1) Agenda Bash
2) OpenDaylight update and discussion
2.5) OpenDaylight REST API (Dale Carder)
3) I2 AL2S: How to integrate with campus and RON SDN implementations?
4) GEC17 meeting: Agenda? Speakers? etc.
4) GEC17: some network engineers, some academics, list will be available from Heidi once the list is somewhat final.
Campus session (not many domain scientists show up at GENI meetings):
1 - panel on success/horror stories on SDN
2 - pre-cursor to FTW - discuss and coordinate future meetings
3 - operations supporting researchers: applications/experiments that improve operations interfaces (e.g., Clemson GENI ideas applied to operations for production networking benefit; e.g., GeorgiaTech another example with industry partnerships; e.g., multipath, multidomain SDN, very applicable/interesting for this community). Multilayer SDN e.g. integration of the photonic control plane.
4 - interdomain stuff for SDN in campus/I2/RON: OESS, OSCARS, SDN exchange point, etc.
5 - Brent's spanning tree - OF
Come up with an agenda, share with Heidi, and then bring it to GENI architects attention to add to/revise.
Brent: spanning tree - turn off spanning tree and enable OF?
OF VLAN, hurts multipathing - add to GEC17 agenda
e.g.: XMPP in southbound for Juniper
Southbound interface: may be OpenFlow or otherwise
Different versions of OF can be southbound as well
Java interfaces on SAL so any protocol can be hooked into
OpenStack uses OVSDB to provision/configure
Project submission: have a working code and then submit
Dale: Cisco controller and OpenDaylight (possibly Floodlight later), API using python, anybody with any such API already available? Use case is on firewall + OpenFlow switch to shunt traffic around the firewall. Think ScienceDMZ sort of environment.
Chris: OESS can handle multiple controllers, abstraction between controllers
Application development process: pick a controller, the controller location, and then develop according to the API provided by the controller, mostly static flow push may handle most situations
DBUS(?) interface on OESS
Internet2 AL2S: useful link for 3) http://www.nitrd.gov/nitrdgroups/images/6/61/1,15,13Internet2-GENI.pdf Slide number 17 has the software architecture.
OESS - OSCARS: OSCARS protocol, build circuits by OESS by OF OR through OSCARS
OSCARS - MPLS
OESS - VLANs
end point selection done through OSCARS
federated system - coordination between OSCARS & OESS
OESS - OSCARS: independent systems but coordinate
OESS can signal IDC - Clemson 100G network, some OESS UI input from Dan
Clemson campus controller? Couple instances of FloodLight, beta test with commercial controller, campus Science DMZ (CC-NIE)
regional controller instances, campus controller instances - how do they coordinate?
SDN Exchange Point: one step at a time, first build and figure out as we go, particularly the interdomain issues, couple some security functions at the exchange point to strengthen such a inter-domain exchange point.
See https://www.nanog.org/meetings/nanog57/presentations/Wednesday/wed.lightning3.whyte.sdn.controlled.exchange.fabric.pdf (Google Project Cardigan)
OS3E Demo - http://www.internet2.edu/network/ose/ linked off the ose page but now uses Shib so I don'tknow if you can actually do a demo anymore.
Dan & Brent: Cisco Nexus: cannot turn off spanning tree (HP - cannot turn off anything!)
Cumulus (James Hamilton blog) announcement: linux dist network operating system (http://cumulusnetworks.com/) ODM hardwarehttp://perspectives.mvdirona.com/2013/06/18/CumulusNetworksASneakPreviewOfOneOfMyFavoriteStartups.aspx
Dale: Not clear how this is different than Pica8 or even Arista. Brent claims it may be just the linux-ness of it (such as apt-get / yum).
GEC17: send your travel grant application!
