Abilene Update

• Tuesday

• 3:00 – 4:00 p.m.

• Salon C

Abilene changes relevant to international peers

• IPv6 and multicast transit traffic• Background: Abilene peers with commercial IPv6 and

multicast networks• This is an exception to our policy not to peer with commercial

networks• As a way to encourage commercial deployment of IPv6 and

multicast• Change: no longer announcing non-customer routes to

commercial IPv6 and multicast peers• Rationale: some commercial peers complaining because it is

not standard commercial practice to announce non-customers• Impact: some international peers may have lost previously

seen routes to commercial v6 and multicast networks via Abilene

Abilene changes, cont’d

• Transit to “fednets”•US federal government research networks


•Abilene ITN service initial could not provide fednet to non-US net transit

•This became possible early last year•Where direct peering not possible•Where requested by both peers•Some fednets have restrictions or special

requirements for enabling peering

Abilene routing policies

• Abilene peering with Routeviews

• Objective: to help provide global R&E network community better insight into Abilene routing policies

• As Chris Robb’s presentation mentioned, contemplating other changes that could be made

HOPI Testbed International connectivity

• HOPI update•Tuesday, 4:30 – 5:30 p.m. Salons I/II/III

• Hybrid Optical Packet Infrastructure (HOPI) initiative•Testbed: Abilene + 10G wave on NLR


HOPI Testbed International Connectivity

• Within US, available at:•PacificWave•StarLight•MAN LAN•NGIX-East

• 10G connection to London to support collaboration with similar European efforts•MAN LAN in NYC to GEANT2 PoP in London•Connected in London real soon now

GEANT2 – Internet2 Service Trial: switched point to point services

• GEANT2 services include switched, point-to-point GigE-based services – Bundled as part of core subscription for NRENs

• Internet2 to offer similar services– Currently via HOPI testbed– Ultimately via Newnet

• Desire to trial technical and organization model for making these services available across both GEANT2 and Internet2 communities

The details

• June – December 2006: service “trial” period– Invite connectors/users in both communities

to request service to connector/user in the other community

• GEANT2 users: those with access to GE or wavelength services

• Internet2 community: those with access to HOPI testbed


• Financial model: costs for service lie where they fall– E.g. GEANT2 users follow their cost model for

GEANT2-carried portion; same for Internet2 service users

– Trans-atlantic costs considered sunk for now; will examine as understand demand

• Will equip at least two of the 10Gbps links in place or planned between Internet2 and GEANT2 to support
