  1. Abilene Update SC'99 :: Portland :: 17-Nov-99

  2. Outline • Goals • Architecture • Current Status • NGI Peering • International Peering • Multicast

  3. Goals • Support very high data-rates • OC-48 in phase 1 • Minimize speed-of-light delay • Provide Sonet access at over 100 Qwest PoPs • Support advanced IP functionality such as multicast and QoS • Support advanced applications!

  4. Core Architecture • Router Nodes • About 10-15, located at Qwest PoPs • Cisco 12008 routers • Out-of-band access, Surveyor • Interior Circuits • Qwest OC-48 and OC-12 Sonet • Simple POS between Router Nodes

  5. Abilene Core :: Nov-1999 Seattle New York Cleveland Indianapolis Sacramento Denver Denver Kansas City Los Angeles Atlanta Houston

  6. Abilene Core :: spring 2000 Seattle New York Cleveland Indianapolis Sacramento Washington Denver Denver Kansas City Los Angeles Atlanta Houston

  7. Access Architecture • Access Circuit: site to Router Node • OC-3, OC-12 now; OC-48 possible • IP/Sonet or IP/ATM framing • Access Node: any Qwest Sonet PoP • Backhaul from Access Node to Router Node viewed as part of Abilene • Local from site to Access Node varies

  8. Abilene Connections :: Nov-1999

  9. Abilene Connections :: now and in process

  10. Summary of Connections • Connections • 28 now • 9 on the way • Participants • 102 now • 27 on the way

  11. The Abilene Team • Qwest Communications • Nortel • Cisco • Indiana University (NOC) • MCNC and OARnet (ITEC) • UCAID

  12. NGI Peering • Internet2 and federal NGI networks peer at a set of NGI exchanges, or NGIXes • Chicago (same ATM switch as StarTAP) • NASA Ames • Univ Maryland College Park, near DC • Other ad hoc connection points also exist

  14. Specific Abilene NGI Peering • vBNS: Chicago and Washington • NREN: Ames and Chicago • NISN: Chicago • DREN: Ames and Chicago • ESnet: Berkeley, Chicago, Atlanta • Theme: reduce latency in univ-lab paths

  15. International Peering • Focused on non-US advanced R/E networks • Supports StarTAP exchange point • But also uses other peering locations to minimize: • latency • cost burden for peer

  18. Joint Techs Meeting • Miami, Florida, 6-8 December 1999 • Joint project of: • Internet2 • NLANR • Advanced networking technology and infrastructure consultation • www.internet2.edu/html/dec99miami.html

  19. Goals for SC'00 • Increase support for native multicast • Increase experience with high-speed wide-area TCP • Web100 project beginning • Make OC-12 (600 Mb/s) performance ordinary

  20. The Bottom Line for SC'99 • The aggressive combination of high-speed computing and high-speed networking is exactly why Internet2 infrastucture, including Abilene, have been built • We welcome the challenge to support this!
