  1. International Task Force Meeting 6 May 2002 Australian Update and Overview George McLaughlin

  2. AARNet – Australia’s Academic & Research Network • Has PoPs in each of Australia’s State and Territory Capital Cities (8 in all) • Provides commodity as well as R&E connections to member universities and research bodies • Does not receive Australian Govt Funding for its operations – ie is fully user-pays • Is required to fully comply with the Australian telecommunications regulatory regime – holds a carrier licence

  3. AARNet Backbone Darwin Brisbane Adelaide Perth Canberra Sydney Melbourne Hobart

  4. AARNet Pty Ltd (APL) • Not-for-profit company limited by shares • Shareholders are the universities and CSIRO • Shareholders are also clients • R&E network expansion funded from a surcharge on commodity traffic

  5. APL Structure Shareholders - Members APL Board AARNet Advisory Committee Executive Director Business Unit Technical Working Parties Development Unit Production Unit Project Implementation Groups Members & Clients

  6. International Research and Education Networks • AARNet has deployed it’s own capacity to the advanced networks of North America, and later to the Asia Pacific – from these also to Europe and the rest of the world • Is now peering directly peer directly at PacificWave with: • Abilene • CA*Net3 • TransPac • TANet • ESNet • DREN • Participates in ITN • Future Plans

  7. AARNet’s International ConnectionsCurrent and Planned CANet APAN Seattle StarTap Japan Europe Abilene GEANT SLO Hawaii Taiwan South America Singapore PNG International Transit Network South Asia Middle East Europe Fiji AARNet Sydney Global GRID Forum Perth New Zealand

  8. Technology deployment • End-to-end Performance Measurement and Monitoring • AARNet has had extensive passive measurement/monitoring for some time, now participating in NLANR AMP • Multicast • implemented, multicast peering with Abilene, wider distribution within AARNet and GrangeNet next – facilitated Australia’s participation in SC2001 • IPv6 – rollout in next few months • Voice-over-IP • National deployment already in place, switching 16,000 calls per day – wide distribution of H323 gatekeepers within Australia, QoS deployed, toll quality – also working on SIP • Video-over-IP • Initial H323 deployment successful, scaling to national rollout – will work with VideNet, I2 Commons, SurfNet

  9. New Carrier Services AARNet holds a carrier licence and this has the potential to provide other opportunities resulting from nominated carrier declarations and inter carrier agreements • Has commissioned a fibre-layer to lay new ducts and fibre, owned by AARNet • Acts as nominated carrier on behalf of Members • Can gain access to ducts and towers of other carriers • Working with power utililities and rail authorities to explore opportunities (use of fibre and rights of way) • Intercarrier agreements and wholesale costs

  10. Australian Advanced Networks Program • Three programs funded by Aust Govt– total grants $AU37million, leveraged funding ~$AU100million • GrangeNet – consortium with AARNet as lead agency also APAC, DSTC, Powertel and Cisco • 2x2.5Gbps wavelengths between Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne based on Cisco DWDM, 12410 and 7600 series routers, GbE tails, advanced communication and grid services, associated middleware to support a variety of communities of users • CeNTIE • network research backbone Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth (10Gbps lambda), local fibre in Sydney and Perth • MNet – Focus on advanced wireless technologies

  11. GrangeNet: GRid And Next GEneration Network Supported by the Australian Federal Government’s BITS Advanced Networks Program

  12. GrangeNet Aims • Develop next generation of communications networks and services (‘AARNet3-4’) • Provide infrastructure to integrate high-performance computing and visualisation systems (‘APAC Grid’) • Support distributed ‘User Communities’with demanding applications • Promote cooperation between industry and research organisations • Facilitate business development based on advanced communications products and services

  18. GrangeNet Plans for Grid Services • Distributed Computing • Install Globus on major computing facilities • Demonstrate distributed computing applications • Collaborative Visualisation • Connect several Virtual Reality systems • engineering design of manufactured products • bio-molecular modelling and visualisation • Cooperative Environments • Install Access Grid nodes in 4 cities • first one at Sydney VisLab for SC Global • Digital Libraries • Provide access to large-scale international datasets • bio-informatics, astronomy, earthquakes, earth observation • Remote Instruments • Connect major electron microscope facilities • major national research facility

  19. User Communities • News and Media Distribution (Education) • Computational Chemistry and Biology • Computational Physics • High-Energy Physics • Astronomy and Astrophysics • Bio-informatics • Environmental Modelling • On-line Health • Education and Training • Film and Media • Manufacturing

  20. International Science Collaborations • Global Grid and AP Grid Forums • Health applications • Astronomy • Peer-to-Peer computing • Access Grids • Location independence and need to access resources and collaborate with others elsewhere in the world

  21. Summary • An Australian backbone in 2002 • multi-Gigabit DWDM network • increased capacity to international R&E networks • GrangeNet will develop advanced communications and grid services for a range of user communities • GrangeNet will strengthen international collaboration on R&E networks
