1 StarLight Located in Abbott Hall, Northwestern University’s Chicago Campus Operational since summer 2001, StarLight is a 1GigE and 10GigE switch/router facility for high- performance access to participating networks StarLight is equipped for optical and electronic switching of wavelengths and lightpaths 40 racks; no cross connect fees Maxine Brown, Tom DeFanti, Joe Mambretti

2 StarLight is StarLight is a Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet exchange for R&E Production Networks (Force 10) And a GigE lambda exchange for US, Canada, Europe, Asia and South America for Experimental Networks And 1&10Gb MEMS-switched Research Network hub And the Chicago host to the NSF DTFnet, a 4x10Gb Network for the TeraGrid and DTF/ETF links to Abilene; NLR, USAWaves, others coming. A colo space: 40 racks for networking and computing, data management and visualization support equipment Using fiber and circuits from SBC, Qwest, AT&T, Global Crossing, T-Systems, Looking Glass, RCN, and I-WIRE

3 StarLight US and International Networks as of October 2003 Abilene 20Gb ESnet (DOE) DREN (DOD) NREN (NASA) AMPATH (South America) CA*net4 (Canada) SURFnet (Netherlands) CERN/DataTAG TransPAC/APAN (Asia) NaukaNET (Russia) ASnet (Taiwan) HARnet (Hong Kong) GEMnet (Japan) Others via STAR TAP OC-12 and Abilene transit

4 What is TransLight? TransLight is a global-scale networking initiative to support prototypes of the most aggressive e- science applications. TransLight consists of dozens of schedulable provisioned Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) circuits among North America, Europe and Asia via StarLight in Chicago, NetherLight in Amsterdam. Some 10Gb circuits are also available and schedulable. TransLight is the infrastructure part of GLIF, the Global Lambda Integrated Facility

5 TransLight Goals TransLight enables grid researchers to – experiment with deterministic provisioning of dedicated circuits, –compare results with standard and experimental aggregated Internet traffic. TransLight tests include: –moving large amounts of data, –supporting real-time collaboration and visualization, –enabling globally distributed lambda grid computing.
