    3333[[BR]] In the example above, in order to connect a host on Rack A to a host on Rack B, different portions of the network need to be provisioned by different organizations (organizations hosting Rack A and Rack B, the regional networks that connect Rack A and Rack and the provider of the GENI core network which is Internet2) and at the peering points the organizations need to coordinate to ensure that they establish a working end-to-end Layer 2 path.

    35 === Connection resources to GENI ===
     35GENI stitching is a generic capability for providing network federation between different organizations and has also been used when federating with other testbeds as described here.
     37=== Wireless Networking in GENI ===
     38The main wireless resources in GENI are through 3G and 4G base stations that are offering a GENI networking at the selected sites. The first generation of base stations were using the WiMAX technology, while the second generation that is being deployed as of 2015 are using LTE technology. The GENI base stations have a backhaul connection to a local GENI rack and through the rack connecting back to the GENI backbone network. In this way a user can put together a multi-site wireless experiment using the GENI dataplane.
     40=== Connecting resources to GENI ===
     41The best way to connect unique resources to a GENI experiment is through a GENI rack. As noted in the architecture Figure 1, a campus can connect different resources (e.g. resources at a specific lab)  through the dataplane switch of their local GENI Rack.
