  1. Advanced Networking and Internet2 Exploring Perspectives on the Role of High-speed Networks in Development IDB-CLARA dialogue Ana Preston, Program Manager, International 12 June 2003

  2. Welcome! Who is this person with the accent? Thank you for the invitation to participate What I will talk about: • Internet2 in the US • International partnerships and Internet2 • Internet2 and CLARA

  3. Internet2: Mission and Goals Develop and deploy advanced network applications and technologies for research and higher education, accelerating the creation of tomorrow’s internet. • Enable new generation of applications • Create leading edge R&E network capability • Transfer technology and experience to the global production Internet

  4. OK, really what is Internet2? • Membership-driven organization based in the US • Established in 1997 • led by higher ed to support missions (research, teaching and learning) of our members • focus on advanced networking capabilities: • Persistent, reliable and the most advanced network (Abilene): 10Gbps backbone connecting over 215+ universities and research centers • fiber initiatives, end-to-end architecture and support technologies • organization of 70+ staff to support program areas and initiatives – we play a gluing role • Universities commit (as part of consortium) to support Internet2’s goals within campuses/regionals and also maintain connections to Internet2 backbone (Abilene)

  5. Workshops &Meetings WorkingGroups Boards &Councils SIGs BoFs Internet2: communities – 45 InternationalPartners UniversityMembers (205) CorporateMembers (50+) AffiliateMembers (30+) Shared interestsand joint effort K20Community GovernmentPartners GigaPoPs (31)

  6. Why International importance? International Applications End-to-end Performance Security motivate enable Middleware Services Networks

  7. International Partnerships • Who do we ‘partner’ with and how? • organizations of similar goals/objectives and similar constituencies • National scope; most likely operate a national R&E network • Mechanism: Memoranda of Understanding • Ensure global interoperability: • Enable global coordination and end-to-end performance in support of our communities (over high-performance infrastructures) • Enable global collaboration • in research and education providing/promoting the development of an advanced networking environment internationally • Show me the value of International !

  10. International connectivity • Internet2 backbone networks are in the United States • Primarily, our partners’ networks pay to get to the US • NSF provides some funding: • 3 international links: TransPAC (Asia/Pacific Rim), EuroLink (Europe), NAUKAnet (Russia) • 1 interconnection point: STAR TAP/Star Light (Chicago), • Other international exchange points/transit facilitated by Internet2 members and Internet2 • Seattle (Pacific Wave) - and AMPATH (Miami – partial NSF fdg) • MAN LAN (New York) • LALALAN (Los Angeles, coming up)

  11. Partners in the Americas 3 intl connections (+400 Mbps into US) • 1st Intl Partner • over +3 Gbps to US • user-controlled lightpaths 45 Mbps (Miami, Ampath) 2 x 45 Mbps (Miami, Ampath) 45 Mbps (Miami, Ampath) 45 Mbps (Miami, Ampath)

  12. AMPATH: Florida International University (Global Crossing) currently Argentina, Brasil (2), Chile and Venezuela: all at 45 Mbps Initial boost for Advanced Networking in LA Connections are point to point to Miami And now As of today, connecting to LA&C

  13. Since you asked… • Our members are increasingly dependent on access globally to resources: collaborators, data, scientific instruments. • Access to scientific instruments with specific geo-location needs: • optical telescopes: e.g., Cerro Pachon, Chile; operated by US and other countries • Radio telescopes: establishing distributed “antennae” network (e.g., US, Asia, Europe, South America) for very-long baseline interferometry (beyond experiments pushing the network, obtaining finer-grain pictures of the cosmos) • Access to/collecting geo-specific data and getting it back for analysis, visualization, sharing, prevention • Malaria data in sub-Saharan Africa • Heard of SARS? (WHO, NIH, universities) • Environmental data from the Amazon or Antartica

  14. Singular instruments: not possible for each country to “afford” for their own country: • 30-story scanning electron microscope in Japan • Large-Hedron collider at CERN in Geneva: great example of an international-funded facility where collaborators around the world (1000s) are working to conduct experiments together using these facilities • Access to people for teaching/learning • Zuckerman for a violin class • Distance education and exchanges • Multi-disciplinary real problems • telemedicine, second opinion network opportunities, border issues, environmental research, etc. • El Nino • Disaster preparedness programs • Bio-technology / genomics • for more information and details

  15. Changes in global “networking” • The US has played a key role in having very rich connectivity to the ‘world’ • many initiatives outside the US are engaging and establishing leadership roles in connecting to the world • North America and the rest of the continent – some closing of the gap… some expanding…not unlike what is happening around the world: the getting to hard-to-reach places of the world • More than ever, we need to solidify our international ties and work and learn from our partners around the world

  16. Europe – International connectivity Report on present status of international connectivity in Europe and to other continentsFrom SERENATE – Study into European Research and Education Networking As Targeted by eEurope,

  18. In the Americas and Internet2 • CLARA can help us support the work and goals of our members • Access!! • Unprecedented opportunities for LA&C and collaborations across the continent in advanced technological and scientific applications • Economies of scale and realities: • Current model may not scale in the long-term • Shared “pipes” (e.g. TransPAC model) • In the broader context, CLARA is significant b/c:

  19. The strategic importance of CLARA – cont. • A regional network may more easily enable the intra-connectivity within the most challenging places/hard to reach in LA&C • Better cohesive networking picture for American continent • CLARA symbolizes a spirit of collaboration; expertise and resources • human networks • expansion of successful models: what has worked and what may not • leading the process in changing traditional models to innovative and flexible networking models… • ability to influence and work closely with government and other agencies • broader impact on areas impacted by communication and information technologies • be ahead, prepared and work towards development of new applications with impact on society

  20. In summary • Leading-edge, high-performance network infrastructure is being put in place to support science, research, teaching and learning in countries around the world • It is key that we work with international partners • New and unique opportunities for a new level of collaborations around the world • CLARA is clearly key in LA&C and globally • US/Internet2 has and will continue to strengthen ties with CLARA and LA&C • much work still to come, but some great initial steps have begun…
