TransLight/StarLight IRNC Award SCI-0441094 In cooperation with US and European national research and education networks, TransLight/StarLight will implement a strategy to best serve established production science TransLight/StarLight will support usage by those scientists, engineers and educators who have persistent large-flow, real-time, and/or other advanced application requirements
Scope of Work Procure and maintain (minimally) one OC-192 circuit that connects HDXcs in MAN LAN in New York City (NYC) and NetherLight in Amsterdam. Evaluate feasibility of a second OC-192 for L1/L2 production services for high-flow data and collaboration-intensive applications. Ensure that appropriate traffic monitoring, measurement and analysis are accomplished through NSF-designated partners. Promote and support availability to the advanced science, engineering and education communities who require ongoing transatlantic production services.
Opportunities for Broader Access NSF encourages Fednet use of these circuits –To partner with transatlantic Fednet applications development –To assist in providing transatlantic Fednet resiliency New circuits are evolving quickly –IRNC siblings in 2006, Ref: other presentations –IRNC 20 Gbps is a subset of many more, at least 100 transatlantic Gbps
Details of IRNC Transatlantic Interconnectivity Anticipated July 1, 2005 1 st OC-192: Abilene GEANT L3 connectivity –OC-192 between HDXc in MAN LAN and HDXc in NetherLight –HDXc ports to be generously provided by UCAID and SURFnet –NOC services to be provided by UCAID and DANTE 2 nd OC-192: L1/L2 connectivity to US Cyberinfrastructure –Continue existing lightpath connections via NetherLight to CERN, UKLight, NorthernLight, CzechLight –Connect to others in Europe as GEANT2 provides more lambdas in 2006 –Partner with TransLight/Pacific Wave, NLR and CA*net4 to build lightpaths to Asia –NOC services to be provided by Argonne/CENIC/PNWGP
Coordination with IRNC Siblings Measure together Share security incidents and issues Assist other related projects Trade tools and best practices Promote MAN LAN as an Open Exchange Serve together on the IRNC Program Management Group Work together at iGrid2005 Workshop and 5 th GLIF Meeting Sept. 26-30, 2005 in San Diego
