The journey ahead
The Journey Ahead

  • Starting Point

  • Direction

  • Vehicle

  • Destination


Ten 155 service
TEN-155 Service

  • Basic IP service

    • 19 NRENs (inc. NORDUnet)

    • access capacities in range

      • 10 Mbit/s (IE, LU)

      • 622 Mbit/s (DE, NL)

  • MBS (Managed Bandwidth Service)

    • ATM-based

    • guaranteed capacity

      • typically used for demonstrations

    • VPN capability

      • testing of new technology (native multicast, diffserv, MPLS, IPv6)


The direction
The Direction

  • Expanded geographic coverage

    • All FP5 countries

  • Connectivity to other world regions

  • Much higher capacities

    • Target: 2.5 Gbit/s in 8 locations in 2001

    • Tens (or hundreds) of Gbit/s within 4 years

  • Improved resilience

  • End-to-end QoS


Capacity requirements
Capacity Requirements

  • US demonstrations

    • Research Channel HDTV: 5 streams of 200 Mbit/s

    • Internet2 Land Speed Record: 830 Mbit/s

    • Internet2 LSR, 2nd edition: 30 Oct 00

  • Development of Grid technologies and services

    • distributed, high speed computation with large data sets

    • application areas include: nuclear physics, earth observation, meteorology, multi-disciplinary design, computational chemistry, drug discovery, finance engineering, business decisions, multimedia


Qos the infinite bandwidth debate
QoS: the “Infinite Bandwidth” Debate

  • Over-provision of bandwidth

    • is simple

    • goes a long way towards meeting QoS needs

    • is adequate in the short term, but

  • From the Abilene QoS Planning Group:

    • congestion on part of end-to-end path

    • prepare for congestion (“risks . . victim of . . success”)

    • “blaze a trail . . . exemplary QoS architecture”

  • Distributed computing services, including grids, need predictable QoS


The vehicle
The Vehicle

  • Géant - the network service to succeed TEN-155

  • GN1 - EC project under FP5/IST

    • Four year contract with 25 NRENs plus DANTE

    • effective 1 Nov 00

    • 80 Meuro committed by EC

    • further funding available (?), eg for US

    • contract signature Oct 00 (?)


G ant services
Géant Services

  • Basic IP service

    • including connection to research networks in other regions

  • Native multicast

  • Premium IP service

  • Guaranteed capacity ) end-to-end, with

  • Virtual private networks) NREN involvement

  • New services

    • IPv6

    • support (not ATM) for “disruptive” testing


Tests piloting
Tests/Piloting

  • Year 1 commitment

    • premium IP

    • MPLS/VPN

    • multicast improvement

    • IPv6

    • traffic measurement

  • Annual update of “technology roadmap”


G ant technology
Géant Technology

  • “Vision”

    • ideal is dedicated fibre + DWDM, but

    • is it available (throughout Europe)?

    • is it ready (for operational service)?

    • is it affordable? (equipment costs?)

  • Tender

    • ITT issued 7 Jul 00 to 88 organisations (inc. 12 NRENs)

    • “open” specification (min 2.5G, target 8 locations)

  • Timetable

    • deadline for tenders is 29 Sep 00

    • TEN-155 contracts continue till 30 Nov 01

    • 1/2/3/4 year commitment?


The destination
The Destination

  • The most advanced possible networking support for the research and education community throughout Europe

  • A high quality network service to which other world regions wish to connect.
