Phase 1 Testing

  • Boot in L2/L3 Mode (Complete)
  • Basic configuration template (Complete)
    • Username/Password
    • SNMP
    • TACACS
      • Unable to login with "backdoor" username/password if TACACS is enabled. Until this is addressed, TACACS isn't an option
      • Unable to configure remote port. Pica8 is aware and will address in future revision.
    • SSH Enabled / Telnet Disabled
    • Syslogging
  • Basic Openflow configuration testing (Complete)
    • Enable Openflow globally
    • Connect to Flowvisor
    • Verify resource advertisement remotely


Phase 2 Testing

  • Layer1Transport testing
    • layer1transport configured on NLR FOAM with test rules
    • Configure switch with connection toward layer1transport service
    • Generate traffic from BSSW test host
    • Verify basic traffic connectivity
    • Performance testing?


Phase 3 Testing

  • BSSW to develop "newer" version of OVS software
    • SNMP/TACACS enabled
    • CLI similar to L2/L3 Mode
  • Future testing?

  • Break existing SUNN to ATLA GENI backbone and insert new switch into path
    • Port 48 --> Atlanta
    • Port 47 --> Sunnyvale (Soon to be El Paso)
    • Port 46 --> Kansas City (New Connection / Disabled at this moment)
  • Verify GENI backbone connectivity


El Paso Switch Deployment
