Connector Vlan Schema (6513 Port Assignments)
Keywords: manlan, schema, vlan
To create a VLAN for the
Manhattan Landing Exchange
Point, the two
connectors who wish to communicate with one another would use the
connector with the smallest numerical VLAN ID as the first digit and
the second portion of the VLAN ID would come from the second connector
with the larger numerical VLAN ID.
An example of this would be
between Abilene with the VLAN ID of 01,
and Surfnet with the VLAN ID of 13. The VLAN for these two connectors
is 113. Another example for creating a VLAN between two connectors
would be between Dante#3, whose VLAN ID is 03 and Nysernet whose VLAN
ID is 06. The VLAN between these two connectors is 306.
To assign a VLAN ID for the
Manhattan Landing Exchange Point is done by choosing the next number
available. If we look at the current list of VLAN ID's the next number
available is 15. The next network that connects to the Manhattan
Landing Exchange Point would be given the VLAN ID of 15.
If you notice in the list there
are "available" VLANs that were assigned at one time to a connector
that is no longer connected to the Manhattan Landing Exchange Point.
Those VLAN ID's are available for use, but this document is designed to
explain how we derive at the next VLAN ID for a connector.
