Project Title

Enterprise GENI: Prototype, Demonstrate and Create Kits for Replication

a.k.a. ENTGENI

Technical Contacts

Principal Investigator Nick McKeown

Guru Parulkar

Guido Appenzeller

Participating Organizations

Stanford University, Stanford CA






The scope of work on this project is to illustrate how GENI can be deployed on local networks, such as campus and enterprise networks, and to develop a kit that allows the work demonstrated in this project to be easily replicated elsewhere.

Priority activities that contribute to this scope include the following items:

  1. Deploy Enterprise GENI technology in a campus (wireline and wireless).
  2. Integrate an OpenFlow network with a GENI control framework in an Aggregate Component Manager.
  3. Provide access to Enterprise GENI testbeds for GENI users.
  4. Define an Enterprise GENI deployment kit for research and potential commercial transition.


ENTGENI: Version 0 Aggregate Component Manager
ENTGENI: Draft API/protocol between ENTGENI AM and Clearinghouse
ENTGENI: Deploy Phase 0 Enterprise GENI network at Stanford
ENTGENI: Start integrating interfaces from ENTGENI AM to Clearinghouse
ENTGENI: Integrate EntGENI with GENI virtual ethernets
ENTGENI: Demonstrate OpenFlow in GENI
ENTGENI: Collaborate with O&M and Security teams
ENTGENI: Host OpenFlow workshop at Stanford

Project Technical Documents

The Enterprise GENI project will be participating in the Control Framework working group. An API document for the "mimimal" interface between an OpenFlow Aggregate Manager and the PlanetLab GENI clearinghouse is expected as part of the project integration and design work.

Links to wiki pages or repository locations for the project's technical documents eventually go here. The list should include any document submitted to GENI working groups, as well as other useful documents.

Spiral 1 Connectivity

An OpenFlow network will be installed at Stanford. The network will be serving locations in the Computer Science department, and one or more campus wireless access points. IP connectivity between Stanford and the PlanetLab clearinghouse at Princeton is required. IP connectivity to other projects in Cluster B is required for integration and demonstration (GushProto, ProvisioningService, MidAtlanticNet, GpENI, OverlayHostingNodes, GENISecurity, and GENIMetaOps). IP connectivity to other OpenFlow switches on Internet2 and NLR (not installed by GENI) and potentionally other core networks is desired. Virtual Ethernet (L2) connectivity between the OpenFlow switches at Stanford and Internet2 GENI virtual ethernets via CENIC is required. An already existing OpenFlow switch at Stanford tunnels through CENIC to access another already existing OpenFlow switch on Internet2, so it may be possible to reuse the existing infrastructure for GENI.
