Scope

This project will define, design and implement iGENI, a distributed network research infrastructure; integrate it with current and planned GENI resources; and operate it for the use of GENI researchers conducting experiments that involve multiple aggregates (at multiple sites).
The iGENI infrastructure will be defined in collaboration with the GPO and other GENI projects to expand the controllable transport services available to GENI researchers, and make GENI available to more research communities.

The iGENI infrastructure will connect existing resources with iCAIR involvement (e.g. StarLight) with current GENI backbone transport resources (e.g., Internet2 and NLR layer 2/Ethernet VLANs); current and planned GENI regional transport resources (e.g., BEN, CENIC, and others ); and additional available connections to other research networks (e.g. FIRE).

The iGENI infrastructure will be integrated as an aggregate with the ORCA control framework in Cluster D. Through ORCA, available resources in iGENI will be discovered; services will be setup and managed; and individual traffic streams will be controlled and managed. This project will implement interfaces to ORCA that allow dynamic control of network services involving iGENI, associated transport resources and and GENI aggregates. It will be possible to setup services using prepackaged or customized configurations and topologies.
