    66  * ''More resources than would ordinarily be found in your lab.''  Since GENI is a suite of infrastructures it can potentially provide you with more resources than is typically found in any one laboratory.  This is especially true for compute resources: GENI provides access to large testbeds with hundreds of PCs and to cloud computing resources.
    77  * ''Non-IP connectivity across resources.''  Some GENI aggregates allow you to set up Layer 2 connections between resources within the aggregate.  Experimenters may install and run their own Layer 3 and above protocols on these resources.  It is also possible to setup Layer 2 connections between many GENI aggregates that connect to GENI backbone networks (Internet2 and NLR).  You can even set up your network to route through experimenter programmable switches in the GENI backbone.
