     5GENI and FIRE offer access to hardware !OpenFlow switches. Each !OpenFlow switch in most cases can support only one controller.  There are two ways of slicing the controller flowspace:
     6   1. By VLAN id.  This is used when each slice has its own VLANs.   For instructions to use the !OpenFlow switches with private VLANs, see [].
     7   2. By IP addresses.  This is used when multiple slices share the same VLAN.  For example, the GENI mesoscale VLAN.  For instructions, see [].

    829In GENI there is a common VLAN that has been setup for all the GENI racks and within this VLAN experimenters can reserve a flowspace based on IP or eth_type. Experimenter can also obtain a private VLAN only for their slice. For this tutorial we are going to use the common VLAN that has been setup.
