Aggregate Name

Utah Education Network OpenFlow Aggregate

The Utah Education Network (UEN) Regional aggregate supports the GENI Aggregate Provider Agreement (10/02/2012).

Aggregate Overview

Aggregate Resources As of 10/01/2012, the UtahUEN-OpenFlow Aggregate consists of a single HP switch that supports an InstaGENI implementation and the ProtoGENI implementation via Hybrid mode. This configuration will change in 2013 to include another aggregate HP switch for Data Center connectivity.
Typical Experiments The UtahUEN-OpenFlow Aggregate infrastructure will support any experiment on the InstaGENI and ProtoGENI infrastructure (wireless, security, protocol development, driver development, etc.)
Aggregate Web Page The Univ. of Utah and UEN Overview page gives more information on the site, design, etc.
Aggregate Status Link to monitoring web page with current status (operational status, resources available, etc) -- Coming
Layer 2 Connectivity The UtahUEN-OpenFlow Aggregate connects both to the GENI OpenFlow backbone and the ProtoGENI backbone. The Aggregate supports VLANs to both backbones through the use of HP's hybrid mode. A diagram of the design is: UEN GENI network diagram
