1 Lighting the Next-Generation Network Across Texas presented at the EDUCAUSE Southwest Regional Conference Omni Austin Hotel Downtown Austin, Texas Thursday February 17, 2005 Jim Williams

2 LEARN Mission  LEARN is a non-profit collaboration of Texas higher education institutions that supports their research, education, health care, and public service missions through the innovative development, operation and utilization of advanced statewide networking, access to global resources, and related services.

3 LEARN Vision  To be the premier organization providing network services for research, education, health care and economic development through advanced communication services throughout Texas. LEARN will be a national model for organizations that serve institutions of higher education. We will provide leadership in creating global networking initiatives.

21 On the alignment of planets (the enablers)  Dark fiber availability  DWDM Technology  The NLR “carrot”  The Grid  Unprecedented Texas collaboration

22 Dark fiber availability (from overinvestment)

24 Wave division multiplexing?

25 The Harmonic Telegraph

26 On the convergence of great ideas, enormous blunders and able people. In that order.

31 An early example of grid computing

32 Current grid resources in Texas High performance computing + High performance networking

Physics data cache ~PByte/sec Gbps Tier2 Center ~1-10 Gbps Tier 0 +1 Tier 3 Tier 4 Tier2 Center Tier 2 Experiment CERN/Outside Resource Ratio ~1:2 Tier0/(  Tier1)/(  Tier2) ~1:1:1 H. Newman National Science Foundation selects UTA, Boston Univ., Harvard for supercollider network computing site The University of Texas at Arlington has been selected from a field of proposals that included the University of California at Berkeley, Duke University and the University of Michigan to receive a $3 million dollar grant from the National Science Foundation. The grant is one of three given by the NSF to create giant computer clusters which form an international grid connected to a new supercollider built by a consortium of 34 nations in Geneva, Switzerland. UT-Arlington Professor of Physics Kaushik De said adding the computing grid network to the supercollider will enable physicists to take the next important step in the evolution of the Internet and World Wide Web computing.Physics

41 In summary, LEARN will  Will connect to NLR  Will connect to TTVN, THENet, NetNet, NTGP, SETGP...  Can be used to aggregate  Internet2 connections  Commodity Internet connections  Will contain costs and control (we own it)  Will provide for future capacity  Will enhance Texas competitiveness  Will maintain human networks

42 Current Status  Expect the “triangle” up by end of 2Q05  Initial LEARN deployment 4Q05  Expect contracts for fiber completed within days  Expect $7.2 M from the State of Texas momentarily

43 Thanks for your attention for further information

44 Darn, I almost forgot  You are not all from Austin  Heck, some of you are not even yet Texans  Life is short  This IS the LIVE MUSIC CAPITAL OF THE WORLD  And we also have GREAT FOOD!!!!

59 Broken Spoke Best Honky-Tonk in Texas The venerable Broken Spoke has always reigned supreme as Austin's country music palace. When you need your Lone Star cold, lots of sawdust on the floor, and the ghost of Ernest Tubb on your shoulder, the Spoke is it. And don't fuss about getting any whiskey dings on your car. That's part of the charm. Tonight Chapparal with Jeff Hughes
