Technical Design SC13

In partnership with BCNet and CANARIE we have deployed and OpenFlow testbed across Canada. The western most node of the testbed was connected to the Super Computing 2013 show floor to form part of inter-continental WAN OpenFlow testbed spanning Victoria – Denver – San Paulo – Chicago – New York – Amsterdam – CERN (in Geneva). The demonstration network is composed of multiple 10G network links crossing BCNet, CANARIE, Internet 2, USLHCNET, GEANT networks.
