Milestones

Project 1945 - FY 2015

  • For GEC21 (October 2014) and through December 2014:
    • Continue work on the GENI stitching architecture to extending GENI stitching for a range of connection/transport types and L2 broadcast domains. Based on work from Year 1 of this project, the stitching enhancements focus areas are expected to be Virtual Topology Service (VTS), GRE, and multipoint. An update to the stitching architecture document that defines the stitching architecture and implementation plan in the context of these focus areas will be generated. Deliver an updated stitching architecture document update to the GENI Program Manger by the end CY 2014.
    • Continue work on defining architecture for Software Defined Network Exchange (SDX) and Software Defined Infrastructure Exchange (SDIx) in the context GENI infrastructures. Work with the GPO and others to define these design concepts, architectures, and support demonstrations.
  • For GEC22 (March 2015):
    • Extend SCS to support the multi-point and the additional stitching technologies as defined in the updated stitching architecture document. Demonstrate multi-point stitching capabilities across AL2S or other infrastructures at GEC22. Demonstrate stitching based on VTS or GRE technologies at GEC22.
    • Develop designs for SCS to enable user and user tools (OMNI, JACKS, Portal) to determine what options are available for inter-aggregate connections. This should include options based on GRE, VLAN based Stitching (point-to-point and multipoint), and the Virtual Topology Service (VTS). Provide an updated stitching architecture and design document that describes these feature set and designs one week before GEC22.
    • Continue work on defining architecture for Software Defined Network Exchange (SDX) and Software Defined Infrastructure Exchange (SDIx) in the context GENI infrastructures. Work with the GPO and others to define these design concepts and architectures.
  • For GEC23 (June 2015):
    • Extend SCS to support the user tools assistance features defined in the updated stitching architecture document. Demonstrate user assistance tools at GEC23.
    • Define the plan and design for Stitching Computation Service (SCS) packaging, documentation and knowledge transfer for production deployment. Provide an updated stitching architecture and design document that describes these plans and designs one week before GEC23. Provide production SCS packaging and documentation one month after GEC23.
    • Continue work on defining architecture for Software Defined Network Exchange (SDX) and Software Defined Infrastructure Exchange (SDIx) in the context GENI infrastructures. Work with the GPO and others to define these design concepts and architectures.

Project 1860 - FY 2015 (NCE)

  • FY 2015 Project 1860 NCE: During this No Cost Extension (NCE) period, the activities will focus on the update and maintenance of the MAX and ION Aggregate Manager software. This will include incorporating needed changes related to the GENI Aggregate Manager APIs and SFA software releases and bug fixes. These activities are continuations of a task defined from the previous budget period of this project. The MAX and Internet2 ION network run separate instances of the MAX Aggregate Manager software. The activities during this period will also include coordination and testing associated with deploying upgraded Aggregate Manager software on the ION network.
