David Lassner University of Hawaii firstname.lastname@example.org Update from Paradise: Advanced Networking in Hawaii
Home of the ALOHA system and protocol Home of PACCOM, the Pacific Rim project that first connected Japan, Korea, Australia, New Zealand … Hawaiis Proud History
Hawaii-US Mainland Connectivity Prior to 2001 DS3 market price ~ $2m / yr OC-3 unavailable at any price
2001 was A Very Good Year Southern Cross Cable Network Japan-U.S. Cable Network
Hawaii at a Glance Incumbent telco (Verizon) with 100% digital switching Two competitive facilities- based telcos Vibrant ISP marketplace >1/2 of population on-line Every Public School Connected Extremely high Cable TV penetration - with VoD Digital wireless TV on Oahu DSL and Cable Modem services compete for broadband market, with fixed wireless on its way Two major providers of on-island fiber facilities Two (going on three?) inter-island fiber systems Access to JUSCN, SCCN and TPC5
Who Peers IN Hawaii PMRF Mauna Kea Observatories Maui Supercomputer, Haleakala Observatories University of Hawaii Intl Pacific Research Center ALL Public Higher Education International Scientific Assets: Mauna Kea, Haleakala, Maui Supercomputer… ALL Public K12 Education State and County Governments Most ISPs (Tier 1 Problematic) US Dept of Defense Research & Engineering (DREN)
How We Peer in Hawaii TODAY PMRF Mauna Kea Observatories Maui Supercomputer, Haleakala Observatories University of Hawaii Intl Pacific Research Center OC-3 Inter-island Microwave Leased OC-3 services Gigabit ethernet over DWDM on Institutional Network
Pending Internal Connectivity PMRF Mauna Kea Observatories Maui Supercomputer, Haleakala Observatories University of Hawaii Intl Pacific Research Center DWDM-based Intra-island I-Nets DWDM-based Inter-island I-Net (initially OC-3) Exploration of 2.5 / 10 Gigabit links between islands
CURRENT Hawaii Trans-Pacific Links Southern Cross Cable Network Japan-U.S. Cable Network OC-3 Peering with AARNet OC-3 Peering with Abilene (Seattle) OC-3 Link to DREN (Seattle)
NEXT Hawaii Trans-Pacific Links Southern Cross Cable Network Japan-U.S. Cable Network (2x) OC-3 Peering with APAN (2x) OC-3 to California Pacific Wave?
Scientific Drivers Biggest research university within 2000 miles:-) Mauna Kea - the best observatory site in the world Maui Supercomputer, Haleakala Observatories & the US DoD
University of Hawaii: 10 campuses & 5 centers on 6 islands
Next Generation Distance Learning System 25 sites in 15 locations on 6 islands Shares the institutional IP network, OC3 + No central switching -- the network is the hub MPEG2-over-IP for high-quality video RAT multicast audio for continuous open-mic audio among all sites in a session Any site can see any other site IP Multicast for efficient use of bandwidth IP QoS to ensure priority of video Custom application manages network services In production January 2002!
