CENIC 5757 Plaza Dr. Ste 205 Cypress, CA (714) Knowledge Network-Exploiting California’s Experience Jim Dolgonas President and CEO CENIC
CENIC 5757 Plaza Dr. Ste 205 Cypress, CA (714) Knowledge Network-Exploiting California’s Experience in Fiber-based Research and Education Networking Why create knowledge network CENIC as provider of knowledge network in California Importance of high speed networking to research Why separate, fiber-based network outside of normal telecommunications services is desirable for knowledge networks Summary
CENIC 5757 Plaza Dr. Ste 205 Cypress, CA (714) Economic Impact of CA Public Education “California’s public education systems not only create vital educational opportunities that help improve the quality of life for all Californians, they also represent the economic engine that keeps California thriving and globally competitive.” -- CCC Chancellor Diane Woodruff
CENIC 5757 Plaza Dr. Ste 205 Cypress, CA (714) Economic Impact of CA Public Education A strong economy needs a strong education community — examples include: UC: critical to California’s leading industries (patents, research, start-ups) CSU: 45% of California’s computer and electronics engineers CCC: 300,000 engineering/industrial students each year, 200,000 IT students K12: Supplies incoming students to ALL the above
CENIC 5757 Plaza Dr. Ste 205 Cypress, CA (714) Knowledge Network Empowering Education in California Broadband networking strengthens California economy through empowering the CA educational community: California K-12 System-over 1000 districts and 8000 schools California’s Community Colleges-110 colleges California State University-23 campuses University of California-10 campuses Private and Independent universities (e.g., Caltech, Stanford, USC, etc.)
CENIC 5757 Plaza Dr. Ste 205 Cypress, CA (714) Knowledge Network Should be looked at as infrastructure, similar to power Critical component for R&E today-and therefore critical to future economy
CENIC 5757 Plaza Dr. Ste 205 Cypress, CA (714) CENIC Nonprofit, formed in 1997 by CA R&E community to exploit economies of scale in networking and offer pre commercial services Originally 9 UC campuses, 3 CSU campuses, Caltech, Stanford, and USC Now, all of CA K-20 public educational institutions, 3 original privates, Naval Postgraduate, USD, USF, NASA Ames, National U, Pepperdine, Wharton West etc. Governed by & answerable to K-20 segments
CENIC 5757 Plaza Dr. Ste 205 Cypress, CA (714) CENIC’s Mission and Goals-focused and narrow Mission: “…to develop, deploy and operate leading edge network- based services and to facilitate and coordinate their use for the research and education community to advance learning and innovation” Goals: Provide competitive advantage in global marketplace to education and research communities Provide opportunities for innovation in teaching, learning and research through use of the network.
CENIC 5757 Plaza Dr. Ste 205 Cypress, CA (714) The CA Research & Education Network California K-12 system (8,000+ schools and COEs) California’s Community Colleges (110 campuses) CSU (23 campuses) UC (10 campuses) Caltech, USC, Stanford, MBARI Naval Postgrad, USD, USF Pepperdine, Wharton West
CENIC 5757 Plaza Dr. Ste 205 Cypress, CA (714) The CA Research & Education Network Connectivity to Internet2, National LambdaRail, on to Europe Connectivity to CUDI, CA*net4 Connectivity to Pacific Rim and beyond w/ Pacific Wave
CENIC 5757 Plaza Dr. Ste 205 Cypress, CA (714) CENIC Funding Overview National Science Foundation Grant-for some one-start up funds Members pay fees for on going costs and costs for refreshing the network to maintain technology currency When K-12 schools and 2 year community colleges added in 2000, restructured fees
CENIC 5757 Plaza Dr. Ste 205 Cypress, CA (714) California State and Federal Participation No direct funding from State Public college and university (State) budgets include funding for networking Relatively small amounts of Federal funding (via National Science Foundation grants) for international connectivity)
CENIC 5757 Plaza Dr. Ste 205 Cypress, CA (714) Current funding and fees Fee structure established to ENCOURAGE use- flat annual fees rather than usage-based fees Though no direct State funding, customers/members include all public/State institutions
