Jacqueline Brown University of Washington Pacific Northwest Gigapop Internet2 Spring Meeting Arlington, VA USA April 8, 2003
Pacific Wave International Peering Participants at the Pacific Wave peering exchange can… • Peer directly with major R&E networks worldwide; • Reduce costsassociated with IP traffic that would otherwise transit commercial carrier circuits; • Increase efficiencyby directing traffic as quickly as possible to the target network/organization; • Transfer IP traffic inclusive of multicast, IPv4, IPv6; • Access theNOC 24 x 7 x 365. Pacific Wave is also a recommended exchange point for peering with the Abilene/Internet2 network.

National Lambda Rail • National Lambda Rail (NLR) is an initiative that will offer fiber services in support of advanced research and educational activities. NLR is spearheaded through a cooperative partnership between the • Corporation for Network Initiatives in California (CENIC); • Pacific Northwest Gigapop & University of Washington; • U.S. Supercomputing Centers; and • Other major U.S. research and education based networking organizations.
Futures • In Process: upgrade of Pacific Wave to support 10GbE connections • NLR will offer new opportunities: • Infrastructure for creation of new Pacific Wave nodes • Backhaul alternatives • 2003: IEEAF/GEO/Tyco Telecommunications 10-Gbps from Japan to Seattle • Continued support of advanced applications (e.g., streaming media, HDTV applications)
Implementation & Operations Partners In cooperation with IEEAF and Tyco, service design and implementation planning for a significant trans-Pacific circuit donation are underway today between these research and education groups: More Information will be provided as available.
