     35The scope of work on this project is to extend ORCA (a candidate GENI control framework) to include the optical resources available in BEN.  Also, to make a reference implementation of ORCA available to additional GENI prototypes and assist, with limited support, in the integration of ORCA into select wireless/sensor prototypes.  The team will operate a clearinghouse for the various testbeds under the ORCA control framework.  Also, connect with the NLR backbone network !FrameNet service to facilitate end-to-end VLAN's connections into BEN.  Finally, make the integrated (VLAN connections and control framework) ORCA/BEN infrastructure available to external researchers by the end of Year-1.
