    33A key architectural question for GENI has been how to connect the resources provided by multiple aggregates into a coherent network. The key objective is to enable automated and realtime network stitching for slices which span multiple aggregates. Ethernet VLANs have been identified as the initial network technology to provide slice level inter-aggregate connections and isolation.

    5 Currently there is an [http://wiki.maxgigapop.net/twiki/bin/view/GENI/NetworkStitching Stitching Architecture adopted architecture], including an RSpec schema for describing stitching resources and requests.
     5Currently there is an [http://wiki.maxgigapop.net/twiki/bin/view/GENI/NetworkStitching Stitching Architecture adopted architecture], including an RSpec schema for describing stitching resources and requests. There is also a prototype Stitching Computation Service, and a client tool as part of Omni. This architecture is further implemented at many InstaGENI and some ExoGENI racks.

    7 Current efforts involve specifying and implementing a topology service and a computation service (per the stitching architecture), and fielding this architecture at more GENI aggregates.
     7This approach was demonstrated at [wiki:GEC17Agenda/GENIWideAreaNetworking GEC17]. A sample experiment showing how to use this technology is posted [wiki:GENIExperimenter/ExperimentExample-stitching here].
