Networking on Chameleon is implemented using OpenStack Neutron.
Most experiments will require Basic Networking functionality including Internet access and connectivity between nodes. Chameleon provides basic networking capabilities via a pre-configured shared network called
sharednet1. Many experiments require additional connectivity and control of the network. Theses experiments can utilize Chameleon’s advanced networking capabilities including Isolated Network VLANs, External Layer2 Connections (Stitching), and Software Defined Networking.
