Starplane overview
StarPlane::Overview

  • StarPlane is a NWO funded project carried out by UvA and VU with major contributions from SURFnet and NORTEL.

  • StarPlane will use the physical infrastructure provided by SURFnet6 and the distributed supercomputer DAS-3.

  • The vision is to allow part of the photonic network infrastructure of SURFnet6 to be manipulated by Grid applications to optimize the performance of specific e-Science applications.

  • The novelty is to give flexibility directly to the applications by allowing them to choose the logical topology in real time, ultimately with subsecond lambda switching time.


Starplane goals
StarPlane::Goals

  • fast, application-specific allocation of the network resources with deterministic characteristics;

  • application-specific composition of the protocol stack that is used to control the resources;

  • low-level resource partitioning (and, hence, no interference);

  • high-level requests (whereby policies and inference are used to assist the user).


Background surfnet6
Background::SURFnet6

In The Netherlands, SURFnet connects

between 180:

- universities;

- academic hospitals;

- most polytechnics;

- research centers.

with a user base of ~750K users

It is a part of the world wide Internet.

It is a hybrid network which offers not

only regular Internet services but also

lighpaths with speeds up to 10Gbps

SURFnet6 was officially launched on

23-01-2006

Common Photonic Layer (CPL)

is photonic portion for lightpaths:

  • 6000km dark fiber network with Nortel DWDM and TDM equipments

  • 5 rings

  • initially 36 lambdas (4x9)

  • later 72 lambdas (8x9)

    Each lambda with up to 10Gbps possible throughput

Network Elements

WSS, OADM, OME...


WSS

  • WSS will allow us to redirect a selected input color to the output fiber

  • This allows us to flexibly reconfigure the network according to the application demands.

  • The key issue of StarPlane is subsecond switching, and topology reconfiguration.


How to make it work
How to make it work

  • develop the interfaces between the application and the management plane;

  • describe all resources in a ‘common language’;

  • investigate the capabilities of the various network devices related to StarPlane;

  • manipulate the network devices in control plane on demand of application;

  • integrate all possible solutions from different parties.


Current progress
Current Progress

  • App use cases:

    • Large ‘stand-alone’ file transfers

    • Large file (speedier) Stage-in/Stage-out

    • App with static bandwidth requirements

    • App with dynamic bandwidth requirements

  • WS prototype development

  • Determine APIs for app (see next)

  • Investigate HW


APIs

  • Examples:

    • query_availability(site_A_to_B, bw, s_time, diff_slot);

    • reservation(site_A_to_B, bw, s_time, duration);

    • free(res_id);


Future plan
Future Plan

  • Finish the WS development

  • Research on the GMPLS simulation box in Canada via remote access

  • Integrate AAA, DRAC...
