1 Slide 1 RMDCN Network Architecture 1 Vienna, RMDCN Steering Group 4-6 June 2008 Remy Giraud ECMWF

2 Slide 2 RMDCN Network Architecture 2 Standard Service Elements Bandwidth for each User Site; User Site-specific service and traffic management through COS mechanisms Service Levels depending on the Service Type selected by User Sites; Secured VPN provided through Multi Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) technology; Access leased line including its provisioning and monitoring; Regular reporting on the VPN performance (Quality of Service indicators); Network Management and Fault management for all Service elements, all provided on a basis. Router Management (PE and CE) – dedicated VPN Owner

3 Slide 3 RMDCN Network Architecture 3 RMDCN Service Elements Connection to the Network -In general, doubling of Frame Relay access speed – IP BANDWIDTH -Speed Access Line - nearest available -Direct (Leased Line, Ethernet) CE – PE or Frame Relay PVC between CE and PE Gold Service Type -Class of Service Backup -Enhanced Resilience: NAS ISDN Backup ISDN Speed limitation (OBS support) -Mission Critical Setup

4 Slide 4 RMDCN Network Architecture 4 MPLS – Strengths and Weaknesses Robust Technology Simpler network management: - Native any to any connectivity - Flexible use of available bandwidth - Simplify the engineering required for site interconnection - Upgradeability Allows to benefit from MPLS developments: - Diversity of access methods (xDSL, Internet, LL…) - Availability of a large panel of access technologies and bandwidths - Built-in management of prioritization mechanism with IP and MPLS Cost improvement on global recurring costs More efficient backup solution better level of resilience MPLS corresponds to market network provider core strategy Traffic partitioning more difficult to implement Site-to-site bandwidth guarantees are difficult to achieve Costs are higher for smaller sites (Costs redistribution mechanism)

5 Slide 5 RMDCN Network Architecture 5 Access Methods - dedicated Access Technologies -Native IP – Direct access (LL) -Frame Relay access, Ethernet access type IP Bandwidth -A unique service on each type of dedicated access -A flexible parameter for the site sizing -From 64 kbps up to 50 Mbps Flexible parameter up to the LL bandwidth IP Bandwidth LL Bandwidth

6 Slide 6 RMDCN Network Architecture 6 What define an access to the MPLS Cloud ? Access Line IP Bandwidth Standards OBS Service Type -GOLD – Data Classes Of Service Standard COS profiles 60% - D1, 30% - D2, 10% - D3 66% - D1, 33% - D2 100% - D2 -SILVER – Unique COS 100% of the IP bandwidth Approved option for the traffic allocation: D1: 75% - ECMWF dissemination and GTS D2: 20% - Aladin/RETIM/LACE/coupling File Transmission D3: 5% - Other (Default)

7 Slide 7 RMDCN Network Architecture 7 COS Management Data classes D1, D2 and D3 -CB-WFQ for all classes (relative weight = relative priority in case of congestion) -No layer 3 shaping: Each data class can use up to the IP bandwidth -No more Frame Relay facilities: Traffic always limited to the IP bandwidth CB-WFQ: Class Based – Weighted Fair Queuing

8 Slide 8 RMDCN Network Architecture 8 APPLICATION CLASSIFICATION RULES From the CE to the Backbone. -OBS has configured the Networks application classification rules that define how the CE router manages the application traffic classification (ie prioritization) for the outgoing traffic. Application traffic is assigned to the corresponding COS class (D1, D2 or D3). Unclassified application traffic will by default be assigned to the by default COS class. From the Network to the CE. -In this direction, the Network takes precedence over the sender User Site (using COS) and automatically classifies the received data in the same COS. If the COS used is not configured on the access, then the received traffic is classified as unknown type of traffic and put in the by default COS configured on the access. The per-COS traffic assignment rules correspond to how traffic flow is mapped to a COS, and is similar to specifying an access control list. If any incoming traffic is received that does not match any of the provided rules, this traffic is sent into the lower level class (might be D2 or D3).

12 Slide 12 RMDCN Network Architecture 12 Traffic Partitioning MPLS IPVPN: -No PVC – No CIR – No guaranteed throughput between source destination -Any-to-any connectivity To limit the any-to-any exposure Access Control Lists can be defined on local routers

13 Slide 13 RMDCN Network Architecture 13 Routing issues Between CE router and NAS router: HSRP Mission Critical Setup: 2 CE routers - HSRP LAN Route redistribution -BGP -EIGRP -OSPF -RIP v1, RIP v2 -Static

14 Slide 14 RMDCN Network Architecture 14 Background – The SRF2 Document Service Request Form 2 -Used by OBS to Collect the technical information for each RMDCN site Internally build the CE routers configurations -ECMWF is the entry point Complete the SRF2 documents on behalf of the RMDCN sites

15 Slide 15 RMDCN Network Architecture 15 The pre-filled OBS SRF2 document -One pre-filled SRF2 by OBS per RMDCN IPVPN site -The focus is on the required technical details pages Background – The SRF2 Document
