In this tutorial, we are also going to learn how to use the GENI Portal which is a web based tool for managing projects, slices, and for reserving resources across GENI.

The tutorial instructions can be found here.


A basic understanding of GENI concepts (will be covered in the Introduction to GENI and Experimentation using GENI).
