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
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 multiple OpenFlow Aggregates and a page is available for each ExoGENI, InstaGENI, ProtoGENI and MyPLC Resource Aggregates to describes their OpenFlow connection details :

Note: The GPO site also has a WiMAX testbed with external VLANs, which is expected to support OpenFlow in the future, but is not currently available for experimenters. WiMAX VLANs include: VLAN 3733 (GPO to Rutgers) and VLAN 3735 (GPO to NYU)

Each of the aggregate listed above access either NLR or Internet2 via the Site's OpenFlow Switch named Poblano, whose connections are captured below:
