The service also track VLAN delegation for all GENI sites that support stitching. For a list of VLANs delegated by all aggregates supporting stitching see the [https://wiki.maxgigapop.net/twiki/bin/view/GENI/StaticNetworksView Delegated GENI Stitching VLANs] page. Also any [wiki:GeniAggregate GENI aggregate] that supports stitching provides information details in its [wiki:GeniAggregate GENI aggregate] page details.
