Project Title

GENI@SoX – A Regional GENI Deployment

Technical Contacts

PI: Russell Clark, Southern Light Rail, Georgia Institute of Technology ,
Backup: Cas D'Angelo,

Participating Organizations

Southern Light Rail

GPO Liaison System Engineer

GPO System Engineer: Heidi Dempsey


This project will deploy an OpenFlow substrate in the Southeast region to enable GENI OpenFlow access at 19 member institutions and collaboration with GENI rack deployment projects. This proposed project will increase the accessibility of GENI throughout the Southeastern United States. The proposed project leverages previous work deploying GENI services on the Georgia Tech and Clemson campuses. GENI@SoX deployments will be fully compliant with GENI software standards for GENI aggregates, as published at GENI Engineering Conferences. The sites will use one or more GENI Aggregate Managers controlling access to the aggregate resources. The sites will also support GENI experimenter access. The sites will support shared GENI monitoring and operations procedures and interfaces for the meso-scale infrastructure as published at GENI Engineering Conferences.

Current Capabilities

BRIEF descriptions of resources/functions/tools that are available to anyone in the GENI community

The first OpenFlow enabled switch was installed in the SoX regional POP on May 16, 2012. The switch initially provides direct OpenFlow capable switching of VLAN 1750 between Internet 2, Georgia Tech and Clemson University. There is a FOAM/FlowVisor control server configured as well.

Spiral 2 Connectivity

Links to wiki pages about details of infrastructure that the project is using (if any). Examples include IP addresses, hostnames, URLs, DNS servers, local site network maps, VLANIDs (if permanent VLANs are used), pointers to public keys. GPO may do first drafts of any of these and have the PI correct them to bootstrap. May also include ticket links for pending or known connectivity issues. Many projects will have a full tree of wiki pages here.
