    22= OpenFlow Specification =
     3   * OpenFlow spec worked in collaboration with industry partners such as Google, Deutsche Telekom, France Telekom, HP, NEC, Marvell and Broadcom.
    34   * We released ver1.1 of the specification with support for
    45      * Multiple tables: An OpenFlow switch can now expose multiple tables to a controller.
    56      * Multipath (Port groups): OpenFlow now supports the notion of "multipath" where a flow can be sent over one of several paths.
    67      * Tags/tunnels: Tag support has been extended to include MPLS shim headers. VLAN tag handling has been modified to support packets with multiple VLAN tags (Q-in-Q encapsulation). Support has been added for tunnels via virtual ports.
     8   * [http://www.openflow.org/documents/openflow-spec-v1.1.0.pdf Complete 1.1 Spec]
     9   * Individual test cases and patches available in different development branches of OpenVSwitch and oftest

    8790   * Helping campuses deploy new software
    8891      * Upgraded Expedient and FlowVisor on all campuses
    89    * Testing controllers on their behalf and sharing our experience
     92   * Testing controllers from BigSwitch and NEC on behalf of the campus and sharing our experience
    9093   * Interact with campuses to obtain feature requirements for SNAC
    9194      * The main request was to introduce VLAN partitioning in the controller
     
    9396= Pronto Switch donation =
    9497We started a solicitation for proposals to jumpstart OpenFlow production deployments through donation of Pronto switches. Based on several rounds of review, we donated close to 31 switches to the following institutions:
    95 The GENI Project Office (GPO), in an effort to grow the OpenFlow networking substrate for GENI, funded Stanford Unviersity to distribute OpenFlow-enabled switches to campuses to help them create or grow their existing OpenFlow networks for both research and production use. We distributed approximately 30 Pronto 3290 switches among the following campuses:
    9698   * MAX Gigapop (PIs: Abdella Battou, Balasubramania N. Pillai)       
    9799   * RENCI - Renaissance Computing Institute (PI: Ilia Baldine)
     
    109111= GEC10 activities =
    110112== Demo ==
    111    * We supported BBN's demo "GENI For Everyone"
    112    * BigSwitch demonstrated their new controller
    113 
     113   * We supported BBN's demo "GENI For Everyone" which dynamically created multiple slices across Stanford, BBN, GaTech and Indiana aggregates. The host traffic was routed through NLR and Internet2.
     114 
    114115== Tutorial ==
    115    * In GEC10, we organized a tutorial for training campus operators to deploy OpenFlow. It was very successful and attended by nearly 45 persons.
     116   * In GEC10, we organized a tutorial for training campus operators and researchers to deploy OpenFlow. It was very successful and attended by nearly 45 people.
