b is there a fit burns
B. Is There a Fit? – Burns
  • Access to national R&E networks
  • Multi-homed to Commodity, automatic fail over
  • “Dialable” capacity in 1 Mbps increments
    • Takes ~1 hour to adjust capacity
    • Summer savings
  • Intra-FRGP traffic
    • “Free”
    • Can burst to circuit capacity, e.g. 1 Gbps
    • High quality (e.g. video conferencing, multimedia work)
  • Community membership and evolution toward Next Generation Optical Networking
    • Some circuits can be shared, lowering costs and increasing capacity
    • A way for us to make progress, on NGN as a state

single circuit connectivity pricing
Single-circuit Connectivity & Pricing
  • Qwest pricing looks attractive, on the surface, but:
    • Capacity is not shared
    • A site must order sufficient capacity to burst to its maximum rate, or limit functionality
  • Consider pricing for shared circuits/services
    • EC BOCES at 1 Gbps through SCONE, Commodity only
      • EC BOCES includes 17 rural school districts
      • SCONE total aggregate connectivity at 30 Mbps
      • We advertised $100-$150/Mbps-mo (FRGP ‘raw’ pricing)
      • Instead, via aggregation, EC BOCES pricing averages closer to $15/Mbps-mo – see slide on next page
  • UPOP pricing should be examined in this light

basic architecture
Basic Architecture
  • Gigabit Ethernet from Denver to Pueblo
  • Multiple VLANs, one for each site
    • Most efficient use of fiber
    • Very cost effective
  • Pueblo-Denver Backup circuit via Level3
    • Metro Ethernet Service
    • Currently capped at 100 Mbps
    • Automatic Fail-over
management and operations
Management and Operations
  • Monitored and Managed by CSU NOC
    • Most end sites do their own monitoring/alerting
  • “Best effort” support
  • Rely upon “local” staff in some situations
    • Remote hands support, diagnostics, equipment swaps
  • Web page maintained at CSU
    • Contacts, Diagrams, Changes, Outages
possible topology jeff custard
Possible Topology – Jeff Custard
  • Benefits of FRGP participation: aggregation, free peering, services, I2 access, ...
  • Use SCONE for transport across the LATA
  • Explore local connection options
  • QMOE across the LATA
  • UPOP place Ethernet switches for aggregation at UCCS and CSU-P

SECOM – Jon Saunders
  • Use of SECOM fiber span to L3 service?
  • Peering with the FRGP
  • Possible interconnect with VNETS at Cheyenne Wells
  • Possible future collaboration for SCONE and SECOM for back-up services
