10 Reports from Members  North Dakota State University  University of Washington  Virginia Tech

11 University of Washington  Ron Johnson Vice President for Computing and Communications

12 Beyond the Backbone Connecting Ideas, Priorities, People and Resources Ron Johnson Vice President and Vice Provost University of Washington

13 The national backbone, as hard as that is to do, it is the easy part! 2nd easiest are the campus infrastructure issues Then there’s organizing the GigaPoP Connecting the Ideas, Priorities, People and Resources

14 Then there’s the GigaPoP(s) Working with:  RBOC’s etc (and the local loops we ‘regionals’ used to have, but now are gone :-(  NSF (where network funding mechanisms and great programs are still held hostage by lawyers and inspector generals)

15 Gigapops...  the nearest Qwest pop is >1000 miles away  Or there are a few too many Qwest/MCI et al etc. pop’s on the block :-)  Organizational issues

16  Understanding & Connecting with Mission Agency NGI efforts  Priming the local, regional and national Applications and Content Pumps  Soliciting/packaging Proposals -- PI’s with meritorious apps

17  Delivering on the Proposals & Initiatives  Getting the word out & getting mindshare  $$$, people with clue

18 But what are we actually doing? (other than going to I2 mtgs?:)  Created Core Pacific/Northwest GigaPoP & SNNAP etc. with peering and internet aggregation points  Multiple local gigabit attachments, city fiber grid -- w/I2 stepped up connections - NOAA et al (& attached vBNS & Abilene)

19  Campus Infrastructure Upgrades -- course corrections to leverage opportunities  Delivering on our related Proposals & Commitments  (RE)-Creating ‘regional’(!) network structure and connectivity

20 Wrestling with the ‘Region’s’  L O N G local loops (3k to Fairbanks - - Bozeman, Moscow etc.)  Commodity Internet Integration & Aggregation (esp. in areas w/o competitive local options) needs  Org. and Relationships building

21 OBSERVATION:  PERSISTENT REGIONAL HUB INFRASTRUCTURE - It’s hard to believe that it is far harder to create or resurrect a persistent R&E infrastructure than it is to (re)create a national backbone -- but it is!

22 OBSERVATION  WE need to do a far better job of developing a broad understanding within the ‘beltway’, and among our good PACI etc. friends that this is the case, and we need to seek their help in accomplishing that.

23  Working with mission agency NGI networks, pop’s, connections  Sorting out whether some other agencies (e.g. NIH) will play active roles, and how some other agencies will be involved (esp. when their ‘branches’ &/or PI’s are on our doorsteps)

24 OBSERVATION  We need to do a better job (for we sure haven’t succeeded thus far) of working to encourage NGI “mission” agencies to follow the promising examples that folks like Leighton of ESNET are setting, that exist as models to develop joint plans that really will effectively encompass university researchers, and which will leverage regional hubs

25 OBSERVATION:  Meanwhile NSF CISE really does need to be the vehicle for managing & distributing IT2, post-’vBNS’, and the bulk of NGI resources

26 Back on campus:  Getting the word out (soon enuf but not too soon, wide enuf but not too wide, loud enuf …  Applications/Content/Science/Arts … marshalling efforts - e.g. ResearchTV  Reshaping Efforts/Directions - middleware, contemplating trust fabric in a larger context

27  Saying “no” to non-RU1’s, community colleges, 4 years, k-12. Museums, galleries, libraries, other ISP’s?  Sorting through international connections  E-Ticket -- Looking to an exceedingly interesting future

31 Campus Infrastructure Investment  Continuous Investment is Required  Applications Drive Technology and Resources  Retention of Expertise is a Challenge  Risk and Return On Investment Costs are insignificant when considered as a function of the competitive importance to the institution of advanced communications infrastructure.

32 Rapid Evolution  Technology generation period is about 18 months.  Continuous refreshment enables us to take advantage of economies of scale and of scope $4.2M annually < 4000 connections $1,050 /connection 1999 $13M annually > 40,000 connections $300 / connection ($ dollars)
