Ohio Metro Data Center

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:

Data Plane

This section captures Data plane information for Ohio State University 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.

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.
