  1. Internet2: Accelerating the Development of Tomorrow’s InternetHeather BoylesDirector, International RelationsInternet2heather@internet2.edu20 February 2003Hong Kong

  2. Internet2 Mission and Goals • Develop and deploy advanced network applications and technologies, accelerating the creation of tomorrow’s Internet. • Enable new generation of applications • Create leading edge R&E network capability • Transfer technology and experience to the global production Internet

  3. University Leadership • 200 university members with commitments from their Presidents/Chancellors/Rectors • 60+ corporate members • Over 40 Affiliate Members • Government Research Agencies • Internet2/U.S. Government: separate but interdependent • Internet2 International Partner Program

  4. Internet2 Universities202 University Members, January 2003

  5. Internet2 – JUCC partnership • Internet2 – JUCC Partnership • (via Memorandum of Understanding) • In place since August 2000 • Abilene – HARNET Peering • Agreement in place since August 2000 • Connectivity in place since September 2002 • Internet2 – JUCC/HARNET users collaborations • Let this launch event provide a basis for starting new work together!

  6. International Partnerships • Ensure global interoperability • of the next generation of Internet technologies and applications • Enable global collaboration • in research and education providing/promoting the development of an advanced networking environment internationally • Build effective partnerships with organizations • similar goals/objectives • similar constituencies • Mechanism: Memoranda of • Understanding

  8. Internet2 Areas of Work • Advanced Applications • Middleware • Network Engineering • End to End Performance • Advanced Network Infrastructure • Partnerships and Outreach

  9. How Internet2 works • Universities commit: • Engineering lead: connect university to rest of Internet2 community, deploy new technologies • Applications lead: support apps development on campus • Middleware architect: work with I2MI to implement middleware infrastructure • Working groups: • Of expert/interested individuals within community • Chaired by volunteer (sometimes by staff) • Staff support • Projects/Initiatives: • Where collective resources needed • E.g. Commons Initiative, End to End Performance Initiative

  14. Internet2 Backbone Network(s) • Have had two backbones in the past: • vBNS (NSF supported, run by MCIWorldcom) • Abilene (Internet2 member supported, run by UCAID) • Abilene is current backbone network • 11 core router nodes • Moving to 10Gbps core backbone links • Connections to the backbone at 622mbps to 10Gbps • Most universities aggregate connections through “gigapops” or regional aggregator networks

  17. Advanced Network Services • Advance deployment on backbone • Incentive to deploy in gigapops, regional, campus networks • Accompany with hands-on training for campus engineers • Native IPv6 • Native multicast • Measurement tools and architectures

  18. End to End Performance Initiative • To enable the researchers, faculty, students and staff who use high performance networks to obtain optimal performance from the current infrastructure on a consistent basis. Raw Connectivity Applications Performance

  19. E2E Performance Initiative Work • Understand applications and their performance requirements • Technical Advisory Group • Provide best practices/experience for network operators • Collecting Performance Stories • Help the application user troubleshoot problems • Measurement Architecture Document • H.323 Beacon • Reflector Development • Bring all of this together for the end user • Performance Analysis Station and GUI for End-User Solution

  20. Middleware } Applications • Authentication, Identification, Authorization, Directories, Security Advanced Network Services (Distributed Network Middleware) Advanced Physical Network Infrastructure

  21. Internet2 Middleware Initiative • Focus on core middleware as infrastructure • Issues: • Interoperability • Implementation on campuses • Integrate with and support applications (upper) middleware, e.g. Grid

  22. Shibboleth • Facilitates inter-institutional sharing of web resources subject to access controls • Examples: • Students enrolled in a course across multiple universities accessing class materials and Learning Mgmt Systems • Research workgroups sharing controlled resources (the original web) • Users register only at their “home” or “origin” institution • The release of the beta code is due in August and a production code release scheduled for October

  23. Summary • Internet2 focused on: • Working together to advance the development and use of networking infrastructure, technologies and applications • AND • Putting in place the community-wide, interoperable infrastructure (at network, middleware, advanced services levels) to support development and use for research, teaching, learning
