1 AICTEC 30 November February 2002 East-West Center University of Hawaii, Honolulu Australias Involvement and Plans George McLaughlin

2 AARNet – Australias Academic & Research Network Has PoPs in each of Australias State and Territory Capital Cities (8 in all) Provides commodity as well as R&E connections to member universities and research bodies Does not receive Australian Govt Funding for its operations – ie is fully user-pays Is required to fully comply with the Australian telecommunications regulatory regime – holds a carrier licence

3 Canberra Darwin Adelaide Perth Brisbane Sydney Hobart AARNet Backbone Melbourne

4 AARNet Pty Ltd (APL) Not-for-profit company limited by shares Shareholders are the universities and CSIRO Shareholders are also clients R&E network expansion funded from a surcharge on commodity traffic

5 APL Structure APL Board Executive Director Business Unit Development Unit Production Unit AARNet Advisory Committee Technical Working Parties Project Implementation Groups Shareholders - Members Members & Clients

6 Australian Advanced Networks Program Three programs funded by Aust Govt– total grants $AU37million, leveraged funding ~$AU100million GrangeNet – consortium with AARNet as lead agency also APAC, DSTC, Powertel and Cisco 2x2.5Gbps wavelengths between Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne based on Cisco DWDM, and 7600 series routers, GbE tails, advanced communication and grid services, associated middleware to support a variety of communities of users CeNTIE network research backbone Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth (10Gbps lambda), local fibre in Sydney and Perth MNet – Focus on advanced wireless technologies

7 GrangeNet - Open Infrastructure for Australia consortium – AARNet APAC DSTC Cisco Powertel Grid Services Advanced Communications Services Specialised, Regional and International Networks User Communities GrangeNet Network Health Bio- informatics Film & Media etc Virtual Museums Net CeNTIE QARN etc Education Internet2 Canarie APAN

9 GrangeNet Aims Develop next generation of communications networks and services (AARNet3-4) Provide infrastructure to integrate high- performance computing and visualisation systems (APAC Grid) Support distributed User Communities with demanding applications Promote cooperation between industry and research organisations Facilitate business development based on advanced communications products and services

10 International Research and Education Networks AARNet has deployed its own capacity to the advanced networks of North America, and later to the Asia Pacific – from these also to Europe and the rest of the world Is now peering directly peer directly at PacificWave with: Abilene CA*Net3 TransPac TANet ESNet DREN Participates in ITN Future Plans

11 AARNets International Connections Current and Planned Singapore South Asia Middle East Europe APAN Abilene CANet GEANT StarTap Fiji Global GRID Forum South America AARNet International Transit Network Japan New Zealand Taiwan Hawaii SLO Seattle PNG Sydney Perth

12 International Science Collaborations Global Grid and AP Grid Forums Health applications Astronomy Peer-to-Peer computing Access Grids Location independence and need to access resources and collaborate with others elsewhere in the world

13 Technology deployment End-to-end Performance Measurement and Monitoring AARNet has had extensive passive measurement/monitoring for some time, now participating in NLANR AMP Multicast implemented, multicast peering with Abilene, wider distribution within AARNet and GrangeNet next – facilitated Australias participation in SC2001 IPv6 – rollout in next few months Voice-over-IP National deployment already in place, switching 16,000 calls per day – wide distribution of H323 gatekeepers within Australia, QoS deployed, toll quality – also working on SIP Video-over-IP Initial H323 deployment successful, scaling to national rollout – will work with VideNet, I2 Commons, SurfNet

14 New Carrier Services AARNet now has a carrier licence and this has the potential to provide other opportunities resulting from nominated carrier declarations and inter carrier agreements Has commissioned a fibre-layer to lay new ducts and fibre, owned by AARNet Acts as nominated carrier on behalf of Members Can gain access to ducts and towers of other carriers Working with power utililities and rail authorities to explore opportunities (use of fibre and rights of way) Intercarrier agreements and wholesale costs
