1 University of Illinois at Chicago The Future of STAR TAP: Enabling e-Science Research Thomas A. DeFanti Principal Investigator, STAR TAP Director, Electronic Visualization Laboratory

2 University of Illinois at Chicago What is StarLight? StarLight is an advanced optical infrastructure and proving ground for network services optimized for high-performance applications 710 N. Lake Shore Drive, Chicago Abbott Hall, Northwestern University Chicago view from 710

3 University of Illinois at Chicago What is StarLight? StarLight is jointly managed and engineered by International Center for Advanced Internet Research (iCAIR), Northwestern University Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL), University of Illinois at Chicago Mathematics and Computer Science Division, Argonne National Laboratory

4 University of Illinois at Chicago StarLight Infrastructure StarLight is a large research-friendly co-location facility with space, power and fiber that is being made available to university and national network collaborators as a point of presence in Chicago

5 University of Illinois at Chicago StarLight Legacy Infrastructure

6 University of Illinois at Chicago StarLight Infrastructure StarLight is a 1GigE and 10GigE switch/router facility for high-performance access to participating networks

7 University of Illinois at Chicago StarLight Infrastructure Fiber/Equipment at StarLight (2001) Existing Fiber: SBC/Ameritech and AT&T Soon to be installed: Qwest, MFN, Global Crossing, Teleglobe, and Level(3) StarLight Equipment, Summer 2001: –Cisco 6509 with GigE (plans for 10GigE) –STAR TAP DiffServ Router (Cisco 7507) –IPv6 Router –Juniper M10 (GigE and OC-12 interfaces) –Cisco LS1010 with OC-12 interfaces –Data mining cluster with GigE NICs –Visualization/video server cluster with GigE NICs 15 racks initially for partner co-location

8 University of Illinois at Chicago StarLight Infrastructure …Soon, Star Light will be an optical switching facility for wavelengths

9 University of Illinois at Chicago StarLight Connections The Netherlands (SURFnet) is bringing two OC-12c POS from Amsterdam to StarLight on July 1, 2001 and a 2.4Gbps lambda to StarLight on September 1, 2001 Canada (CA*net3/4) will soon connect via GigE I-WIRE, a State-of-Illinois-funded dark-fiber GigE, 10GigE, and DWDM effort involving Illinois institutions: Argonne National Laboratory, National Center for Supercomputing Applications/University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, University of Illinois at Chicago, Northwestern University, University of Chicago and Illinois Institute of Technology NSF Distributed Terascale Facility (DTF) 40Gb network (~2002) STAR TAP (AADS NAP) via two OC-12c ATM circuits

12 University of Illinois at Chicago StarLight Services StarLight encourages collaborations: To provide tools and techniques for (university) customer-controlled 10 Gigabit network flows To create general control mechanisms from emerging toolkits, such as Globus, to provide Grid [network] resource access and allocation services. To provide a range of new tools, such as GMPLS and OBGP, for designing, configuring and managing optical networks and their components To provide a new generation of tools for appropriate monitoring and measurements at multiple levels

13 University of Illinois at Chicago StarLight Plans Metropolitan optical switching at 10Gb International switching hub, replicated in Amsterdam and other places Host advanced experiments –Ultra DWDM –Lambda conversion –Optical routing –Ultra high-definition video and VR –Terascale computing –Petabyte data mining

14 University of Illinois at Chicago StarLight Thanks StarLight planning, research, collaborations, and outreach efforts at the University of Illinois at Chicago are made possible, in part, by funding to EVL from: –National Science Foundation (NSF) awards EIA , EIA , ANI , and ANI –NSF Partnerships for Advanced Computational Infrastructure (PACI) cooperative agreement ACI to the National Computational Science Alliance –State of Illinois I-WIRE Program –UIC Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and College of Engineering Northwestern University for providing space, engineering and management Argonne National Laboratory for StarLight and I-WIRE network engineering and planning leadership NCSA for DTF opportunities To Steve Goldstein of NSF, Bill St. Arnaud of CANARIE and Kees Neggers of SURFnet for global leadership
