ExoGENI Aggregate


This ExoGENI aggregate supports the GENI Aggregate Provider Agreement (mm/dd/yyyy).

ExoGENI Aggregate Overview

Aggregate Manager URL
Aggregate Resources An ExoGENI aggregate includes 5 Hosts (2 VM Servers and 3 dedicated PCs) that can load experimenter specified OS images. Racks also support OpenFlow topologies, usually including extensions onto campus OpenFlow networks.
Typical Experiments ExoGENI provides a controllable, predictable, and repeatable network environment. Experimenters can get virtual machines or dedicated PCs on which they have full "root" access, run available operating systems of their choice, and connect nodes in an arbitrary topology that can support OpenFlow.
Aggregate Status Operational monitoring not widely available, restricted access to monitoring at GMOC
Slice Authorities Recognized GENI Project Office (, ProtoGENI (
Usage Policies The GENI Recommended Use Policy is available.
Layer 2 Connectivity NLR and Internet2 available via the GPOLab OpenFlow Aggregate.

The following is the layout of OpenFlow switch connections for the ExoGENI Aggregate. Shown are the OpenFlow Switches:

  • ExoGENI Switch bbn-8264: Model:IBM G8264 with DPID: 00:01:08:17:f4:b5:2a:00
  • GPO Site Switch poblano: Model: NEC IP8800 with VLAN 1750 DPID: 06:d6:00:12:e2:b8:a5:d0

All GPO ExoGENI nodes are on Experimental VLANs. ExoGENI VLANs include:

VLAN ID Purpose
1750 Shared Meso-scale OpenFlow VLAN
1755-1759 Exclusive Meso-scale OpenFlow VLANs to NLR
2601-2610 ExoGENI reservable resource VLAN range to NLR
2650 Single transport VLAN maps inter-campus to NLR
3715 Deprecated - Maps inter-campus VLAN ID 3715 to NLR
3716 Deprecated - Maps inter-campus VLAN ID 3716 to NLR
3741 ExoGENI reservable resource VLAN to Internet2
3745 Deprecated - Maps inter-campus VLAN ID 3715 to Internet2
3746 Deprecated - Maps inter-campus VLAN ID 3716 to Internet2
3750 Single transport VLAN maps inter-campus to Internet2

Note: Deprecated VLANs are only available by special arrangement with the GPO and should not be used for new experiments.
