Presentation Transcript

  1. David R. Richardson, Mgr. Network Engineering University of Washington Pacific Rim Networking Meeting Honolulu, Hawaii February 21-22, 2002

  2. Pacific Northwest Gigapop The Pacific Northwest Gigapop is the PNW’s access point to Internet2, high performance U.S. Federal Networks, and high speed commodity Internet R&D testbed inviting national and international experimentation with advanced Internet-based applications Located in Seattle, Washington USA

  3. Pacific Northwest Gigapop System

  4. Support of Advanced Applications • Microsoft Land Speed Record • UW Internet HDTV • Measurement projects (GigaTCP, AMP, Surveyor…) • ISIe/Tektronix Uncompressed HDTV • ResearchChannel • …

  5. Pacific Wave Pacific Wave is a service of the Pacific Northwest Gigapop. • High speed peering point for regional and international networks • Complement of Abilene and CA*net3 International Transit Network services • Open peering point for participant-managed bilateral peerings

  6. Pacific Wave Architecture An ATM free zone! Based on a pair of Gigabit Ethernet switches providing two subnets Abilene Switch PNW Router CA*net3 . . . Switch PNW Router AARNet

  7. Abilene Switch PNW Router CA*net3 . . . Switch PNW Router AARNet Peering at Pacific Wave • Peer with the Pacific Northwest Gigapop • Peer with Abilene, CA*net3 and receive their ITN service to reach other networks • Peer with other Pacific Wave participants

  8. Advantages of Pacific Wave • Close to major Pacific cable landing sites • Located in incumbent telecommunications carrier grade hotel • easy access to co-lo services • easy access to fiber-meet-me-room • easy access to full West Coast fiber grid • Gigabit Ethernet is high speed, low cost, low maintenance • No PNWGP staff involvement required to setup your peerings; no ATM PVC’s or mandated routing policy • Switches implement PIM-SM snooping for increased multicast efficiency

  9. Advantages of Pacific Wave (cont.) • 24 x 7 Network Operations Center • Redundant environmentals (DC, HVAC) • PNWGP Commodity Internet Services • Engineered and delivered via four diverse tier-one vendors • Vendors chosen after exhaustive review of capacity, support, peering, etc. • Diverse geographic connectivity for commodity services • 1.45Gbps throughput (under expansion)

  10. Networks at Pacific Wave: Feb. 2002 • AARNet – Australian Academic & Research Network • Abilene Network/Internet2 • ATT Broadband Internet • CA*net3/CANARIE • DREN – Defense Research and Engineering Network • ESNet – Energy Sciences Network • Microsoft Corporation • Pacific Northwest Gigapop • Siemens Medical – Pointshare • TANET2 – Taiwan Research Network • TransPAC – Asia Pacific Academic Networks (APAN)

  11. _____________________________________ Microsoft Research NOAA Boeing Research Pacific Northwest National Laboratory Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Arctic Region Supercomputing Center Plus many major research groups such as Universities of Washington, Alaska, Idaho, and Montana, and Portland Research Education Network

  12. Futures • 2002: Fiber facility expansion along U.S. Pacific Coast—Pacific LightRail • 2002: Support 10GbE connections • Additional Peering Partners • PacRim research & education groups • U.S. Federal agencies • major corporate entities (technology, healthcare, biotechnology) • 2002/2003: Expansion of Commodity Internet Services to combined 4Gbps
