2 The EduPop Project Growth of Multimedia Resources at Rice University fosters reflection on the structure of the Internet

3 Delivering Multimedia to Off-campus Community Become ISP Not within University Mission Costly to University Partner with ISP Preferential treatment Non-competitive service Create peering point between ISP’s and education

4 Creating a new Peering point became the best choice

5 Existing Conditions - Texas GigaPOP Network Links Texas Higher Education Institutions/Internet 2 backbone Recent policy change to add K-12 institutions Other efforts underway to fund K-12 links to GigaPOP

6 Benefits to Commercial ISPs Access to large customer base Marketing benefit of affiliation with Rice and others Technical benefit of shifting local traffic directly to educational Institutions.

7 Edupop Picture

8 Challenges we faced How to fund the peering site How to bring the educational institutions together How to bring commercial ISPs to the project How to get the project built

9 Funding the peering site TIF Board Discovery grant program – natural fit, had to find 10% local cost-share

10 Bringing Educational Partners Together Rice University Texas A & M University University of Texas Health Science Center Houston University of Houston Baylor College of Medicine Aldine Independent School District Houston Independent School District Spring Branch Independent School District Texas Education Service Center Region IV

11 Bringing Commercial ISP’s to the project Challenges: Market changes Identifying ISP’s with local aggregation point Conflicting internal policies within RBOC Opportunities Flexible attitude towards peering The HAL-PC example

12 Success = marriage of technical benefit and marketing benefit HalPC RoadRunner Time/Warner Internet America

13 Building It –Technical and Legal Issues Technical – developed and implemented new policy for networking peering point Legal – very significant – caused delays in implementation Agreement in principal – enough for one provider Simple agreement in writing – enough for second provider Lengthy contract requiring months of work by legal counsel required for third provider

14 Building It – Logistical Issues Local – coordination with campus facilities and networking departments External – problems can be extensive changes in city policy city construction projects literal unknown roadblocks contractor and subcontractor challenges

15 Building It – Selecting Providers Selected Provider – pros More service for the money New infrastructure for community Selected Provider - cons Market conditions and physical construction problems caused significant delays to project.

16 Outcomes EduPop peering site is in place

17 Outcomes EduPop peering site is in place 2 of three providers are peering

18 Outcomes EduPop peering site is in place 2 of three providers are peering Other peering groups (e.g. MAGIE) are peering as well

19 Outcomes EduPop peering site is in place 2 of three providers are peering Other peering groups (e.g. MAGIE) are peering as well VPN implemented at UTHSC and TAMU

20 Outcomes EduPop peering site is in place 2 of three providers are peering Other peering groups (e.g. MAGIE) are peering as well VPN implemented at UTHSC and TAMU Texas GigaPOP Network connections to K-12 Institutions in place

21 Outcomes EduPop peering site is in place 2 of three providers are peering Other peering groups (e.g. MAGIE) are peering as well VPN implemented at UTHSC and TAMU Texas GigaPOP Network connections to K-12 Institutions in place EduPop will become Texas GigaPOP facility

22 Outcomes EduPop peering site is in place 2 of three providers are peering Other peering groups (e.g. MAGIE) are peering as well VPN implemented at UTHSC and TAMU Texas GigaPOP Network connections to K-12 Institutions in place EduPop will become Texas GigaPOP facility Unexpected benefit – EduPop has become a critical component of network disaster recovery plan (Tropical Storm)

23 A fast Internet routing point between commercial Internet Service Providers and the Educational Institutions in the region
