The GENI network core is a set of OpenFlow-capable switches in NLR and Internet2.

There are two standing VLANs (3715 and 3716) carried on the ten switches in the core, which are located in the nine cities shown on the maps below. Each VLAN in each provider is topologically a broken ring (to help prevent accidental loops), with the two rings in each VLAN linked in Atlanta. The gap in each VLAN is between two different links, to provide either a longer or shorter path through the core between two switches. The two VLANs are not interconnected in the core, and should not be interconnected in regionals or at GENI sites either.
