5 CA*net 3 & Community Networks  E-research grids  Researchers will want to use computing resources of schools and homes  SETI@Home SETI@Home  New grid projects in bio-informatics, pharmaceutical research, particle physics need access to millions of computers  Democratization of research  Next big discovery in cancer or particle physics could be made at your local high school

6 Customer Empowered Networks  School boards and municipalities throughout North America are building condominium dark fiber networks in partnership with next generation carrier  Individual institutions – the customers – own and control their own strands of fiber  Fiber are configured in point to point private networks; or  Connect to local ISP or carrier hotel  Private sector maintains the fiber  Low cost LAN architectures and optics are used to light the fiber  These new concepts in customer empowered networking are starting in the same place as the Internet started – the university and research community.  Customers will start with dark fiber but will eventually extend further outwards with customer control and ownership of wavelengths  Extending the Internet model of autonomous peering networks to the telecom world

7 Examples of CEN Customer Empowered Networks  Universities in Quebec are building their own 3500km “condominium” fiber network in partnership with 6 next gen carriers- $US 2million  Will deploy and manage their own optics and long haul transmission gear  Universities in Alberta are deploying their own 400 km 4xGbe dark fiber network - $US 200K  Deploy and manage their own optics and long haul transmission gear  Chicago is building a fiber networking linking all public sector institutions - $US 250m  City of Montreal is second most fibered city in the world because of municipal owned open access conduit  In Ottawa is deploying a 85km- 144 strand “condominium” network connecting 26 institutions – cost $1m US  Peel County – Missassuaga & Brampton has built a 200km public sector fiber network - $US 5m  Many other cities including Ashland OR, Halifax, Fredericton, Toronto are looking at similar initiatives

8 Market Drivers  First - low cost  Up to 1000% reduction over current telecom prices. 6-12 month payback  Second - LAN invades the WAN – no complex SONET or ATM required in network  Network Restoral & Protection can be done by customer using a variety of techniques such as wireless backup, or relocating servers to a multi-homed site, etc  Third - Enables new applications and services not possible with traditional telecom service providers  Relocation of servers and extending LAN to central site  Out sourcing LAN and web servers to a 3 rd party because no performance impact  IP telephony in the wide area (Spokane)  HDTV video  Fourth – Allows access to new competitive low cost telecom and IT companies at carrier neutral meet me points  Much easier to out source servers, e-commerce etc to a 3 rd party at a carrier neutral collocation facility

9 What is condominium fiber?  A number of organizations such as schools, hospitals, businesses and universities get together to fund and build a fiber network  Carrier partners are also invited to be part of condominium project  Several next generation carriers and fiber brokers are now arranging condominium fiber builds  IMS, QuebecTel, Videotron, Cogeco, Dixon Cable, GT Telecom, etc etc  Fiber is installed, owned and maintained by 3 rd party professional fiber contractors – usually the same contractors used by the carriers for their fiber builds  Each institution gets its own set of fibers, at cost, on a 20 year IRU (Indefeasible Right of Use)  One time up front cost, plus annual maintenance and right of way cost approx 5% of the capital cost  Institution lights up their own strands with whatever technology they want – Gigabit Ethernet, ATM, PBX, etc  New long range laser will reach 120 km  Ideal solution for point to point links for large fixed institutions  Payback is usually less than 18 months

10 Province wide network of condominium fiber to 420 communities in Alberta Guaranteed cost of bandwidth to all public sector institutions $500/mo for 10 Mbps, $700/mo for 100 Mbps Network a mix of fibre builds and existing supplier infrastructure (swap/buy/lease) Condominium approach: All suppliers can Buy (or swap) a share of the fibre (during build or after) Lease bandwidth at competitive rates GOA has perpetual right to use (IRU) Ownership will be held at arms length GOA/stakeholder rates are costs to run divided over users Because of fibre capacity, bandwidth can be made available to businesses at urban competitive rate Total cost $193m Bell Intrigna prime contractor Alberta SUPERnet

