the need for a global research and education network
The Need for a Global Research and Education Network
  • A global R&E network is required to support true global cyberinfrastructure which will underpin global e-science
  • However international connections very slow compared with R&E network backbone speeds
  • Global connection effort not well-coordinated – dominated by bilateral thinking
requirements for a global r e network
Requirements for a Global R&E Network
  • Provides a single global backbone inter-connecting global network access points (GNAPs) that provide peering within a country or region
  • Provides global backbone speeds comparable to those of the R&E networks, i.e. OC192 in 2002
  • Allows coordinated global advanced service deployment (e.g. QoS, IPv6, multicast)
  • Is based on stable carrier infrastructure or leased or owned fiber or wavelengths.
  • Is persistent based on long-term agreements with carriers, router vendors and optical transmission equipment vendors
  • Is scalable – e.g. OC768 by 2004, multiple wavelengths running striped OC768 by 2005, terabit/sec transmission by 2006
  • Allow GNAPs to connect at OC48 and above. To scale up as backbone speeds scale up
  • Provides a production service with 24x7x365 management through a global NOC

Global Terabit Research Network (GTRN)
  • Announced 18 February 2002 as a production service
  • A partnership to establish a true world-wide next generation Internet to interconnect national and multinational high speed R&E networks as a critical part of global cyberinfrastructure
  • Involves NREN-Consortium/Dante in Europe & Internet2, Indiana University, CANARIE, StarTAP/Starlight & Pacific Wave in the United States & Canada
  • Currently connects the major R&E networks in Europe and North America
  • Regionally based (initially Europe & North America; soon Asia Pacific,… )
the global terabit research network
The Global Terabit Research Network
  • Initially 2 x OC-48 unprotected POS Trans-Atlantic circuits
  • Trans North American capacity to Seattle (Pacific Wave) via Chicago (StarLight) provided by tunnelling over Abilene
  • Run as a single AS (AS21230)
  • Second set of Trans-Atlantic OC-48s planned
  • A set of 2 x OC12s to connect the Asia Pacific to the GTRN
  • Governed and managed internationally
  • NOC services across the globe
  • www.gtren.net

Global Terabit Research Network (con’t)
  • Additions underway
    • GTRN AS at STAR TAP/Starlight
    • GTRN AS at Pacific Northwest GigaPop (PNG)
    • Tunneled capacity across Abilene to connect these points
    • Resulting GTRN topology: Europe, North America; Asia Pacific expected soon
    • Participation in New York layer two exchange point (Manhattan Landing)
a global partnership
A Global Partnership
  • Initial Planning Group
    • Fernando Liello (European NREN Consortium)
    • Dai Davies (DANTE)
    • Michael A. McRobbie (Indiana University)
    • Steven Wallace (Indiana University)
    • Doug van Houweling (Internet2)
    • Heather Boyles (Internet2)
  • Participating and Supporting Individuals (Organizations)
    • Bill St. Arnaud (CANARIE/CAnet*3)
    • Tom DeFanti (STAR TAP/Starlight)
    • Ron Johnson (Pacific Wave)
future gtrn expansion activities
Future GTRN Expansion & Activities
  • Further deployment of GNAPs (e.g. in the Asia Pacific)
  • Extension to the Latin Americas via AMPATH
  • More formal global NOC services (e.g. GTRN weather map, seamless trouble reporting, etc.)
  • Formal GTRN inauguration in Brussels May 21
