Exclusive OpenFlow Mesoscale VLANs

The GENI mesoscale has a set of VLANs that are advertised at GENI rack aggregates as exclusive OpenFlow VLANs. These VLANs can be reserved in the GENI mesoscale in a way that the VLAN will be exclusive to a given experiment. Note that these VLANs do not exist at all aggregates.

To reserve an Exclusive OpenFlow Mesoscale VLAN for your experiment, contact gpo-infra@geni.net, and let us know when you'd like to start using the VLAN (if not "immediately"), and when you expect to be done with it (if you're not sure, give us a date after which we should check back with you to see if you're done).

Please DO NOT use a VLAN that you haven't reserved. Thanks!

Current reservations

This section describes the Exclusive OpenFlow Mesoscale VLANs that are currently reserved.

VLAN name VLAN ID Reserved by/for Reserved until
exclusive-openflow-1755 1755
exclusive-openflow-1756 1756
exclusive-openflow-1757 1757
exclusive-openflow-1758 1758
exclusive-openflow-1759 1759

Shared OpenFlow Mesoscale VLAN

You do not need to reserve any VLAN IDs to use the shared OpenFlow Mesoscale VLAN. Please reserve a subnet instead, and if necessary, you can also reserve ethertypes.

Other Shared VLANs

If a VLAN is listed by an aggregate manager as in <rspec_shared_vlan> section of its advertisement, and it is not one of the exclusive mesoscale VLANs, please contact the rack operator that is listed on the GeniAggregate page before using it

GENI Stitching VLANs

Note that GENI stitching is still in a prototype phase.
GENI-stitched VLANs are reserved through aggregate managers. You do not need to reserve stitching VLANs here.
