1 Lambda Networking in TWAREN New Architecture Design 2006 / 01 / 25 NCHC, Taiwan
2 TWAREN New Architecture TWAREN is the only national academic and research backbone in Taiwan that provides layer one optical lightpaths and layer three routing and peerings. The lease of circuit is going to be due in August 2006. More demands of integrating optical lightpaths with IP services. Packets are transmitted over Lightpaths between GigaPOP and core nodes Multi-point communication among core nodes is enabled by MPLS/VPLS technology in order to save the bandwidth
3 Design Considerations Use current equipment, to save cost To provide services of virtual networks (multiple point to multiple point) and dedicated lightpaths Better performance No single point-of-failure, highly fault tolerant Scalable
4 TWAREN Nowadays Production Network Lease-based optical backbone at 20 Gbps. Dual vendor-provisioning at 10 Gbps each. Optical Network Acquired dark fiber segments.

7 TANET/TWAREN IP Service TANET is the academic network connecting colleges, high schools and elementary schools in Taiwan. TWAREN production network provides research backbone connecting among universities, research centers and international I2 partners The new architecture will provide two virtual networks to meet the basic service.

16 Conclusions In this new architecture, IP and Optical network are integrated into one. With MPLS+L2 switches in core nodes, multi- point VLAN service is achieved. MPLS LSPs are configured with fast-reroute option for link protection. For lightpaths among GigaPOP and core node, the automatic protection are configured. When core node fails, manual re-route of lightpath can be done.
