The GridPP “Network Forward Look” document is being revised. This review will scope “readiness” of UK sites. Pete Clarke is the editor.
Next funding round has started for the period 2015 – 2018 with the GridPP5 bid being developed. The outcome of course is not yet known.
UK Tier 1 currently has internal data flows to 100G with flows to the wide area often exceeding 10G for many hours. Tier 1 connects to the RAL Core network with resilient 40G.
In the period to 2018, 100G will be required within the RAL Core network and beyond into Janet. This is technically achievable now.
Currently the OPN connects with 2*10G and to 2018 this is projected to double, and the bid reflects this requirement
All of this (and more) in a climate of economic austerity
