B is there a fit burns

B. Is There a Fit? – Burns

  • Access to national R&E networks

  • Multi-homed to Commodity, automatic fail over

  • “Dialable” capacity in 1 Mbps increments

    • Takes ~1 hour to adjust capacity

    • Summer savings

  • Intra-FRGP traffic

    • “Free”

    • Can burst to circuit capacity, e.g. 1 Gbps

    • High quality (e.g. video conferencing, multimedia work)

  • Community membership and evolution toward Next Generation Optical Networking

    • Some circuits can be shared, lowering costs and increasing capacity

    • A way for us to make progress, on NGN as a state

SCONE Meeting Dwire Hall 204


Single circuit connectivity pricing

Single-circuit Connectivity & Pricing

  • Qwest pricing looks attractive, on the surface, but:

    • Capacity is not shared

    • A site must order sufficient capacity to burst to its maximum rate, or limit functionality

  • Consider pricing for shared circuits/services

    • EC BOCES at 1 Gbps through SCONE, Commodity only

      • EC BOCES includes 17 rural school districts

      • SCONE total aggregate connectivity at 30 Mbps

      • We advertised $100-$150/Mbps-mo (FRGP ‘raw’ pricing)

      • Instead, via aggregation, EC BOCES pricing averages closer to $15/Mbps-mo – see slide on next page

  • UPOP pricing should be examined in this light

Backbone network baily niccoli

Backbone Network–Baily, Niccoli

  • SCONE overview

  • Level3 back-up circuit

  • Separate VLANs for transport

  • Secondary routing for redundancy

  • Management and operations

SCONE Meeting Dwire Hall 204


Scone overview

SCONE Overview

  • Southern Colorado Optical Network for Education

  • Partnership between CDOT and Higher Ed

  • CDOT provided right of way, infrastructure including fiber

  • Higher Ed provided design, labor (splicing), and $50K

  • Approximately $70K in equipment was funded by the participants

Basic architecture

Basic Architecture

  • Gigabit Ethernet from Denver to Pueblo

  • Multiple VLANs, one for each site

    • Most efficient use of fiber

    • Very cost effective

  • Pueblo-Denver Backup circuit via Level3

    • Metro Ethernet Service

    • Currently capped at 100 Mbps

    • Automatic Fail-over


Management and operations

Management and Operations

  • Monitored and Managed by CSU NOC

    • Most end sites do their own monitoring/alerting

  • “Best effort” support

  • Rely upon “local” staff in some situations

    • Remote hands support, diagnostics, equipment swaps

  • Web page maintained at CSU

    • Contacts, Diagrams, Changes, Outages


Possible topology jeff custard

Possible Topology – Jeff Custard

  • Benefits of FRGP participation: aggregation, free peering, services, I2 access, ...

  • Use SCONE for transport across the LATA

  • Explore local connection options

  • QMOE across the LATA

  • UPOP place Ethernet switches for aggregation at UCCS and CSU-P

SCONE Meeting Dwire Hall 204


Secom jon saunders

SECOM – Jon Saunders

  • Use of SECOM fiber span to L3 service?

  • Peering with the FRGP

  • Possible interconnect with VNETS at Cheyenne Wells

  • Possible future collaboration for SCONE and SECOM for back-up services
