  • NLR - BackgroundNational LambdaRail is a non-profit corporation created (2003) by a consortium of major regional US R&E networks in conjunction with CISCO Systems and Internet2 Identified the need for experimental and research oriented network(s)Research networking AND network researchTook advantage of dark fiber price trough (minimum?) to acquire national footprint 20yr IRUsPartnered with CISCO to deploy 40 lambda DWDM networkProvides a range of services and networks to its members over this infrastructureParallel effort by regional networks (RONS) has developed similar capability for regional connectivity and distribution (e.g. CENIC, LEARN, FLR, )

  • NLR InfrastructureOver 11,000 route miles of fiberOwned Fiber: 20-yr IRUs-Level 3, Wiltel, AT&TLayer 1 Optics: Cisco 15808s and 15454s supporting up to 40 10 Gbps lambdas LANPHYLayer 2: Cisco 6509 switches for Gigabit EthernetLayer 3: Cisco CRS-1 routers for IPWavelengths available for experimental or production networksResources dedicated for research use

    CCIRN 2007

  • NLR ServicesNetwork of Networks Multiple types of networks and services availableMain ServicesWaveNet (layer 1 or 1.5) point-to-point lambdas actually these are currently point-to-point circuits consisting of concatenated (OEO) dedicated wave segmentsFrameNet(s) (layer 2) Dedicated and shared Ethernet based services. Managed or best effort BW. Point-point or multi-point.PacketNet(s) (layer 3) IP based networkOther ServicesCo-location, Remote Hands, Fiber IRUs

    CCIRN 2007

  • WaveNet OverviewETE circuits consisting of 10G or OC-192 wave segmentsDedicated waves purchased by regionals or research projects Research waves, supported by CISCO, made available in support of approved research projectsQuickstart waves (if available and preemptible for fail-over)

    CCIRN 2007

  • Infrastructure Update - WaveNetSteady demand for WaveNet services NLR has allocated 199 WaveNet circuits to date126 Active circuits (75 customer Circuits, 51 backbone circuits for L2, L3, etc) 32 Misc circuits - spare, unallocated, reserved, SC0741 Decommissioned circuits (includes SC related circuits, circuits no long in use by customers, etc. )

  • FrameNet OverviewNational Exchange Fabric ServiceNEF is a single VLAN and broadcast domain that extends to every member Allows members to arrange bi-lateral peeringsEvery member gets a single 1GigE interface on their local NLR FrameNet node for use of the NEF servicePoint-to-point, Dedicated Bandwidth ServiceMembers may order private VLANs to connect 2 different locations together, with dedicated bandwidth, for a circuit-like serviceBandwidth available from 100Mbps to 10GbpsPoint-to-multipoint, Best Effort ServiceMembers may order private VLANs to multiple locations for a circuit-like serviceTraffic on these VLANs carried through the network on a best effort basis

    CCIRN 2007

  • FrameNetDemand continues to grow, 10 GE interfaces and non-dedicated bandwidth are popular86 Active VLANs, both dedicated and non-dedicatedCurrently primary use of dedicated service is for Layer 3 backup connections Interest by research groupsCollaborative multi-point projectsExperiment on non-dedicated service, understand utilization, then migrate to dedicated service.New Services being Developed, in particular on-demand dedicated servicesAdding FrameNet connection to MANLAN switch to support layer2 connectivity to international networks
