StarLight, TransLight And the Global Lambda Integrated Facility (GLIF) Tom DeFanti, Dan Sandin, Maxine Brown, Jason Leigh, Alan Verlo, University of Illinois at Chicago Joe Mambretti, Northwestern University Linda Winkler, Caren Litvanyi, Argonne National Laboratory Bill St. Arnaud, CANARIE (Canada) Kees Neggers, SURFnet (Netherlands) Cees de Laat, UvAmsterdam
*Lights *Lights are bandwidth concentrators and exchanges (StarLight, NetherLight, UKLight, NorthernLight, Pacific Wave, NEOLight…) *Lights also deliver Grid cyberinfrastructure services such as computing, storage and visualization support *Lights disrupt old pricing structures from the traditional telcos, which kept the prices high *Lights will deal with big data streams and map them economically to the least expensive services they need
StarLight, the Facility A *flexible* facility for scientists *by* scientists The worlds largest GE and 10 GE exchange for R&E Production Networks A MEMS-switched Optical Research Network Exchange A specialized colocation space for new implementations and integrations of infrastructure: –40 racks for networking and computing, data management and visualization support equipment 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 Advanced engineering and resource coordinators

What has Changed Since 2001? Waves became available at drastically reduced prices –NYC to AMS OC-192 $0.50/minute current pricing 1GE and 10GE switching/routing became possible and desirable StarLight constructed as to serve international, national and regional electronic and optical peering needs StarLight/Euro-Link partners formed GLIF C-scientists and E-scientists are creating new tools together so that future applications will be empowered to use self-collected information and make grid- compatible requests for resources
Thank You! StarLight and Euro-Link planning, research, collaborations, and outreach efforts are made possible, in major part, by funding from: –National Science Foundation (NSF) awards ANI-9980480, ANI- 9730202, EIA-9802090, EIA-9871058, ANI-0225642, and EIA-0115809 –State of Illinois I-WIRE Program, and major UIC cost sharing –Northwestern University for providing space, engineering and management NSF/CISE/ANIR and DoE/Argonne National Laboratory for StarLight and I-WIRE network engineering and design Bill St. Arnaud of CANARIE, Kees Neggers of SURFnet, Olivier Martin of CERN and Harvey Newman of CalTech for networking leadership Larry Smarr of Cal-(IT) 2 for I-WIRE and OptIPuter leadership.
