    3434== 3  GENI Resources ==
    3535GENI has a number of aggregates that make different kinds of resources available for use by experimenters.  Examples of such resources include: 
    36   * [wiki:ExperimenterPortal#a8.1BackboneNetworks Backbone networks.]  Geographically distributed GENI resources may be connected to one another using [http://www.internet2.edu/ Internet2], [http://www.nlr.net/ National Lambda Rail (NLR)] or the public Internet.  Many aggregates can be connected using Layer 2 VLANS over Internet2 and NLR.  Most aggregates can be connected using IP.
    37   * [wiki:ExperimenterPortal#a8.2ProgrammableHosts Programmable hosts.]   GENI provides a wide array of programmable hosts such as entire PCs from the [wiki:GeniAggregate/UtahProtoGeni ProtoGENI] aggregate that can be booted with an experimenter specified operating system; operating system virtual machines that can host experimenter software from the [wiki:GeniAggregate/PlanetLab PlanetLab] and [wiki:GeniAggregate/UtahProtoGeni ProtoGENI] aggregates , programming language virtual machines from the [wiki:GeniAggregate/MillionNodeGeni Million Node GENI] aggregate and cloud computing resources from the GENICloud aggregate.
    38   * [wiki:ExperimenterPortal#a8.3ProgrammableNetworks Programmable networks.]  Experimenter programmable switches within the GENI backbone networks (e.g. [wiki:GeniAggregate/ProtoGeniBackBoneNodes ProtoGENI backbone nodes] and SPP nodes) and at campuses around the country (e.g. Stanford OpenFlow network).
    39   * [wiki:ExperimenterPortal#a8.4WirelessTestbeds Wireless testbeds.]  Resources for wireless experiments such as the [wiki:GeniAggregate/OrbitWirelessTestbed ORBIT] and [wiki:GeniAggregate/Dome DOME] testbeds.
     36  * [wiki:AvailableAggregates#a1BackboneNetworks Backbone networks.]  Geographically distributed GENI resources may be connected to one another using [http://www.internet2.edu/ Internet2], [http://www.nlr.net/ National Lambda Rail (NLR)] or the public Internet.  Many aggregates can be connected using Layer 2 VLANS over Internet2 and NLR.  Most aggregates can be connected using IP.
     37  * [wiki:AvailableAggregates#a2ProgrammableHosts Programmable hosts.]   GENI provides a wide array of programmable hosts such as entire PCs from the [wiki:GeniAggregate/UtahProtoGeni ProtoGENI] aggregate that can be booted with an experimenter specified operating system; operating system virtual machines that can host experimenter software from the [wiki:GeniAggregate/PlanetLab PlanetLab] and [wiki:GeniAggregate/UtahProtoGeni ProtoGENI] aggregates , programming language virtual machines from the [wiki:GeniAggregate/MillionNodeGeni Million Node GENI] aggregate and cloud computing resources from the GENICloud aggregate.
     38  * [wiki:AvailableAggregates#a3ProgrammableNetworks Programmable networks.]  Experimenter programmable switches within the GENI backbone networks (e.g. [wiki:GeniAggregate/ProtoGeniBackBoneNodes ProtoGENI backbone nodes] and SPP nodes) and at campuses around the country (e.g. Stanford OpenFlow network).
     39  * [wiki:AvailableAggregates#a4WirelessTestbeds Wireless testbeds.]  Resources for wireless experiments such as the [wiki:GeniAggregate/OrbitWirelessTestbed ORBIT] and [wiki:GeniAggregate/Dome DOME] testbeds.
