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)
