    54 SPP Nodes will be located at Internet2 backbone sites. SPP nodes are not being developed to support the termination of VLAN tags, thus requiring a VLAN aware switch to connect to the SPP 1Gbps I/O. To view an SPP node configuration with connection requirements [http://groups.geni.net/syseng/attachment/wiki/OverlayHostingNodes/SPP_gpoNodeConfig.pdf click here.]

    68 Each SPP needs one public IP address, which is used by experimenters and others who want to access the SPP.  The virtual ethernet interfaces do not use IP addresses.  There is a possibile need for a non-advertised IP address for each SPP for debugging, console, and other types of maintenance access.  Public addresses have been requested from Internet2.

    74 Layer 2 virtual ethernets between the Gigabit Ethernet switches at all all deployed SPP nodes in Internet2 are required (see [http://groups.geni.net/syseng/attachment/wiki/OverlayHostingNodes/SPP_gpoNodeConfig.pdf SPP interface block diagram].  The !NetGear GSM7328S with a 10GbE module is a likely candidate for the  Gigabit Ethernet switch.

    7676Although the SPP does not terminate VLANS, it is VLAN-aware (can identify tags for example), and should eventually be able to manipulate VLANs as part of the PlanetLab control framework.  Initially, we plan that Internet2 will create static virtual Ethernets with distinct tags between each pair of SPPs in the I2 core !PoPs (two SPPs are in Spiral 1).  PoP locations for GENI deployment are under discussion with I2.
