David R. Richardson, Mgr. Network Engineering University of Washington Pacific Rim Networking Meeting Honolulu, Hawaii February 21-22, 2002
The Pacific Northwest Gigapop is the PNWs access point to Internet2, high performance U.S. Federal Networks, and high speed commodity Internet R&D testbed inviting national and international experimentation with advanced Internet-based applications Located in Seattle, Washington USA Pacific Northwest Gigapop
Pacific Northwest Gigapop System
Support of Advanced Applications Microsoft Land Speed Record UW Internet HDTV Measurement projects (GigaTCP, AMP, Surveyor…) ISIe/Tektronix Uncompressed HDTV ResearchChannel …
Pacific Wave is a service of the Pacific Northwest Gigapop. –High speed peering point for regional and international networks –Complement of Abilene and CA*net3 International Transit Network services –Open peering point for participant-managed bilateral peerings Pacific Wave
Pacific Wave Architecture An ATM free zone! Based on a pair of Gigabit Ethernet switches providing two subnets Switch PNW Router PNW Router Abilene CA*net3 AARNet...
Peering at Pacific Wave 1.Peer with the Pacific Northwest Gigapop 2.Peer with Abilene, CA*net3 and receive their ITN service to reach other networks 3.Peer with other Pacific Wave participants Switch PNW Router PNW Router Abilene CA*net3 AARNet...
Advantages of Pacific Wave Close to major Pacific cable landing sites Located in incumbent telecommunications carrier grade hotel –easy access to co-lo services –easy access to fiber-meet-me-room –easy access to full West Coast fiber grid Gigabit Ethernet is high speed, low cost, low maintenance –No PNWGP staff involvement required to setup your peerings; no ATM PVCs or mandated routing policy Switches implement PIM-SM snooping for increased multicast efficiency
24 x 7 Network Operations Center Redundant environmentals (DC, HVAC) PNWGP Commodity Internet Services –Engineered and delivered via four diverse tier- one vendors –Vendors chosen after exhaustive review of capacity, support, peering, etc. –Diverse geographic connectivity for commodity services –1.45Gbps throughput (under expansion) Advantages of Pacific Wave (cont.)
