This effort will support early trial linkage of research network operators as part of understanding management of a global-scale, federated infrastructure suite that can support GENI. GMOC engineers and ETRI/KISTI engineers will use a donated 1 Gbps international connection between Korea and Indiana University to test methods of interoperability between GMOC and the dvNOC system. The dvNOC is being developed as a part of the GLORIAD-KR project funded by Korean government and is in use by ETRI/KISTI. Examples would include testing a data stream of “externally significant” operational data between GMOC and dvNOC, including things like outage information and maintenance notification.

Links to wiki pages about details of infrastrcture that the project is using (if any). Examples include IP addresses, hostnames, URLs, DNS servers, local site network maps, VLANIDs (if permanent VLANs are used), pointers to public keys. GPO may do first drafts of any of these and have the PI correct them to bootstrap. May also include ticket links for pending or known connectivity issues. Many projects will have a full tree of wiki pages here.
