MOXI Operational Data

This page captures information for InstaGENI sites that is intended for Operators. The goal is to capture site contacts, connectivity, and VLANs.


Site contact information for MOXI.

Data Plane

This section captures Data plane information for MOXI detailing site topology, VLAN, Network Providers (I2/Regional) and network address information. Additional site which is not specified, but deemed important, can also be captured here.

Data plane connectivity diagram

Provide a diagram that captures device, ports and VLAN information at ingress and outgress for transport network. For non-OF connections provide device names and ports connected to transport network (I2/Regional) and VLAN used for those ports. Diagram should capture campus connections.

MOXI Architecture

Layer 2 information

Provide layer 2 information for Circuits VLANs, plus network connection end-points, and purpose of VLAN.

*In the VLAN column, a single ID indicates that the port is an access port. A T followed by one or more IDs indicates that the port is a trunk (aka tagged) port with those VLAN IDs.

Control Plane

This section captures Control plane information for MOXI detailing topology and network address information. Additional site which is not specified, but deemed important, can also be captured here.

Details of Control plane connectivity

  1. What is the upstream ISP?
    • CENIC
  2. What is the identifier for the border router and port facing the ISP?
    • Please see diagram below.
  3. Is the rack directly connected to the border router?
    • No, the Internet connection connects to a BB switch in bloomington which connects to both RTR.LL and RTR.ICTC
