Aggregate Manager Common Name uen-of
Aggregate Resources 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.
Slice Authorities Recognized GENI Portal (, ProtoGENI (, and/or PlanetLab (
Usage Policies A GENI Recommended Use Policy is available. Site should also add links here to their own usage policies.
Aggregate Status Operational monitoring not widely available, restricted access to monitoring at GMOC
Layer 2 Connectivity The UtahUEN-OpenFlow Aggregate connects both to the GENI OpenFlow backbone via I2 OpenFlow Los Angeles 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