11 Extended Area 372 communities GOA/stakeholder needs Proceeds from businesses (urban benchmarked rates) to GOA to further network Base Area 48 communities GOA/stakeholder needs Business proceeds to Bell (urban benchmarked rates) - $143 Million GOA - 100% GOA IRU - $50 Million GOA - 33%GOA IRU - $102 Million Bell - 67% Bell IRU Alberta SUPERnet IRUs

12 Combination: Fibre build Use of Existing Infrastructure Communities with one or more school BUFFALO TRAILS SCHOOL DIVISION Alberta SUPERnet Example

15 Fredericton, N.B. “At this morning's quarterly Mayor's Business Breakfast, City of Fredericton Mayor A.M. (Sandy) DiGiacinto released details about the high-speed fibre optic cable which will be used to connected the new NRC E-Commerce Institute (UNB campus) to the Greater Fredericton Knowledge Park. Staff have been instructed by City Council to prepare a business case that would leverage this 3 km stretch of cable into an Ultra High-Speed Community Network managed by the municipality.” Nov. 2000

16 Fredericton  Started as Economic Development tool  MUSH, Govt., Research - ISP, carriers invited to participate  Build partners emerged quickly, $50,000 “donated” by three firms  Contracting now for 8 km phase 1, $110,000, complete Sept 2001  48 fiber min.

20 List of School Board Fiber Builds


22 South Dundas Results  Morrisburg, Iroquios Have Fibre Hung  Electronics In and Fibre Lit  ISP’s, ASP’s all Want In the Fibre  Major Employers Inquiring  Very Positive Attitude in Community  Digital Desert to Digital Oasis

23 Peel County Municipal Fiber Network  Mississauga, Brampton, Pell  200 km of Fibre  96 strand backbone  “Enough for small country”  12-60 strands elsewhere  12,000 strand-kilometers  Laid end-to-end = Victoria to St. John’s …...and back again

24 Ottawa Fiber Condominium  Consortium consists of 16 members from various sectors including businesses, hospitals, schools, universities, research institutes  26 sites  Point-to-point topology  144 fibre pairs  Route diversity requirement for one member  85 km run  $11k - $50K per site  Total project cost $CDN 1.25 million  Cost per strand less than $.50 per strand per meter  80% aerial  Due to overwhelming response to first build – planning for second build under way


26 Ottawa Original Estimates  Original Engineering Estimates  Original estimates turned out to be 10% higher than RFP responses  Estimated cost to connect 22 institutions with 6 fibers to each institution in a star configuration  Total cost $615,000 or approximately $30,000 per institution “on average”  Actual costs range from $5K to $60K depending on how far institution is from center of star in downtown Ottawa  If condo fiber contractor were to double capacity of network (i.e.12 strands to each customer) cost of project would only increase by 10%  Or doubling number of participants would increase cost by only 10% (plus cost of laterals for additional institutions)  By doubling number of participants average cost would be less than $20,000 per institution  Ultimately fiber costs could get as low as $1000 per institution if every building in the city was connected with fiber

28 Section Cost Detail

29 Logical Layout of Topology Newbridge CRC OCRI CISCO Nortel Carleton Ottawa U NRC Telsat In reference model each institution has been assigned 6 strands to terminate on, or about 55 Metcalfe St Example: Carleton U has 6 strands 2 would cross connect to NRC/ONet 2 strands would connect directly to OttawaU 2 strands would connect directly to CRC (At NRC Carleton could interconnect at layer 3 with other organizations

30 Typical Fiber Capital Costs  Average total cost between $7 and $15 per meter as follows:  Engineering and Design:  $1 - $3 per meter for engineering, design, supervision, splicing  Plus Installation:  $7 to $10 per meter for install in existing conduit; or  $3 to $6 per meter for install on existing poles  Plus Premise termination:  Average $5k each  Plus cost of fiber:  15¢ per strand per meter for 36 strands or less  12¢ per strand per meter for 96 strands or less  10¢ per strand per meter 192 strands or less  5¢ per strand per meter over 192 strands

