disclaimers
Disclaimers
  • My views alone, not Internet2’s
  • Not a network engineer
  • Based largely on Internet2 community experience
  • No single solution
why academia is relevant
Why academia is relevant
  • “Discovered” the Web, didn’t they?
  • Demanding users and applications
  • Long-term view
  • Technical foundation
  • Can provide large-scale proof of concept
    • Enterprise
    • Market
lesson 1 applications matter
Lesson 1: applications matter
  • Radical increases in bandwidth=new kinds of applications
  • New kinds of applications provide new business opportunities
  • 100Mbps seems to be an inflection point
  • End-to-end performance is crucial
  • Future applications will require Gbps
lesson 2 fiber deployment gaining momentum
Lesson 2: fiber deployment gaining momentum
  • Long haul fiber optic cable “glut”
  • Regional dark or dim fiber gaining
    • I-Light (Indiana)
    • I-WIRE (Chicago)
    • CENIC ONI (California)
  • Campuses turning to fiber
    • George Washington University (and others)
    • SCinet
lesson 3 networking realities
Lesson 3: networking realities
  • LANs are ahead of the curve
  • OEO is expensive
  • DWDM overwhelms Moore’s Law
  • Evolution of optical switching will be critical
lesson 4 things change
Lesson 4: things change
  • Applications requirements uncertain
  • Control of fiber (or lambdas) allows flexibility
  • Lamba switching on the horizon
  • So, waiting may (seem to) pay off
