2 What is PennREN Capital Budget - $128,958,031 – Federal Stimulus Funds - $99,660,678 – Matching Funds - $29,297,353 Outside Plant Infrastructure Constructed for PennREN – 48 Stands of NZD Fiber optic Cable – 1700± Route Miles – Outsourced Fiber Maintenance 13 Optical Regeneration Service Nodes 56 Service Distribution Access Nodes a high-speed, state-wide, research & education serving healthcare, K-20 and the public good

3 Project Route Total PennREN Fiber route is estimated at 1,613 miles. The route consists of the following; 1,086 miles of new aerial construction. 486 miles of aerial overlash. 14 miles of new underground construction. 27 miles of leased underground conduit. Network Backbone Engineering is 95% complete overall. 3

17 On-Net: Delivery Internet R&E Internet Access Node Access Nodes

18 Off-Net: Delivery Internet R&E Internet Member Off-Net First/Last Mile Commercial Co-Lo CX Carrier Private NNI

19 PennREN EPC – Ethernet Port Connection Service Customer Router Service Node: PE Switch Customer Subscribes to 1/10GE Ethernet Port(s) R&E networks VPLS (pt – pt, multipoint) KMEX Commodity Internet

20 Services Services available to a customer with an EPC Member A Member C Member B

21 Services Community-wide, distributed service for members to exchange traffic across a common network. Similar to an Internet Exchange Member-to-Member peering, ad-hoc R&E activities Best-effort traffic exchange within the community Transit service to major R&E networks such as Internet 2, ESNet, NLR… Provided by KINBER affiliates Virtual private networks with committed bandwidth can be established using VPLS instances in the PennREN network VPWS – Virtual Private Wire Service – Point to Point VPLS – Virtual Private LAN Service - Multipoint Access to commodity Internet service is available over the PennREN network

22 Optical – Wave/Lambda Services Optical Waves 10G can be provisioned across the network Member A Member B

23 PerfSONAR Measurement Archives allow exchange of data with other network operators Regularly scheduled testing across the backbone User-initiated testing for applications such as problem diagnosis Multiple routing tables allow us to support both 1G and 10G testpoints on a single host Performance Measurement

24 Deploying performance measurement servers at each service node 3 servers per site: –Active throughput measurement (1G and 10G) –Active latency measurement –local data collection / ad hoc performance measurement Specific performance measurement tools include: BWCTL OWAMP MaDDash 24

25 Network Measurement GlobalNOC tool-set updated to support all PennREN devices, including: – SNAPP – High-resolution SNMP-based network utilization data – LLAMA – DWDM layer performance measurement data – Central storage of other passive data like syslog, configuration, flow, etc. for regular and ad-hoc processing & analysis.

26 PennREN Service Desk GlobalNOC Specialized Support Technician Footprints PennREN project created – integrated to TickMon, Operations Calendars, Trouble Tickets Telephone number for PennREN customers integrated into shared GlobalNOC phone queue Email established to receive customer inquiries and or communications from vendors….this is monitored

27 PennREN Service Desk Network and Member impact guidelines defined Web form for customers/vendors to submit trouble tickets into Footprints Change management process/form created Internal documentation developed/published for staff training and reference

28 PennREN Service Desk Pro-active network monitoring Support for scheduled maintenances and changes Vendor coordination Customer install process Reporting Security Tools and Communications

29 Weighing network needs

30 A new network is more than a construction project Its a system: – Goals – Infrastructure – People – Services – Operations – Business Make decisions and plans early (also, there will be more decisions than you think, so watch for bottlenecks) The work on all of these areas starts right away

31 Service Definition Unrealistic to imagine services will be completely defined from the beginning of the design But, enough understanding is needed to guide the design and build plan Early anchor users help a lot!

32 Communications Communication needs: – to be high-bandwidth – Early is good – Changing staff can be disruptive, do it carefully. – Informal is good – Multi-channel is good – reliable technologies are good – Face to face is good

33 Documentation Documentation: – Have a place for documents – Keep the place for documents clean – Keep the purpose of each document clear/distinct

34 Operations Operations Preparedness: – Start early, there are a LOT of things to think about, especially: Turn-up/acceptance process Expectations for facilities How and where to keep network data

35 Build-outs make for lots of information Need to be ready to put it somewhere where itll be usable later Data entry is cheap Entering/documenting is best when the information and its context are fresh

36 The lowly management network Sometimes doesnt get enough attention It can get crazy complicated or crazy expensive NOTE: in an SDN world, this becomes even MORE important!
