1 RTH Washington Fred Branski, Chief, Performance Monitoring, Support & Data Management Branch Office of the Chief Information Officer NOAAs National Weather Service OPAG-ISS Meeting Sep 18-22, 2006 Fred Branski, Chief, Performance Monitoring, Support & Data Management Branch Office of the Chief Information Officer NOAAs National Weather Service OPAG-ISS Meeting Sep 18-22, 2006

2 Taking the pulse of the planet NWSTG/RTH Functions The NWSTG is the central communication facility of the NWS; the primary acquisition and distribution center for NWS data and products; the primary acquisition and distribution center for international data and products to meet WMO, ICAO and bi-laterally agreed US requirements; A major data exchange hub for NOAA and other agency data and products. The NWSTG is the central communication facility of the NWS; the primary acquisition and distribution center for NWS data and products; the primary acquisition and distribution center for international data and products to meet WMO, ICAO and bi-laterally agreed US requirements; A major data exchange hub for NOAA and other agency data and products.

3 Taking the pulse of the planet NWSTG Functional Overview The NWSTG includes WMO Regional Telecommunication Hub (RTH) Washington ICAO OPMET Databank (KWBCYMYX) the ASOS Operations and Monitoring Center (AOMC) Operational oversight of U.S. federal automated surface observing systems the AWIPS Network Control Facility (NCF) AWIPS is the main NWS system which supports the NWS forecast and warning mission requirement The NCF is the central communications hub and technical support center for AWIPS The NWSTG includes WMO Regional Telecommunication Hub (RTH) Washington ICAO OPMET Databank (KWBCYMYX) the ASOS Operations and Monitoring Center (AOMC) Operational oversight of U.S. federal automated surface observing systems the AWIPS Network Control Facility (NCF) AWIPS is the main NWS system which supports the NWS forecast and warning mission requirement The NCF is the central communications hub and technical support center for AWIPS

9 Taking the pulse of the planet Status for RTG/BTG NOAANet Status RTG IOC - June 19, 2006 RTG FOC – 3Q 2006 NOAANet OC-3 connection to BTG – June 2006 BTG IOC / OC-12 – 4Q 2006 All projects end – May 31, 2007 RTG IOC - June 19, 2006 RTG FOC – 3Q 2006 NOAANet OC-3 connection to BTG – June 2006 BTG IOC / OC-12 – 4Q 2006 All projects end – May 31, 2007

10 Taking the pulse of the planet Status for RTG/BTG NOAANet Status NOAANet Transition: –Internal underway, NWS regions, NCF, NESDIS soon –External – begin December 01, 2006 –Initially two Access Points One within the RTG facility but external to the infrastructure One at Parsippany New York – GTS, AFTN / FAA / Hawaii / Micronesia, Others??? Possibly Atlanta, Chicago, Tacoma, ???

12 Taking the pulse of the planet For Watches and Warnings: Avg time (seconds) to queue to outbound FEP: 6.16 Max time (seconds) to queue to outbound FEP: 182 (3.03 minutes) Avg time (seconds) to send from outbound FEP: Max time (seconds) to send from outbound FEP: 3838 (63.96 minutes Avg time (seconds) to queue to outbound FEP: 6.16 Max time (seconds) to queue to outbound FEP: 182 (3.03 minutes) Avg time (seconds) to send from outbound FEP: Max time (seconds) to send from outbound FEP: 3838 (63.96 minutes Note: Not all connections are moved to the RTG infrastructure. Those still moving through legacy systems have the longest delays. We still see occasional spikes in the RTG processing stream which we are investigating with IBM to determine the cause and resolve.

13 Taking the pulse of the planet For all other data (except Watches and Warnings): Avg time (seconds) to queue to outbound FEP: 6.97 Max time (seconds) to queue to outbound FEP: 236 (3.93 minutes) Avg time (seconds) to send from outbound FEP: Max time (seconds) to send from outbound FEP: 4039 (67.32 minutes) Avg time (seconds) to queue to outbound FEP: 6.97 Max time (seconds) to queue to outbound FEP: 236 (3.93 minutes) Avg time (seconds) to send from outbound FEP: Max time (seconds) to send from outbound FEP: 4039 (67.32 minutes) Note: Not all connections are moved to the RTG infrastructure.
