GÉANT & NRENConnectivity & Network Services

  • 40 European Countries
  • Dark Fibre + DWDM
  • Hybrid network:
    • IP Packet routedIPv6, multicast, VPN
    • Point-to-point Circuitstypically 1Gbit/s
    • Dedicated LambdasFull 10Gbit/s
  • BoD
  • Network monitoring
  • Security
  • Mobility

the procurement trail
The procurement trail
  • Started at the beginning of 2010 with an RFI exercise (6 months)
  • Launched a formal procurement process (Competitive Dialogue) at the end of 2010 in 3 lots
  • Dialogue ran throughout 2011
  • Examined different approaches to:
    • “100G-optimised” transmission…
    • …that didn’t hinder continued flexible deployment of 10G services [lot 1]
    • “Packet transport” solutions for switching layer [lot 2]
    • Converged (“POTS”) solutions [lot 3]
  • Refined requirements during dialogue
  • Solicited another round of solutions (without lot 3)
  • Shortlisted
  • Hands-on (lab testing) & more dialogue
  • ITT issued at end of 2011
approach to technology choices
Approach to technology choices
  • Technology agnostic approach to transmission
    • e.g. did not specify DCM-based or DCM-free, ROADM specifics, etc
    • BUT service & operational feature prescriptions were made, e.g.
      • “optimisation” for delivery of 100G;
      • in final ITT, suppliers mandated to include flexible, zero-touch provisioning of 10G “lambdas” (even if solution not supporting native 10G lambdas)
      • effectively meant include OTN switching
  • “Classical MPLS” approach to switching (lot 2) was mandated
    • Alternatives (MPLS-TP, PBB-TE) did not look sufficiently convincing during dialogue
  • Lot 3 dropped
    • Converged/integrated (“POTS”) solutions did not appear sufficiently convincing during dialogue
and the winner s are
And the winner(s) are…

… sorry can’t say right now

But …
  • Starting Q2 2012
  • GEANT will roll-out its newest network providing 100s of Terabits of switching capacity across Europe…
  • …by creating a Hybrid infrastructure that is:
    • …Multi Domain with a dense Pan European footprint
    • …with aggregated Peta Bit Class switching and…
    • …with Multi Tera Bit nodes and…
    • …with hundreds of Giga Bit transmission and…
    • …with a Global reach to all regions in the World.

summary
Summary

Clear drivers to upgrade GÉANT infrastructure now to move it Towards Terabits

Lengthy procurement process is now almost complete

This means 1x100G this year (plus another ~100G’s worth of 10Gs) in production on many of the main trunks

Growth thereafter… expect to keep up the ~50% pa

Terabit ETA around 2016

Also expect to be field trialing 400G and TB transmission within similar time frames (research network remit)…

And endeavour to support the more niche applications… e.g. “photonic services”

Time scales: Start very soon – Rollout: June – May 2013
