Texas A&M University Operational Data

This page captures GENI rack information that is intended for Operators. The goal is to capture site contacts, connectivity, and VLANs.

Note anything unusual about this rack in this section. For example, this is a 12-node rack instead of a standard 5-node rack.

Data Plane

This section captures data plane information for Texas A&M University detailing site topology, VLAN, Network Providers (I2/Regional) and network address information. Be sure to note the total link bandwidth of data plane connections. Note the vendor and model for any OpenFlow switches that are not part of a GENI rack.

Additional sites that are important to operations for this one (e.g. VLANs through a non-GENI regional) should also be captured here.
