1 Tom DeFanti, Maxine Brown Principal Investigators, STAR TAP Linda Winkler, Bill Nickless, Alan Verlo, Caren Litvanyi, Andy Schmidt STAR TAP Engineering Joe Mambretti, Tim Ward StarLight Facilities Development and Operations

2 STAR TAP and StarLight STAR TAP: 5-year-old operational cross- connect of the world's high-performance Production R&E Networks Mb ATM StarLight: optical evolution of STAR TAP connecting and switching/routing –Production Networks at 1Gb –Experimental Networks at 1Gb, 2.5Gb, and 10Gb –Research Networks at 10Gb Funded by US NSF CISE ANIR, EIA and ACIR infrastructure grants to UIC, UIUC, NU, and IU Enabling and sustaining support by ANL MCS

3 Who is StarLight? StarLight is jointly managed and engineered by: International Center for Advanced Internet Research (iCAIR), Northwestern University –Joe Mambretti, David Carr, and Tim Ward Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL), University of Illinois at Chicago –Tom DeFanti, Maxine Brown, Alan Verlo, Jason Leigh, Cliff Nelson, and Andy Schmidt Mathematics and Computer Science Division (MCS), Argonne National Laboratory –Linda Winkler, Bill Nickless, and Caren Litvanyi; Rick Stevens and Charlie Catlett

4 What/Where is StarLight? 710 N. Lake Shore Drive, Chicago Abbott Hall, Northwestern University Chicago view from 710 StarLight is an experimental optical infrastructure and proving ground for network services optimized for high-performance applications StarLight Assists $32M (FY2002-3) in experimental networks (I-WIRE, TeraGrid, OMNInet, SURFnet, CA*net4, DataTAG)

5 StarLight Carriers Currently Present: –Ameritech –AT&T –Qwest –Global Crossing –Teleglobe –And I-WIRE Dark Fiber More are coming…

6 StarLight Service Description Today StarLight is a Gigabit Ethernet exchange point Policy-free 802.1q VLANs are created between peering partners StarLight benefits connecting networks: –High-speed peering with large MTU –Available collocation space –Planned 10GigE, other switched services –Several US and international networks connected –Multicast support

7 StarLight is Now Fully Operational StarLight Equipment installed: –Cisco 6509 with lots of GigE ports –Juniper M10 and M5 (with GigE and OC-12 interfaces) –Cisco LS1010 with OC-12 interfaces –ESnets IPv6 Router –Data mining cluster with GigE NICs SURFnets Cisco GSR &15454 Multiple vendors for GigE, 10GigE, and DWDM
