  1. Rationale for GLIFNovember 2004

  2. CA*net 4 Update • Network is now 3 x 10Gbps wavelengths • Cost of wavelengths dropping dramatically • 3rd wavelength operational in June • Support for e2e lightpaths for high end applications • most top research institutions interested • E.g. 10GbE CWDM to TRIUMF on UBC campus • Future growth likely for international transit lightpaths • Korea, Taiwan, Ireland and others have purchased UCLP lightpaths across CA*net4 • In negotiation with other networks • UCLP being deployed on Internet2, TANet2, KREOnet, i2CAT

  3. CA*net 4 is NOT an optical switched network • CANARIE has no interest in optical experiments • E.g. HOPI, GMPLS, etc • There are few applications that need 10 Gbps • There are few applications that require 2 Ghz + 2 Gbytes memory on the PC • Cost of bandwidth is dramatically dropping • Cost of wavelengths now affordable by individual researchers • CAVE*net good example • CA*net 4 is made up of many parallel application empowered or customer empowered specific networks eg: • Computer back planes (Westgrid) • High energy physics network • The CA*net 4 tries to answer the question how can these autonomous network islands interconnect to each other without a central organization like telco, CANARIE or Internet 2

  4. UCLP: Objectives • Network management • integrate wavelengths and fiber from different suppliers • integrate within network management domain • offer VPNs to users • Create discipline specific re-configurable IP networks • Multi-homed network which bypasses firewalls with direct connect to servers and routers • User controlled traffic engineering • Active replacement for Sockeye and Route Science • Alternative to MPLS

  5. Other national networks ORAN ORAN ORAN ORAN Regional National IP Network University Today’s hierarchical IP network

  6. ORAN ORAN ORAN ORAN Regional Tomorrow’s peer to peer IP network World World Anybody can peer with anybody National IP Network World University Server World

  7. Creation of application VPNs University Dept High Energy Physics Network CERN Commodity Internet Research Network University University Bio-informatics Network University University eVLBI Network

  8. NLR 2 partner acquires a separate wavelength between Seattle and Chicago and wants to manage it as part of its network including add/drop, routing, partition etc NLR Condominium lambda network UCLP intended for projects like National LambdaRail

  9. UCLP: Applications 1 • International Transit • Korea, Ireland, Taiwan layer 1 transit • Other countries under negotiation • ORANs • Layer 1 restoral and protections paths • BCnet, ORANO and RISQ to date • Distributed back planes between HPC Grid centers • Westgrid (1 GbE moving to 10 GbE) • AceNet to come • Distributed Single Mount file systems • Yotta, Yotta - SGI • Needs consistent performance and throughput • Frequent topology changes to meet needs of specific applications

  10. UCLP: Applications 2 • ATLAS Canada • 980 Gbytes FCAL data once a month from CERN to Carleton U, UoAlberta, UoArizona, etc • Will significantly increase to Terabytes when production runs start • Would take over 80 days on IP R&E network • CERN Low level trigger data to UoAlberta • Initially streaming data rates 1 Gbps moving to 10Gbps later in the year • Canadian virtual observatory • .5 Tbyte per day to UoToronto and UoHawaii • 250 Mbps continuous streaming from CCD devices • Canada Light Source Synchrotron – remote streaming of data acquisition to UoAlberta • 2 to 5 Gbps continuously
