On July 7 2009 the RENCI/Duke project ORCA-BEN demonstrated to the GENI Project Office the successful dynamic establishment of VLANs across NLR backbone and BEN network. The demo consisted of dynamically creating of a number of virtual machine instances at several sites (RENCI, Duke, UNC-CH) linked together by linked VLANs provisioned across NLR and BEN. The demo showcased the ability of the ORCA control framework to create complex isolated  'slices' of substrate and the ability to use pre-provisioned VLANs across nation-wide backbone providers, like NLR, as well as dynamically create VLANs across BEN and seamlessly link these VLANs together. 

This demo takes another step towards creating an ORCA-based operational capability for BEN to enable dynamic provisioning of BEN resources by Triangle researchers in support of experimentation.
