    94  GENI has two backbone networks: [http://www.internet2.edu/ Internet2] and [http://www.nlr.net/ National Lambda Rail (NLR)].  The 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 switches in Atlanta .
