This page will guide you through running a simple non-IP experiment in GENI. The only thing you will need is a GENI account. If you don't already have one, sign up!

In order to go through this tutorial you will need to use a tool for reserving resources. You can use either Flack or Omni. If you haven't used any of these tools before, please go through the introductory tutorials first.

1. Create your experiment

In order to setup the necessary resources (compute and network ones) follow these steps:

  1. Create a slice. Name your slice something like xxxomni (where xxx are your initials).
  2. Reserve resources. In this step we are going to reserve resources using the rspec file from this URL: The topology that this rspec describes looks like this:
  3. Wait until your resources are ready