CENIC 5757 Plaza Dr. Ste 205 Cypress, CA (714) Fee Structure Annual Backbone Fees- Equal for K12, 2 year colleges, 4 year public colleges and 4 year public research Universities. Fees pay for unlimited use. Each pays for cost to connect from school/campus site to backbone (circuit or fiber plus equipment) Some optional services-e.g., video teleconferencing paid for by those who use it
CENIC 5757 Plaza Dr. Ste 205 Cypress, CA (714) CENIC’s Members and Governance Government not a member, not served Commercial firms not a member, not served May begin to support Statewide telemedicine network Board is composed of members State government is not on Board Board representation is sized to educational segment (K-12, 2 year colleges, 4 year public colleges, 4 year public research and single research institutions)
CENIC 5757 Plaza Dr. Ste 205 Cypress, CA (714) Why Very High Speed Networking is Critical Attract faculty/researchers Compete and participate in international science/research Satisfy needs of researchers/facilitate collaboration
CENIC 5757 Plaza Dr. Ste 205 Cypress, CA (714) Why Owned Fiber Networks for R&E Economies in offering multiple high speed networks, via Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) Ability to offer dedicated networking to individual researchers at very low, marginal cost, compared to pricing of common telecommunications carriers
CENIC 5757 Plaza Dr. Ste 205 Cypress, CA (714) Need to Serve Multiplicity of Needs Fiber supported our needs to serve a wide range of uses, from K-12 to leading network researchers Allows for the coexistence of multiple independent network tiers (using separate light waves or lambdas) Network Development and Evolution For the California Research and Education Community
CENIC 5757 Plaza Dr. Ste 205 Cypress, CA (714) Why CENIC Acquired Fiber-2001 Cost containment-expenditures on TeleCo circuits linear Responsiveness Ability to meet different needs/flexibility Ability to provision large amounts of capacity for short periods of time. Ability to provision capacity upon little notice Allow/support the unplanned/unthinkable
CENIC 5757 Plaza Dr. Ste 205 Cypress, CA (714) Why Acquire Fiber in 2008? Cost containment. Responsiveness. Ability to meet different needs/flexibility. Capabilities to: Attract faculty, Compete for research dollars, Satisfy needs of researchers, and, Support emerging telemedicine. Allow/support unthinkable. Critical component of cyber infrastructure.
CENIC 5757 Plaza Dr. Ste 205 Cypress, CA (714) Owned Fiber Networks Provide Freedom Traditional network and organizational processes are fixed and immobile, limiting the ability for users or customers to innovate and create new custom solutions. Owned fiber is the solution. Grids and cyber-infrastructure are the first steps in this direction of user control and management in the research community.
CENIC 5757 Plaza Dr. Ste 205 Cypress, CA (714) CENIC Fiber in CA Dot com boom resulted in already installed fiber being available for sale to CENIC CENIC has built fiber in addition to installed fiber-generally for relatively short distances, but up to 100 miles in one case Fiber is either installed on existing telcom or power poles, in existing telecom conduit or in newly installed duct
CENIC 5757 Plaza Dr. Ste 205 Cypress, CA (714) Right of Ways and Permitting In California, telecommunications companies have access to power poles. CENIC-acquired and -installed fiber obtained via competitive local exchange carriers CalTrans (Dept of Highways) has new mandate to assist broadband deployment In CA, are various entities having permitting jurisdictions-can slow down projects
CENIC 5757 Plaza Dr. Ste 205 Cypress, CA (714) Building Better High Speed Networking Tools for Higher Ed Maintaining leadership in technology Promotes innovation – Cyber infrastructure Measures pre-eminence in higher ed among nations. Creates new “norms of practice and rules, incentives, and constraints that shape individual and collective action”-NSF, Chief Arden Bement Jr

CENIC 5757 Plaza Dr. Ste 205 Cypress, CA (714) International Research Collaborations The list of potential collaborations continue to grow A fiber-based network is require to participate in research collaborations
CENIC 5757 Plaza Dr. Ste 205 Cypress, CA (714) Summary Knowledge Network is required for international research competitiveness Knowledge Network requires fiber infrastructure Fiber network can support other Mexico-specific needs (e.g., network backbone for K-12) Governance structure must include members/users Funding model must not discourage usage
