1 RedCLARA Status and Projections Florencio Utreras Executive Director of CLARA August 26, 2007

2 ALICE: Creating a LA Research Network connected to Europes GEANT EC Funded project within Program –12.5 Million Euros. 10 Million from EC, 2.5 Million from LA NRENs –3 years –Provides infrastructure, training, seminars, meetings, dissemination, sustainability actions Partners –Coordinator: DANTE –Europe: FCCN, RedIris, Renater, GARR –Latin America: 18 NRENs representing 18 countries May 30, 2003: Project Officialy Started

3 ALICE Approach Invite all 18 Latin American Countries to participate from the initial stage Creation of CLARA, the organization of LA NRENs –18 (100%) LA Countries –Legally established in Uruguay –Management structure in place Establishment of RedCLARA –The Network –The Operations are carried out by CUDI in Mexico –The Engineering is subcontracted to RNP in Brazil –The Information Systems is subcontracted to REUNA in Chile

4 RedCLARA: The LA Network Provided by ALICE November 2006 GEANT

5 The WHREN/LILA Project WHREN: Western Hemisphere Research and Education Network LILA Links Interconnecting Latin America IRNC Project funded by NSF and leaded by FIU and CENIC in the US. CLARA, CUDI, RNP, ANSP from Latin America Acquired IRU of Dark fiber Tijuana-San Diego. Running GbE on top of it. (to Pacific Wave) 2.4 Gbps Sao Paulo-Miami shared with CHEPREO & ANSP (to Atlantic Wave)

6 WHREN/LILA Links San Diego Miami

7 ALICE Project Extension The ALICE Project was scheduled to end on March 31, 2006 The EC approved the Extension until March 31, 2008 A new funding is expected to be approved during 2008 An intermediate plan has been implemented by CLARA and DANTE

8 Backbone links RedCLARA POP in Miami

9 Intercontinental Connections ALICE funded Links LILA funded Links CLARA funded Links

10 Complete Topology CLARA funded Links ALICE funded Links

11 Miami-Tijuana Link Planned

12 RedCLARAs Vision for 2009 Future backbone should be composed at least of CLARA owned dark fiber in the following links –AR-CL –AR-BR The Intercontinental link to Europe should reach 2.5 Gbps during 2010 growing to 1.2 Gbps in 2008 The PA-MX and PA-CL should be at least STM-4 as well as the BR-MX The Node in Miami should be connected to PA at 1.2 Gbps The CLARAs Miami Node should be connected to MX thru the US Internet2 New Network using a 2.5 Gbps Leased Wavelength for backup

13 RedCLARAs Services IPv4 and IPv6 best effort services are the basis Premium IP services with QoS will be available Multicast on IPv4 and IPv6 for all NRENs Secure paths for special applications will be offered Identity Management will be coordinated by CLARA

14 Is this future possible? ALICE2 is crucial for all this to become a reality Collaboration with the US through IRNC Programm is expected to continue Collaboration with Internet2 will make possible additional paths between Panama-Miami-Mexico Other partners may include some Additional funding is being sought Self sustainability is expected in a 5 years time frame
