Aggregate Name

GPO Lab OpenFlow Aggregate

This aggregate supports the GENI Aggregate Provider Agreement (11/03/2010).

Aggregate Overview

Aggregate Resources The GPO Lab OpenFlow testbed consists of three OpenFlow-controlled switches (one each of HP, NEC, and Quanta) and an FOAM-managed FlowVisor controlling them.
Typical Experiments The GPO Lab OpenFlow testbed is suited for experiments that require flexible, programmable network configuration.
Aggregate Web Page We don't have an informational page at this time, but we intend to add one.
Aggregate Status http://monitor.gpolab.bbn.com/tango/flowvisor/tulum.gpolab.bbn.com.html
Layer 2 Connectivity Internet2, NLR, and other GPO aggregates (e.g. [GeniAggregate/GpoLabProtoGeni ProtoGENI] and [GeniAggregate/GpoLabMyPlc MyPLC]).

GPO Lab OpenFlow testbed consisting of three OpenFlow switches available to experimenters: dill (HP ProCurve), poblano (NEC) and bamboo (Quanta Pronto):

GPO OpenFlow Aggregates

The GPO site has ExoGENI, InstaGENI, ProtoGENI and MyPLC Resource Aggregates, each providing resources with OpenFlow. This section describes the connection details for each aggregate's OpenFlow Requests.

InstaGENI Aggregate

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

  • InstaGENI Switch procurve2: Model: HP J9623A E2620-24 with VLAN 1750 DPID: 06:d6:84:34:97:c6:c9:00
  • GPO Site Switch poblano: Model: NEC IP880 with VLAN 1750 DPID: 06:d6:00:12:e2:b8:a5:d0

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

VLAN ID Purpose
1750 Shared Meso-scale OpenFlow VLAN
1755-1759 Exclusive Meso-scale OpenFlow VLANs to NLR
2644-2649 InstaGENI Stitching 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
3745 Deprecated - Maps inter-campus VLAN ID 3715 to Internet2
3746 Deprecated - Maps inter-campus VLAN ID 3716 to Internet2
3747-3749 InstaGENI Stitching VLAN range 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.

ExoGENI 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

No image "GPOLab-OF-ExoGENI-detail.jpg" attached to GeniAggregate/GpoLabOpenFlow

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.

GPO PG and MyPLC

The following is the layout of OpenFlow switch connections for the GPO PG and MyPLC Aggregates. Shown are the OpenFlow Switches:

  • GPO PG/MyPLC Switch habanero: Model: HP ProCurve 6600 with VLAN 1750 DPID: 06:d6:00:24:a8:c4:b9:00
  • GPO Site Switch poblano: Model: NEC IP8800; VLAN 1750 DPID with 06:d6:00:12:e2:b8:a5:d0

These local VLANs map to these inter-campus VLANs:

VLAN ID Purpose
1750 Shared Meso-scale OpenFlow VLAN
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
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.

GPO WiMAX Resources

The GPO has a WiMAX testbed with external VLANs. This tesbed is expected to support OpenFlow in the future, but is not currently available for experimenters.

WiMAX VLANs include:

VLAN ID Purpose
3733 GPO to Rutgers VLAN
3735 GPO to NYU VLAN
