GEC21 An Introduction to the GENI Network Architecture

Live Stream Information



Wednesday 11.30am - 12.30pm

Session Leaders


We will discuss the portions of the GENI architecture experimenters need to know to run experiments including:

  • What is a GENI rack? What happens inside a GENI rack?
  • The components of the GENI network and the relationships between them including: GENI racks, campuses, regionals, and backbones.
  • Inter-aggregate connectivity: various ways of connecting reserved resources at multiple aggregates for data connections. We will survey the options available in GENI, including ExoGENI stitching, GRE tunnels, IP on the control plane, shared VLANs, and OpenFlow.
  • OpenFlow in GENI: software vs hardware switches and intra-rack vs inter-rack connectivity

Slides: TBD
