Presentation Transcript
current situation
Current Situation
  • Network Layer-3
    • STIX in Singapore for more than 5 years
    • Starhub IX and other commercial transit providers/ISPs started operation about 2 years ago
    • Exchange traffic via circuits terminated in ISP router at Layer-3
  • Network Layer-2
    • ATM exchange points eg. 1-Net
    • Private peering via ATM PVCs
    • Presents scalability issues; lacks peering infrastructure
  • No neutral IXP at Layer-2 in Spore
singapore open ixp sox project
Singapore Open IXP (SOX) Project
  • Proposal to create the first neutral public IXP
  • Open to all ISP/IXPs (both local and foreign), IDCs, Content Providers, Business Parks, etc
  • Interconnects with non-commercial networks (SingAREN, NUSNET, MOEnet, Biopolis, etc)
  • Aims/Motivations:
    • Localising traffic
    • Lowering transit costs
    • Neutral community approach
    • Landing point for foreign IP networks
    • Testbed for IPv6, IP multicast deployments or other new IP infrastructure technology
    • Provision of Value Added Services for smaller ISPs (Akamai, Nomimum GNS, Web Proxy peering caches, etc)
sox roles
SOX Roles
  • Ensure operational quality
  • Promote bilateral and multilateral peering
  • Promote expansion of IXP members
  • Training and experience building
  • Develop and deliver new service models
asia pacific ixp infrastructure
Asia Pacific IXP Infrastructure
  • Several initiatives to develop regional IXP infrastructure (e-ASEAN task force, ITU, etc)
  • Abundant fibre capacities present in AP region with new cable networks C2C, APCN2, etc
  • To improve connectivity among commercial and R&E networks in AP region
  • Avoids US-Centric routing, for example Singapore (SingAREN) to China (CERNET) routes via Chicago, likewise for SingAREN to APAN-JP
  • Government agencies & industry need to work together to develop AP IXP infrastructure
  • Interested parties include: China MII, SOX, Ausbone
configuration
Configuration
  • Cisco Catalyst 6500 Ethernet switch
  • 10/100/1000 Mbps switch ports
  • Cisco 5505 router for ATM-Ethernet Bridging
  • Primary segment/VLAN for public peering
  • Other segments/VLANs for IPv6, and IPv4 multicast, private peering
  • Space for partners to co-locate their routing equipment
operations
Operations
  • Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (iDA) licensed Services-Based Operator (SBO)
  • Cost minimised as part of community effort to encourage peering among ISPs
  • Members only need to provide own backhaul
  • Connectivity via any FBO or leased circuit provider (SingTel and Starhub)
  • 1-Net ATM PVCs, and ATM-to-Ethernet bridging provided
sox ipv6
SOX IPv6
  • Objectives
    • To introduce operational IPv6 service, and to facilitate the connectivity and deployment of IPv6 networks in Singapore
    • To operate IPv6 exchange point, and to interconnect with other IPv6 backbones around the world
    • To learn from these early deployment exercises about the efforts/technologies needed for transiting from IPv4 to IPv6, i.e migration issues
    • To lay the foundation for IPv6 commercialisation, and to provide a testbed for IPv6 applications
singapore ipv6 history
Singapore IPv6 History
  • Started in NUS IRDU in 1996; first ASEAN country to be connected to 6Bone.
  • Allocated 6Bone address block: 3ffe:1600::/24
  • In 1999 SingAREN allocated production address block: 2001:0208::/35 (Currently, the only available IPv6 production address block in Singapore)
  • Connected to 6Tap and 6NGIX, etc.
