A key architectural question for GENI has been how to connect the resources provided by multiple aggregates into a coherent network. The key objective is to enable automated and realtime network stitching for slices which span multiple aggregates. Connecting resources across aggregates remains a significant challenge and requirement for GENI. We will demonstrate a common RSpec element to describe stitching resources, and progress on dynamic VLAN instantiation between ProtoGENI and MAX via ION.
