Notes:

Rough steps for install

Each regional develops their own installation and test plan, which roughly follows these steps. The ExoGENI and InstaGENI projects also develop their own installation and test plans. Contact the regional or project lead directly for more details.

  • Install hardware
    • Rack the switch
    • Power up the switch
    • Ensure OpenFlow firmware is installed
    • Configure switch
  • Set up the control plane connectivity
    • Ensure that a control plane exists between the OpenFlow switch and the FlowVisor machine
    • Ensure that the FlowVisor has a publicly accessible IP (FlowVisor initiates outbound TCP connections to experimenter's controllers)
    • Ensure that a control plane exists between the FlowVisor and the FOAM (note that these two pieces of software can be installed on the same machine)
    • Ensure that the FOAM installation is publicly accessible (Inbound TCP connections to port 3626 needs to be accessible to GENI experimenters)
  • Set up FOAM and FlowVisor
  • Coordinate with the GPO for FOAM testing
  • Coordinate data plane connection and testing
    • Set up a connectivity test interface attached to the OpenFlow deployment
    • Coordinate I2 and/or NLR core network connections
      • Before actually establishing a connection, open a GMOC ticket to track data plane connection and testing
      • Coordinate with the GMOC on the date for connection and testing
      • Coordinate data plane connectivity testing with GPO and GMOC using GMOC ticket
    • Coordinate other data plane connections(e.g. MREN, other regionals, campuses)
      • Before actually establishing an additional remote connection, open a GMOC tracking ticket
      • Coordinate with the GMOC on the date for connection and testing
      • Coordinate data plane connectivity testing with all providers (e.g. MREN, other regional), GPO and GMOC using GMOC ticket
      • Perform minor amounts of throughput testing
  • Set up monitoring
  • Work with GMOC to complete monitoring, mailing list, and emergency contact handoff procedures for your site. When the procedures are complete, the GMOC begins 24x7 monitoring, tracking and dispatching questions and events that involve your site.
  • Review the GENI Aggregate Provider Agreement. Indicate via email to the GPO your intent to abide by the agreement.
  • Complete an Aggregate Information GENI wiki page (see template) for your site, which will be automatically linked here. This lets experimenters know how to request and use your OpenFlow connections in GENI.
  • Complete a GENI OpenFlow experiment with at least two other GENI aggregates.

SOX

Physical install and optical tests complete. OpenFlow network testing in progress.

This aggregate supports the GENI Aggregate Provider Agreement (07/02/2012).

Utah Education Network (UEN)

Network connections to U of Utah with first switch scheduled for 9/24. Have installed FOAM and FlowVisor already.

The Utah Education Network (UEN) Overview wiki page gives the full overview of the project and connectivity with the state of Utah for various InstaGENI racks. This infrastructure interconnects the ProtoGENI/Emulab/Flux research and the InstaGENI racks to the national GENI OpenFlow infrastructure.

The UEN GENI/ProtoGENI Rack connectivity in both PNG and Visio formats:

KanREN/GPN

Project received and installed first year Brocade switches (copper interfaces for KU GpENI cluster and KU KanREN attachment, SFP fiber capabilities for the KanREN-GPN-I2 PoP at 1100 Grand in Kansas city). GpENI machines have been designated for OpenFlow controllers. FOAM, FlowVisor and integration with NDDI, GENI meso-scale networks, and PlanetLab hosts (myPLC in GpENI and other PlanetLab machines outside Kansas) is in process.

CENIC

Physical install complete. OpenFlow testing in progress. Installed second uplink to GENI OpenFlow core via NLR in Sunnyvale 9/18.
