    55The topology used in this experiment is the same as the one used in the  [wiki:GENIExperimenter/Tutorials/OpenFlowOVS Intro to OpenFlow using OVS] tutorial: Three virtual machines (VMs) connected by an !OpenFLow switch. However this tutorial uses the hardware !OpenFlow switch on the rack instead of a software OVS switch.

     7You will use the same controller you developed in the previous tutorial.  Make sure it is still running.

    79GENI  offers 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:
    810   1. By VLAN id.  This is used when each slice has its own VLANs.   
    9    2. By IP addresses or by Ethernet type.  This is used when multiple slices share the same VLAN. 
     11   2. By IP addresses or by Ethernet type.  This is used when multiple slices share the same VLAN.  For example, the Mesoscale VLAN 1750 that has been set up as a shared VLAN on all GENI racks.
    1012Both approaches to slicing are covered in this tutorial.

    4347The [wiki:GENIExperimenter/Tutorials/OpenFlowOVS topology] for this experiment is very similar to the one that uses OVS, the main difference is that instead of the OVS we are going to connect the compute resources to a hardware OpenFlow switch.