31 Condo Fiber Costs - Examples  Des affluents: Total cost $1,500,000 ($750,000 for schools)  70 schools  12 municipal buildings  204 km fiber  $1,500,000 total cost  average cost per building - $18,000 per building  Mille-Isles: Total cost $2,100,000 ($1,500,000 for schools)  80 schools  18 municipal buildings  223km  $21,428 per building  Laval: Total cost $1,800,000 ($1,000,000 for schools)  111 schools  45 municipal buildings  165 km  $11,500 per building  Peel county: Total cost $5m – 100 buildings  Cost per building $50,000

32 Typical Payback for school (Real example – des affluents – north of Montreal)  Over 3 years total expenditure of $1,440,000 for DSL service  Total cost of dark fiber network for 75 schools $1,350,000  Additional condominium participants were brought in to lower cost to school board to $750,000  School board can now centralize routers and network servers at each school  Estimated savings in travel and software upgrades $800,000  Payback typically 8 –16 months  Independent Study by Group Secor available upon request

34 Condo fiber for Business  Significant reduction in price for local loop costs  No increase in local loop costs as bandwidth demands increase  Ability to outsource LAN and web servers to distant location as LAN speeds and performance can be maintained over dark fiber  Access to lower cost competitive service providers at carrier neutral hotels  New entrants cannot afford high cost of building out their own fiber networks  Even small businesses with less than 20 employees can realize significant savings and benefits  Examples:  Colgate-Palmolive build in Cincinnati  Nortel, Cisco, Gov’t depts in Ottawa

35 Advantage of Condo Fiber Central Office Central Office Today: Customer pays 2 telcos for SONET connections Carrier managed SONET ring Customer Owned Dark Fiber Long reach lasers SONET Mux and ADM ISP Tomorrow: Multiple Customer owned dark fiber links to ISPs $50K one time Unlimited Bandwidth $50K one time Unlimited bandwidth Monthly cost Fixed Bandwidth

36 Condo Fiber versus SONET  Customer Owned Dark Fiber  Low equipment costs – mostly fused fiber, rarely any active devices  Low labour costs – only fiber maintenance  Fiber technology does not change  Costs can be amortized over 20 years  Most costs are capital vs operational  The only true future proof technology  Reliability obtained through purchase of 2 separate dark fiber route or wireless link, etc  Can take advantage of economies of scale with large fiber builds  Simple extension of LAN network  Unlimited bandwidth  “Good enough” is adequate for single entity  Carrier SONET network  High equipment cost – SONET muxes, etc  High labour costs for SONET muxes, CPE equipment etc  Equipment changes every 5 years  Costs must be amortized in 5 years  SONET soon may be replaced by GbE, DPT  Requires SONET ring to deliver 99.999 reliability  Limited economies of scale with larger SONET OC-192  Customer can not “capitalize” carrier service  CPE equipment required from LAN to WAN  Common carrier needs “perfect” network

37 Condo fiber for office buildings  Building risers increasingly becoming congested because so many new entrant carriers want access to building  Building owners are now insisting they will install fiber in risers from basement to tenants  Some building owners are extending fiber all the way to 2 or more collocation facilities  Tenants get to lease 2 or more strands in the fiber bundle to the collocation facilities  Tenants can then make independent deals to connect to the service provider of their choice  Tenants can then out source their web, network servers to 3 rd party

38 Condo fiber for cities  In downtown core minimizes digging up streets  If N carriers are trying to deploy service then number of times roads has to be torn up is N squared  However with condominium fiber road only has to be torn up once  Produces a competitive market place and level playing field  New competitive carrier can meet customers at carrier neutral collocation facilities  Eliminates market advantage of incumbents  In suburban areas eliminates duopoly of cable and TV companies  The first company to install fiber into suburban neighborhoods will likely have a natural monopoly  In Stockholm home owners have a choice of 4 cable companies  Makes cities a much more attractive place for new high tech businesses and service

39 2 Different Views Traditional Telco Network “Ring of Rings” 99.999% reliability only in the SONET Ideal for carriage of legacy traffic “Highest” common denominator technology and pricing Driver is bandwidth efficiency ISP A ISP B ISP C CO Customer Empowered Network “Warp and Woof” Separate dark fiber networks built by different competing organizations Customer responsible for building rings and establishing reliability Ideal for LAN and Internet traffic Driver is congestion avoidance SONET ring 3 separate dark fiber builds ACME Dark Fiber Inc Fiber R Us Inc Non Profit Fiber Inc ISP B ISP C

