3 University of Illinois at Chicago Networks at STAR TAP International Networks: –There Now: APAN (Asia Pacific Consortium), CA*net2 (Canada), MirNET (Russia), Renater2 (France), SURFnet (The Netherlands), SREN (Singapore), TANet (Taiwan) –Coming in July: CERN, IUCC (Israel), NORDUnet (Nordic Consortium) US Networks: –Abilene, DREN, ESnet, NISN, NREN, vBNS, MREN

4 University of Illinois at Chicago Status on Network Link Turn-ups International Networks: –IUCC …. 7/1/99 –NORDUnet …. 7/8/99 –CERN …. 7/28/99 US Networks: –vBNS ===> OC-12 this month - DONE! –Abilene ===> OC-12 this month

5 University of Illinois at Chicago Non STAR TAP U.S./International Peering Abilene/SURFnet& NORDUnet –Ref: Guy Almes Slides CA*net2/3 and US Nets at Seattle US - Mexico UCAID/CENIC/CUDI –T1 between SDSU (San Diego) and CICESE (Ensenada) Non Backbone Inter Gigapop Links both not for profit and commercial examples: NYSERNET, Teleglobe STAR TAP is at the MREN Gigapop

6 University of Illinois at Chicago STAR TAP STAR TAP has: –Many U.S. and International Peers –Persistence –Dedicated AADS Infrastructure/ISP Access –Value Added Services –Enough Critical Mass to attract the contributions of many members of our community –Cutting Edge projects e.g. Optical IX

8 University of Illinois at Chicago STAR TAP is a Collaborative Effort STAR TAP/Eurolink (UIC) STAR TAP (Ameritech Advanced Data Services) TransPAC (Indiana University/Argonne National Lab) MirNET (University of Tennessee) NOC (Indiana University) I2 Routing Registry (Merit/University of Michigan) OCXMON/Coral and AMP (NLANR/MOAT, CAIDA) 6TAP (ESnet/CANARIE) Surveyor (Advanced Network & Services) Web Caches (NLANR, I2 DS WG) Advanced Video Services (iCAIR/Northwestern University) MREN

12 University of Illinois at Chicago STAR TAP- IPv4 Router - Benefits One stop shopping for most STAR TAP routes 16 Networks and 15 MREN Universities now at STAR TAP More expected next year Full peering would require 31*30/2 = 465 sessions Complements layer 2 peering not meant to replace it! STAR TAP Router is AUP free Tools will be made available to implement network and link AUPs Supports High Performance Multicast BFR coming end of 99

13 University of Illinois at Chicago STAR TAP- IPv4 Router - Downside Extra Hop STAR TAP router is meant to complement layer 2 peering not replace it If an extra hop is a problem - direct peering is a quick fix STAR TAP router can can provide a backup route in case direct route goes down –not likely but a backup route never hurts

14 University of Illinois at Chicago STAR TAP- IPv4 Router - Added Value Web Displays of Routing Tables Indiana University Weather MAP Measurement Statistics and Analysis from OC-3MON and Router SNMP MIB SNMP Proxy Server Internet2 Routing Registry Web Caches AMP
