Shadownet

Shadownet is designed to solve the problem of limited ProtoGENI backbone router resources. By leveraging the logical router features of Juniper routers, we can dynamically create virtual routers as slivers. These virtual routers are then able to provide carrier-grade performance and services for our slices.

The Juniper M7i "virtualizable" router has been deployed into the ProtoGeni backbone. The Instrumentation Tools (INSTOOLS) software system has been adapted to support the monitoring and measuring of these virtual routers in the slice. The measurements are user configurable and easy to access via two interfaces. The INSTOOLS Portal
