Presentation Transcript

  1. C-Wave Overview Kevin McGrattan Consulting System Engineer January 22, 2008 kmcgratt@cisco.com

  2. Agenda • Background & Goals • What is C-Wave? • Topology and Connections • Services • Projects and Applications • C-Wave Partners

  3. Background • High Performance Facilities Based R&E Networks Operational • NLR, Internet2, Regional Networks • Key concept is network control at multiple layers • Opportunities to explore new areas of networking and applications research. • Ongoing challenge: “How do you connect researchers to these resources in a reasonable and flexible manner based on industry-researcher partnerships?” • One such resource that meets these requirements is C-Wave

  4. C-Wave Goals • Explore new areas of networking and applications research. • Connect researchers to networks and applications in a reasonable and flexible manner based on industry-researcher partnerships. • Leverage the multiple high performance R&E networks that have been funded and deployed. • Flexible, Opportunistic, Lightweight

  5. What is C-Wave? • Access to 10G Waves (Layer-1 p2p) • Per project allocation • Switched Network • 10GE backbone links • Flexible Architecture with MPLS Backbone • User Connectivity Qualification Based on • Project requirements (BW & time frame) • Research merit • Partnership opportunity • (Switched Network is preferred over dedicated waves) • Simple Operational Model

  6. What C-Wave isn’t… • Not for permanent deployments • Prototype, experiment, research • Not a highly connected network • No peering with NLR, Internet2, commodity, etc. • Not designed for production applications • Not Designed for critical, non-stop applications • Redundant trunks and power only • No 24 x 7 x 365 support • …but the cost/benefit ratio is appealing

  9. C-Wave Capabilities & Services • Protocols • ISIS • MPLS • iBGP • Services • EoMPLS p2p • Statically routed IP • L3 VPN (special case) • Switched layer 2 (minimal, special case upon request) • Preferred Connection • GE or 10GE 802.1q Trunk

  10. Projects and Users • CineGrid • TransLight • Holland Festival • Internet2 Meeting Demonstration at Cal IT2 • SC’07 • CaveWave @ SC’07 • ALS Research (UMC-Utrecht to UCLA) • HIPERSTORE • EnLIGHTened • UltraLight • Center for Analysis and Prediction of Storms (CAPS) Hazardous Weather Testbed (HWT) Spring Experiment • LSU/LONI • Internally Sponsored Research Programs Under Discussion

  11. C-Wave Partners • Principal partner: National LambdaRail • Provides wave transport and other services for the C-wave core • Other partners include CENIC, PNWGP, Cal IT2, iCAIR, EVL and StarLight • Provide access waves, collocation facilities, and technical assistance • We seek to extend such partnerships with other R&E entities as we expand this program
