What are big school solutions l.jpg
What are “Big School Solutions?” Solutions to Small School Problems

  • Internet2/NLR

  • Shibboleth

  • iTunesU

  • MPLS

  • IPv6

  • Cloud Computing

3


How does this fit together l.jpg
How Does This Fit Together? Solutions to Small School Problems

  • The problems aren’t necessarily different or unique to smaller schools

  • Small schools can be more agile and able to implement solutions campus-wide

  • Resources are available to help (Large developer community, conferences, CAMPs, etc)

Internet2 nlr l.jpg
Internet2/NLR Solutions to Small School Problems

  • High-Speed research networks

  • Internet2 - A not-for-profit advanced networking consortium that leverages its high-performance network and worldwide partnerships to support and enhance the educational and research missions of its members.

  • NLR - Ultra high-performance network infrastructure that makes possible many of the world’s most demanding research projects.

  • I2 Only Applications (Remote instrumentation, Videoconferencing)

  • NLR for Telepresence

6


Shibboleth l.jpg
Shibboleth Solutions to Small School Problems

  • Shibboleth - A standards based, open source software package for web single sign-on across or within organizational boundaries.

  • Federated Identity Management (FIdM) - Arrangements made among multiple organizations that lets subscribers use their institutional identification credentials to obtain access to applications outside their institution but within the Federation (InCommon, eAuth)

7


Itunesu l.jpg
iTunesU Solutions to Small School Problems

  • iTunesU - A section of Apple’s iTunes Store designed for higher education where institutional content, course work, or other multimedia materials may be stored and disseminated within the framework of iTunes.

  • Can use Shibboleth

  • Can be used to compliment Course Management System

8


Slide9 l.jpg
MPLS Solutions to Small School Problems

  • MPLS - Multi-Protocol Label Switching

  • Layer 3 Virtualization creates highly secure virtual networks within one physical infrastructure

  • Easier to manage than Layer 2 Virtualization (VLANs)

  • Scales better (smaller broadcast domains)

  • Cost savings

  • VoIP

9


Slide10 l.jpg
IPv6 Solutions to Small School Problems

  • IPv6 - Next-generation Internet Protocol version designed as the successor to IPv4.

  • New IP addressing scheme

  • Expanded allocation blocks (more addresses available)

  • More secure (IPSec)

  • Multicast

  • Jumbograms

10


Cloud computing l.jpg
Cloud Computing Solutions to Small School Problems

  • Cloud Computing - Environment where dynamically scalable and often virtualized resources are provided as a service over the Internet

  • Obscures technology and infrastructure that supports the cloud, enabling end users to focus on applications

  • Not just for CS any more

Security l.jpg
Security Solutions to Small School Problems

  • MPLS for network virtualization

    • Separation of devices and users

    • Network Admission Control

    • Regulatory Compliance (PCI, HIPPA, CALEA, etc)

  • Shibboleth

    • Access to third party apps using institutional credentials

    • Single Sign-On

13


Teaching and learning l.jpg
Teaching and Learning Solutions to Small School Problems

  • Internet2/NLR

    • Access to resources/applications

  • iTunesU

    • Bowdoin, Penn State

    • Offload multimedia content from CMS

14


Infrastructure cyberinfrastructure l.jpg
Infrastructure/Cyberinfrastructure Solutions to Small School Problems

  • Cloud Computing

    • Virtualization lowers cooling demands, power requirements

    • Provisioning new services easier

    • Saves money

  • IPv6

    • It is coming, I promise!

    • v6-only services, no more v4?

15


Identity management l.jpg
Identity Management Solutions to Small School Problems

  • Shibboleth

    • Policies and Procedures

    • InCommon and eAuth LoA (Level of Assurance)

    • Providing services to other schools (collaboration)

16


Disaster recovery l.jpg
Disaster Recovery Solutions to Small School Problems

  • Clustering and Cloud Computing

    • Automatic failover

    • Hardware independence

  • MPLS

    • Network failures converge faster (BGP)

    • Broadcast domains limited

17


Web systems l.jpg
Web Systems Solutions to Small School Problems

  • Cloud Computing

    • Cloud platform very effective to deliver web applications

  • Shibboleth

    • Tailor made for web application authentication