40 Facilities based competition in the residential neighborhood?  Facilities based competition is alive and well in downtown core  The biggest challenge for governments is manage and coordinate the digging up of streets  Outside of downtown in big cities  Usually only a monopoly telecom provider  At best a duopoly  How do we introduce facilities based competition into this market (or at least come as close as possible to true facilities based competition)?  As well how can we assure scalable high speed Internet services to the home that eventually will support Gigabit speeds or higher?

41 Community Fiber Architecture  A community consortia would put together a plan to fiber up all public sector buildings in their community  A community can be a province, a municipality, village, etc  A fiber splice box that terminates the fiber at the street side nearby each public sector building such as school, hospital, library is called a “Node”  Community should must insure that potential facilities exist near the for private sector equipment to connect up future home owners – colo facility  Colo facility allows private sector to extend wireless, VDSL or HFC services to the neighbourhood around the school  Public sector buildings will have dedicated fiber strands that connect to a “Supernode” which is a fiber splice box on the street beside outside of major public sector central facility such as school board office, city hall, university, etc  Community should insure that facilities exist nearby the Supernode for the private sector to install equipment to service home owners and businesses – colo facility  Additional fibers are made available from the Supernode to all Nodes such that competitive service providers can purchase fiber to the node at some future date

42 Possible architecture for large town School School board office School Telco Central Office Central Office For Wireless Company VDSL, HFC or Fiber Provisioned by service provider Condominium Fiber with separate strands owned by school and by service providers Carrier Owned Fiber Cable head end Average Fiber Penetration to 250-500 homes Colo Facility

43 Benefits to Industry  For cablecos and telcos it help them accelerate the deployment of high speed internet services into the community  Currently deployment of DSL and cable modem deployment is hampered by high cost of deploying fiber into the neighbourhoods  Cable companies need fiber to every 250 homes for cable modem service, but currently only have fiber on average to every 5000 homes  Telephone companies need to get fiber to every 250 homes to support VDSL or FSAN technologies  Wireless companies need to get fiber to every 250 homes for new high bandwidth wireless services and mobile Internet  It will provide opportunities for small innovative service providers to offer service to public institutions as well as homes  For e-commerce and web hosting companies it will generate new business in out sourcing and web hosting  For Canadian optical manufacturing companies it will provide new opportunities for sales of optical technology and components

44  There is a clear trend in all formerly monopoly services to move to unbundled competitive services  Roads and highway systems vs railways: infrastructure was largely “public”, but the services (e.g. trucking) were private and competitive  Electrical distribution systems: regulated monopolies (unbundling is on horizon)  Gas distribution systems: regulated monopolies (unbundling is well underway)  Legacy telecommunications systems: moving to unbundled fiber and facilities based competition Historical Reference Points

45 Carriers are not the only decision maker in the last mile  Governments and consumers are becoming more active voice in determining the future of broadband to home  Do not assume that carrier best technical solution is the only approach  Open access is becoming a critical political issue  Consumers want more than duopoly of cable and telco  Facilities based competition the best  Municipalities object to their streets being torn up  Dig once – bury lots of fiber  Residents object to street furniture and antennae

46  Governments promote the framework for GITH networks by funding schools, universities, libraries, hospitals and municipal buildings as first customers and early adopters of dark fiber and optical networks  Private sector leverages that investment by government to promote high speed Internet access to schools and universities to extend the fiber to the home  Electric utility companies, municipal governments, CLECs, SMEs, entrepreneurs, as well as traditional telcos and cablecos can participate as providers, provided they subscribe to the architecture of open access, facilities based competition through dark fiber (or wavelengths)  Emphasize the development and use of technology that specifically addresses the new architecture and the last mile, which must therefore be open, cheap and Internet-only An important Role for Government

47 Conclusion  Many governments have recognized the importance of access to low cost dark fiber as fundamental economic enabler  It will be the 21 st century equivalent to the roads and railways that were built in the 20 th century
