iMinds Aggregates

iMinds is Flanders' digital research center and business incubator organization established in 2004. The iMinds iLad-t Testbed has 3 Aggregate Managers that allows both Fed4FIRE or [htttp:// GENI] frameworks to be used to access resources. The three aggregates available at the iLad-t Testbed include:

  • Virtual Wall 1 aggregate:
    • GENI AM v2:
    • GENI AM v3:
  • Virtual Wall 2 aggregate:
    • GENI AM v2:
    • GENI AM v3:
  • w-iLab.t aggregate (wireless testbed):
    • GENI AM v2:
    • GENI AM v3:

In addition to the resource aggregates above, iMinds is also responsible for the iMinds Stitching Computation Service.

Establishing Connections

The iMinds iLab.t environment has 3 aggregates that can be used with GENI credentials and the jFed toolkit embedded in the GENI portal. Any GENI user can request resources in both GENI and iMinds environments:

Aggregate Name AM API URL V3 Stitching via iMinds SCS(*)
Virtual Wall 1 yes
Virtual Wall 2 Yes
w-iLab.t N/A

(*) Note: iMinds aggregates are also know the the GENI Test SCS.

Stitching path information and VLAN delegation for Virtual Walls aggregates:

Link id remoteLinkId Stitching VLAN range 197,300-349,750-1000* 300-349
