NLR Going Forward Currently requesting a one year commitment from each Class A & B member FRGP conditions: Investor Status, Class A membership, Critical Mass of Class A & B members recommit (9 or 10 of 14 total)
NLR Future Funded through 12/31/08 with current commitments (some expire 6/30/08 and some 6/30/09) Erv Blythe (Chair of I2 BoD) report to Network Policy Council (EDUCAUSE CIOs): –NLR has several future paths, ranging from the spectacularly rich and positive on the one extreme, to the folding of the endeavor on the other extreme Expect one of the middle paths to prevail: –a major subset of the members continue to support the current model, including developing the capital to begin an upgrade of the infrastructure, or –a major player steps forward with the commitment of capital for a major upgrade, with new application requirements, and with new revenues to enable the subsidization and preservation of a significant, protected R&E part of an expanded infrastructure –Emphasized under any future scenario, expected an absolute commitment to maintaining control of the IRU's for the benefit of broad R&E and economic development interests –Stressed NLR’s desire to work in a complementary and non-competitive way with I2 –Do not believe that either the NLR or the I2 Boards would be willing to look again at merger in the next couple of years.
I2/NLR Services Provisioning for all services –NLR via owned fiber and hardware at marginal pricing –I2 via leased Level3 services at lower than Level3 pricing Layer 1 –10Gbps lambdas NLR via owned fiber at marginal pricing I2 via leased Level3 services at lower than Level3 pricing Both testing optical switching Layer 2 –1/10Gbps VLANs
I2/NLR Services Cont’d Layer 3 –NLR members connect at 10Gbps as part of $1M fee Back-up via FrameNet as part of cost –I2 connect at 1/10Gbps per fee schedule Back-up via 2x10 service via dynamic wave Conditions of Use –None NLR –SEGP, Sponsored Participant, etc. on I2
I2/NLR Services Cont’d Peering –NLR provides infrastructure for TransitRail $200K/year for TransitRail service at 2Gbps –I2 provides peering via Abilene connection Not free in the sense that you may have to buy bigger pipe to support peering
Scenarios Drop NLR/TransitRail Drop NLR/TransitRail and decouple from Utah Drop I2
