1 StarLight, the Facility Joe Mambretti, Tom DeFanti, Maxine Brown Alan Verlo, Linda Winkler

2 StarLight: A 1 Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Exchange Abbott Hall, Northwestern Universitys Chicago downtown campus StarLight hosts electronic switching and routing for United States national and international Research and Education networks Since November 2003, StarLight has been optically switching wavelengths between Chicago and Amsterdam

3 StarLight History NSF-funded support of STAR TAP ( ) and STAR TAP2/ StarLight ( ), and the High Performance International Internet Services program (Euro-Link, TransPAC, MIRnet and AMPATH).

4 StarLight, the Facility *Flexible* facility for scientists by scientists; input from: –E-science and C-science researchers –Technical leaders of NSF cyberinfrastructure –Academic national and international R&E networks –Next-generation Federal networks –Metro/regional efforts A GE and 10 GE exchange for R&E Networks A MEMS-switched Optical Research Network Exchange A specialized co-location space for new implementations and integrations of infrastructure Home to fiber and circuits from SBC, Qwest, AT&T, Global Crossing, Level3, T-Systems, Looking Glass, RCN, and I- WIRE, custom integrators, like MCI for DREN

8 StarLight Provided Major iGrid 2005 Support

9 OptIPuter: Major NSF-funded Research Initiative Utilizing StarLight Capabilities

10 The OptIPuter Project – Removing Bandwidth as an Obstacle In Data Intensive Sciences An NSF-funded award that focuses on developing technology to enable the real-time collaboration and visualization of very-large time- varying volumetric datasets for the earth sciences and the biosciences OptIPuter is examining a new model of computing whereby ultra-high- speed networks form the backplane of a global computer NIH Biomedical Informatics NSF EarthScope and ORION Research Network

11 OptIPuter is a Global Virtual Computer Hardware: clusters of computers that act as giant storage, compute or visualization peripherals, in which each node of each cluster is attached at 1 or 10GigE to a backplane of ultra-high-speed networks Software: Advanced middleware and application toolkits are being developed for lightpath management, data management and mining, visualization, and collaboration Commodity GigE Switch Fibers or Lambdas

12 The Scalable Adaptive Graphics Environment To Manage Visual Content on Scalable Tiled Displays SAGE runs on LambdaVision, a display-rich collaborative work environment (11x5 LCDs)

13 Moving Data Over these Networks: Ultra-High-Speed Transport Protocols Reliable Blast UDP designed for ultra-high-speed bulk data delivery applications Developed originally in 2000 Achieved 18Gb/s out of 20Gb/s available bandwidth on TeraGrid in LambdaStream designed for ultra-high-speed streaming applications that need high throughput but low latency and low jitter (such as streaming graphics) Developed in 2003/04 LambdaStream achieves this by adaptive rate adjustment AND attempting to predict the CAUSE of loss using techniques from Mobile Adhoc Networks (MANETs).
