2 Networking for Research and Education in Brazil
Summary New optical transmission and switching technologies allow significant reduction in the costs of setting up and operating research and education networks. By means of examples we show how these opportunities are being exploited in Brazil. Our agenda: A brief look at RNP Project GIGA – an optical networking testbed IPÊ – the next-generation national network Redecomep – Community-based Optical Metropolitan Networks International connectivity New services Some special user application areas Networking for Research and Education in Brazil

3 RNP – Rede Nacional de Ensino e Pesquisa
RNP is the Brazilian national research and education network maintained by the Brazilian government (since 1989) provides national (inter-state) and international connectivity for more than 400 universities and research centers through the provision of advanced networking infrastructure collaboration – links to other similar networks internationally (Internet2, ESnet, NASA, GÉANT, APAN, RedCLARA) commodity – links to the commercial Internet supports the development of advanced networking and applications RNP is managed for the federal government by a non-profit private company, RNP-OS Networking for Research and Education in Brazil

12 Networking for Research and Education in Brazil
R&D activities 2/3 of the GIGA project budget is for R&D activities in the following areas: Optical networking (CPqD) Network protocols and services (RNP) Experimental telecommunications services (CPqD) Scientific Services and Applications (RNP) Many of the R&D activities are contracted out to research groups in the university community (at more than 50 different institutions throughout Brazil) Incentives for technology transfer to industry The network is also being used for the development and/or demonstration of high capacity networking applications by scientific researchers in various areas (HEP, computational biology, earth sciences, environmental sciences, etc), often using grid computing. Networking for Research and Education in Brazil

13 Optical networks: benefits for the R&E community
Based on practical experience with the testbed network of Project GIGA, RNP began to deploy in 2005 a multi-Gbps network for the national R&E community This has two main components: IPÊ multi-Gbps backbone network ipê: (a word in Tupi pronounced “ee-pay”) is Brazil’s national flower (Tabebuia chrysotricha) i-pê: IP (Internet Protocol) in Portuguese IPE: Inovação, Pesquisa, Educação (Innovation, Research, Education) Redecomep: community-based optical metropolitan networks for shared local Gbps access to IPÊ PoPs yellow ipê in blossom Networking for Research and Education in Brazil

14 IPÊ: next generation network (2005)
IPÊ – Nov 2005 (60 Gbps) Fortaleza Recife Salvador Rio de Janeiro Belo Horizonte Brasília São Paulo Curitiba Florianópolis Porto Alegre use of multiple Gbps for interstate links initially between 10 cities unprotected 2.5 and 10G waves from two telcos routers from Juniper Networks (M320, M40) commissioned in November 2005 2.5 Gbps 10 Gbps Networking for Research and Education in Brazil

15 Redecomep - Optical Metropolitan Networks for the R&E community
Long distance networks arrive in a particular point of each city served – Point of Presence (PoP) To serve a set of clients in the same city, necessary to provide individual access to the PoP – “Last Mile problem” A similar problem arises when we wish to provide connectivity between branches of a single organisation in the same city Traditional telco solution to the “Last Mile problem” : Rent telco point to point data services to get to PoP Recurrent cost a function of bandwidth Often results in “under-provisioning” due to high cost Alternative solution (DIY networking): Build and operate your own optical metro network Networking for Research and Education in Brazil

18 RNP activities in metro networks 2005/6 (www.redecomep.rnp.br)
In December 2004, RNP obtained US$15 financing from Finep to build optical metro networks in all 27 capital cities in Brazil (projects MetroBel and Redecomep) Situation of MetroBel project in Belém: Cabling tender published in August 2005 Cabling begun in March 2006 (to be ready by June) Currently projects under way for installing metro networks in the following cities: Manaus, Belém, Fortaleza, Natal, Recife, Salvador, Vitória, Brasília, Curitiba, Florianópolis, Porto Alegre, … Networking for Research and Education in Brazil

19 International connectivity
Two kinds of traffic: “commodity” (Internet1) and “cooperation” (Internet2, or Research and Education) We will limit ourselves to talk about cooperation traffic, i.e. relationships with similar research and education networks in other countries and continents This area has advanced greatly in the last 4 years due to government initiatives in the EU and the US: EU’s ALICE project and the RedCLARA network. NSF’s IRNC program and the WHREN/LILA project An important result has been the creation of the CLARA organization. Networking for Research and Education in Brazil

20 Networking for Research and Education in Brazil
Cooperação Latino Americana de Redes Avançadas Open association of national research and education networks (NRENs) in LA formally constituted in Uruguay similar to TERENA (Europe) and APAN target member countries are the Spanish and Portuguese-speaking countries of Central and South America and the Caribbean Main objective: Build a regional network to interconnect LA NRENs and provide them with connectivity to Europe, North America and other regions Networking for Research and Education in Brazil
