    1717As an experimenter you will need to know about GENI ''clearinghouses'' and GENI ''aggregates''.  A GENI ''clearinghouse'' authenticates experimenters and issues them credentials needed to obtain GENI resources for experimentation.

    19 GENI ''aggregates'' provide resources to experimenters with GENI credentials.  GENI has a number of different aggregates that provide a variety of resources for experimentation.  An important aspect of planning your experiment is deciding what resources you need (type and numbers) and which aggregates might meet your needs.

    29 The following table lists GENI aggregates that are currently available for use by experimenters and the networks (GENI backbone network or the Internet) to which they connect.  GENI has two backbone networks: [http://www.internet2.edu/ Internet2] and [http://www.nlr.net/ National Lambda Rail (NLR)].  The Internet2 backbone provides 1Gbps of dedicated bandwidth for GENI experiments and the NLR backbone provides up to 30Gbps of non-dedicated  bandwidth.   Some aggregates that connect to GENI backbone networks may be connected to other resources on the network using Layer 2 VLANS, giving experimenters the option of running non-IP based Layer 3 and above protocols.  Experimenters wishing to connect Internet2 connected resources to NLR connected resources may do so using the !OpenFlow switch at Atlanta (link to aggregate with more info on this switch).
