3 STAR TAP ITN Router and Routing Policy STAR TAP ITN is AUP Free –Accepts routes & traffic from any participating National Research Network (NRN) (does not include commercial/commodity traffic & routes) –Configured to avoid accidental use of ST ITN for intra- continental/intra-regional routing (e.g. Singaren APAN via ST ITN) –Networks may opt out of exchanging routes with subset of participants (has not been requested to date but is an option)

6 Proposed Abilene Regional Aggregation Areas

7 SUMMARY Problem: –optimizing International Connectivity to North American National Research Networks –not all peering points offer Layer 2 bilateral peering solutions from a single vendor –ensuring International Networks get full connectivity Solution: – extend the STAR TAP International Transit Network to other geographic locations
