    14 To submit issues, VLAN provisioning/translation requests, or question, send email to [mailto:noc@net.internet2.edu]. To report a problem submit information at the [http://globalnoc.iu.edu/i2network/support/report-a-problem.html problem report] page.
     5GENI Sites can be directly connected (or indirectly via a Regional network) to the following core networks: Internt2 Advanced Layer2 Service (AL2S) and Interoperable On-demand Network (ION).  AL2S provide scalable and flexible access to short or long-term Layer 2 circuits between endpoints on the I2 Network and beyond. GENI core networks AL2S and ION are run by [http://www.internet2.edu Internet2] a community of research, academia, industry and government technology contributors.  For detailed information about the AL2S and ION networks see the [http://www.internet2.edu/products-services/advanced-networking/ Internet2 Advanced Networking] page. Please note that the ION service is being phased out. For details on how they are connected to GENI Sites, please see the [wiki:ConnectivityHome GENI Connectivity] page.

     19Most GENI sites connected to AL2S support GENI Network Stitching. See the [wik:GeniAggregate/I2AL2S AL2S GENI aggregate] page for a list of links that support stitching.

    18 From the [attachment:200909-IS-ION-HowTo.pdf ION HowTo]:
    19 >Internet2 ION (Interoperable On-demand Network) is a revolutionary network service that allows researchers and engineers alike to create dedicated, point-to-point optical circuits—for immediate or future use—through a simple, secure web interface.

    25 == ION connectors ==
    26 For a complete list of Organizations that can connect to ION see,
    27 http://www.internet2.edu/ion/connector-status.html
    28 
    29 == Known Issues ==
    30  * A person with an ION account currently cannot see circuits provisioned by other members of the same organization.
    31    * There are potential work arounds for seeing all circuits provisioned to a given endpoint name. Talk to I2 staff if you require this ability.
    32  * The history view returns an error.
    33 
    34 
    35 == Establishing an Endpoint ==
    36 === Internet2 Higher-Education Members ===
    37 From the [attachment:200909-IS-ION-HowTo.pdf ION HowTo]:
    38 >Researchers at Internet2 higher education member institutions who wish to collaborate using ION should first contact their campus network organization for support. The campus network team can then determine if their institution has an “enabled” link to an Internet2 Connector or other regional network. If their Internet2 Connector does not yet have a physical connection to ION, the Connector can submit a request using the process outlined above.
    39 
    40 === Initial Connections ===
    41 From the [attachment:200909-IS-ION-HowTo.pdf ION HowTo]:
    42 >The first step to take advantage of ION service is to interconnect with the Internet2 ION infrastructure via a 1GigE or 10GigE Ethernet connection. The logistics of that connection will be handled as part of the turnup process.
    43 
    44 === How Can Internet2 Members Determine if They Are ION-enabled? ===
    45 The current ION service uses the Internet2 Juniper infrastructure and any can create a Layer 2 MPLS LSP to any site physically connected to the Internet2 IP backbone.
    46 
    47 == ION Web Service Account ==
    48 The contact address for getting new ION accounts is: systems-support@tick.globalnoc.iu.edu.
    49 
    50 == VLAN Provisioning within ION ==
    51 
    52 This section outlines Provisioning within ION's web service, for the complete procedure of provisioning a VLAN between two sites see ConnectivityGuidelines.
    53 
    54 Once you have an ION account you will be able to provision VLANs between site's endpoints using the [https://ion.net.internet2.edu:8443/ion/# ION VLAN provisioning webpage].
    55 
    56 === Required Topology Info ===
    57   * Your endpoint's name
    58   * Your VLAN to this endpoint to dedicate to connecting to the other site.
    59   * Your partner site's endpoint's name
    60   * The VLAN that your partner site is dedicating to connecting to your site.
    61 
    62 === Creating the Circuit ===
    63 If you know the other endpoint's ION name, creating a circuit is straightforward.  Click the 'Reserve Circuits' tab, and fill out appropriate values.  Things to know:
    64  * "source" tab:
    65    * Description: put something meaningful and unique here, in case the first test fails, though the ION ID is also unique
    66    * Source: your campus's ION endpoint. It would be similar to bbn.bost.dcn.internet2.edu
    67  * "destination" tab:
    68    * Destination: the other endpoint's ION name.  If you don't already know this you may be able to browse for a reasonable name
    69  * "time" tab: change these values to make the circuit good for the length of time you need; 1 hour isn't very useful
    70  * "bandwidth" tab: as appropriate though keep this as small as possible.
    71  * "vlan" tab:
    72    * Unclick "Same VLAN number on source and destination"
    73    * The source VLAN will be the VLAN you've provisioned to your endpoint for this connection. Usually this will be a "Tagged" VLAN. (i.e. dot1q)
    74    * The destination VLAN should be whatever you agreed on with the remote site.  The tagging status is also whatever is appropriate for them (probably also tagged)
    75 
    76 == extending an ION circuit ==
    77 It's possible to "extend" the reservation of existing ION circuits. Do this by clicking on "View/Edit" for the circuit in question and then enter the circuit's new expiration date and time.
    78 
    79 '''Note''' the "cancel" button in the "view circuits" screen means canceling, i.e. de-provision, the circuit. this '''does not''' cancel the edit request and take you back to the screen listing the ION circuits.
    80 
    81 == VLAN Translation ==
    82 
    83 ION can do VLAN translation as mentioned in [#CreatingtheCircuit above]. ION will provide VLAN translation automatically if the "Same VLAN number on source and destination" is unchecked; the two VLAN ID's do not need to be equal.

    86 == OpenFlow ==
     24Internet2 ION (Interoperable On-demand Network) is a network service that allows researchers and engineers to create dedicated, point-to-point optical circuits—for immediate or future use—through a secure web interface or vi the GENI AM API interface.
