GPO OpenFlow Aggregates

The GPO site has three OpenFlow Aggregates and a page is available for each ExoGENI FOAM, InstaGENI FOAM, and GPOLab FOAM. The GPO Lab FOAM is used to support OpenFlow experiments for GPO ProtoGENI as well as providing NLR/I2 access for the ExoGENI and InstaGENI FOAM aggregates. Pages have been created to describes the potential OpenFlow connection details available from the GPOLab site:

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

These local VLANs map to these inter-campus VLANs:

VLAN ID Purpose
1750 Shared Meso-scale OpenFlow VLAN
1755-1759 Exclusive Meso-scale OpenFlow VLANs to NLR

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)
