GÉANT and The Future of Pan-European Networking APAN, 4 th July 2004 John Boland CEO HEAnet Member of DANTE Board of Directors
Outline of Presentation HEAnet as European NREN GN2 – Proposing the Next Generation of European Networking –Financial Background –Capacity –Wavelengths & Fibre options Major Joint Research Topics Application Example
Basic Issues in GN2 Project Financial Arrangements Capacity Wavelengths & Fibre Questions Research Activities
GÉANT GÉANT: One element of a strategy GRIDS IPv6, Optical,... All research disciplines Very demanding communities Research on networking Technology Advanced Experimental Disruptive emerging next generation Internet
Financial Arrangements EC support for Geant successor Integrated Project –Network Infrastructure –Developmental Elements Funded by the NRENS and the EC Framework Programme 6 (FP6)
Extending the Range of Connections Initiatives to improve connectivity with other world regions - –Principally Mediterranean, South America and Asia Pacific Global Connectivity for joint network experimentation E.g. Russia will be upgraded from current 622Mbps to 2.5Gbps to Moscow
EC & NREN funded 186 MEuro over 4 years –Starting end 2004 93 Meuro available from EC 93 MEuro payable by NRENs –assuming 50% co-funding –Subscriptions are based on Bandwidth contracted for
Example Subscription E.g. under Geant /GN-1 HEAnet pays approx 900KEuro for dual 2.5Gbps, linked to London and Frankfurt Subscriptions range from ca. 1.5MEuro to 4MEuro in non competitively developed regions Currently Geant international 10Gbps widely available in Western Europe for under 2MEuro 50% Rebated by EC after Claims by Dante
Relative Cost of Connectivity Compared with Number of Suppliers
Some indications from Market in Europe 40Gbps not widely commercially available Cost of Interfaces for 40Gbps v. high Multiple 10Gbps may be more flexible solution Would allow Hybrid Network –Mix of IP and non-IP –Terminate on Routers and Switches
Some exciting possibilities Tender shows Charges for 10Gbps Lambdas are still reducing Additional Wavelengths will be even cheaper Multiple, dual-homed 10Gbps affordable in a number of locations 10Gbps Lambda possible building block Provide switched GEs to high-end users
Hybrid Infrastructure solution ? Enable to present to users, combination of point-to-point and IP services Interesting Technical Challenge !
Managed Wavelengths and Dark Fibre Whether to invest in dark fibre IRUs and transmission equipment/management and maintenance In terms of costs - –May not be advantage in Western Europe –Less competitive markets : more offers of dark fibre in Central and Eastern Europe
BASIC PROCUREMENT SEGMENTATION Major Pan-European Providers Dedicated Dark Fibre Offers Regional Providers
What is the Correct Architecture? Is there a Common View of Control and Resource Allocation ? Can we Implement a Managed Environment Across Multiple Networks? Is Interface Definition Well Resourced and Understood? The Technical Challenges
Service Activities SA1 : Procurement –Transmission capacity, PoP equipt, maintenance & operations SA2 : Network Operations and Basic Services –Initial basic set of services, developed as technical prog. SA3 End-to-End Quality of Service –Guaranteed for specific traffic & specialist projects SA4 Connecting Other World Regions –Greater consolidation of global connectivity, co-operation initiatives for seamless work with world regions
Networking Activities NA1 Management of GN2 NA2 GN2 Dissemination Activities NA3 Support for Users & User Consultancy NA4 NREN Development & Support NA5 Foresight Study NA6 Co-ordination of RTD Activities
