Presentacio Fi2 Cat Sept 2008

  1. 1. Fundació i2CAT Recerca i Innovació en Xarxa Barcelona, 2008
  2. 2. Fundació i2CAT i2CAT is a non for profit Foundation for Research & Innovation on Next Generation Internet
  3. 3. Objectives  The i2CAT Foundation is a collaborative platform for the research and innovation  The i2CAT key model is based on the collaboration between the public, private sectors and the academic environment, setting up an innovative Triple Helix model (Loet Leydesdorff) in the Information and Communication Technologies.
  4. 4. The i2CAT Foundation & the University  The Foundation integrates 13 research groups from the three Catalan universities that are on the i2CAT Foundation patronate board.
  5. 5. i2CAT’s Board  The board is composed by 5 public institutions, 3 universities and 9 private companies from the telecommunications and media sector.
  6. 6. Main research lines
  7. 7. i2CAT’s Clusters  The innovation projects are developed within a cluster organization framework, involving companies and institutions who perform their activity within the same sector or share innovation goals.
  8. 8. Experimental research platforms The i2CAT Foundation provides an experimental research infrastructure to support R&D&I projects. It is based on a distributed research and innovation lab, which interconnects main public and private research institutions and universities. • Advanced Multimedia Experimental Platform • Optical Experimental Network Platform • IP Experimental Network Platform
  9. 9. Connected institutions at the NOC
  10. 10. Core optical nodes
  11. 11. Optical experimental Infrastructure

  16. 16. Research Project (2008-2009 ) I Research – TRILOGY (fuTuRe Internet technoLOGY) VIRTUALIZATION
  17. 17. PHOSPHORUS (FP6) Project. Network Tech.  Objective  Provide control and provisioning systems for the establishment of end-to-end services, under demand and in a multi domain approach.  Trate the network infrastructure as a grid resource.
  18. 18. FEDERICA (FP7) Project. Network Tech.  Objective  Deploy at European scale an experimental infrastructure for the furture internet researchers, independent of the service infrastructure of GÉANT2 (this initiative is similar to the GENI approach).  Principles of the experimental FEDERICA infrastructure  Create a neutral and agnostic infrastructure.  Create slices. An slice is a set of (virtual) network and computational resources  Give to the user the complete control of an slice, in order to allow the researcher to experiment with any type of protocol and application.
  19. 19. powered by ARGIA: IaaS for optical networks DELIVERING INFRASTRUCTURE AS A SERVICE TO OPTICAL NETWORKS Parallel network plaforms OPTICAL NETWORK ADMINISTRATOR (optical network manager, infrastructure provider): sharing physical susbstrates  Partition your infrastructure and decide what users can control what resources  The Resource Management Center allows you to monitor which users are using which parts of your network and, at the same time, manage and control your network as a traditional NMS  Untagged Ethernet, TDM (SONET and SDH), WDM and Fiber technologies supported APN ADMINISTRATOR (infrastructure integrator, service provider):  Get access to the control of various infrastructure resources (optical switches, links) from several network providers  Integrate the infrastructure resources into your management domain and provide services to yourself or to your end users END USER (human, network enabled application):  Access the bandwidth on demand service to create end to end circuit advance reservations  Create preconfigured network scenarios that can be put in place when invoked  Make your applications interact with the network through the Argia Web Service APIs Argia current status Supported equipment: •Nortel OME 6500, Nortel HDXc, Nortel OPTera Metro 5200. •Cisco ONS 15454, Cisco ONS 15600 (under development) • Wonesys Proteus ROADM • Calient Diamondwave PXC (under development) Argia Deployment: •CANARIE: Evaluating it for the production network. •CANARIE, Starlight: for the HPDMnet project Resource List Editor Physical Network Editor • CRC, i2cat: for the PHOSPHORUS project • Ongoing conversations with PacificWave, End to End Circuit KRLight, Reservation GUI Virtualize Link Wizard - - -
  20. 20. powered by The MANTICORE project RESOURCE MANAGEMENT CENTER FOR LOGICAL IP NETWORKS  CONFIGURE PHYSICAL AND LOGICAL ROUTERS lo0: lo0: The MANTICORE Resource Management Center allows network administrators and users to configure their physical and logical routers AS10 ge-3/0/0 static lo0: lo0: eBGP AS20  SHARE RESOURCES The same physical network substrate can be partitioned into ge-3/0/0 several resources (e.g. logical routers) that can be controlled by different users. ge-3/0/0 ge-3/0/0 ge-2/0/0 ge-2/0/0  CREATE LOGICAL IP NETWORKS Create logical IP Networks as resources ge-1/0/0 ge-0/0/0 and configure the internal (OSPF, RIP, iBGP, static) and external routing (eBGP, static) ge-1/0/0 AS1 ge-0/0/0  PEER WITH OTHER NETWORKS Different users can configure their logical IP AREA 0 Networks in order to peer with each other , by using the BGP protocol or by adding static routes lo0: DEMO SCENARIO Physical Network Substrate • 1 Physical Router (Juniper M7i), HEAnet Domain Short Storyboard • HEAnet admin: • Creates five logical routers (LRs) • Creates links between LRs • Creates two IP Networks: AS10 and AS1 Resource List Editor • Adds three LRs to AS1 and one to AS10 • Configures OSPF, iBGP and eBGP in AS1 • Adds a static route between AS10 and AS1 • Exports one LR to i2cat Physical Network Editor • i2cat admin: • Creates an IP network (AS20) and adds the LR Virtualize Interface received from HEAnet BGP Wizard Configuration • Configures eBGP in AS 20 Wizard - - - - - -
  21. 21. IPsphere : Framework that allows the end user to compose and manage his own network, selecting and orchestrating several resources with QoS requirements from different Providers. Providers (Element Owners) publishes the elements (resources) that can be used by the End-Users in order to fulfill his requirements. OPENsphere is the first open source implementation of IPsphere. The OPENsphere will be deployed at the CONTENTsphere field trial. For this field trial an orchestration of an end-to-end connection with QoS requirements will be showcased. User request will be traduced by SMS Admin as a service script ( where have been chosen a set of connectivity elements that performs the entirely path requested by user) . This script will be executed by SMS Parent invoking several operations to different SMS Child instances. Each SMS Child involved will operate with the Management System that manages its current infrastructure (configuring and queering its devices).
  22. 22. HPDMnet project and the GLIF Infrastructure MOTIVATION: • Problematic: – Multiple Sites Require High Performance / High Volume / High Definition Digital Media Streaming Simultaneously Among All Locations (Multi-Point to Multi-Point) – Traditional L3 Techniques Cannot Be Used for Many Types of High Definition Media – These Techniques Were Designed for Many Small Information Flows – Not for Large Scale Flows. • Solutions: – To form a Consortium of Research Centres from Around the World (or Cooperative Partnership) – To Explore the Key Issues Related to the Challenges and Opportunities Related to Using LightPaths for High Performance Digital Media (HPDM)
  23. 23. HPDMnet Demos @ GLIF September 2007 (Prague) @ echallenges October 2007 (Amsterdam, Ottawa) @ ArtFutura October 2007 (Barcelona) @ SuperComputing Nov. 2007 (Reno, Nevada)
  24. 24. ARGIA/HPDMnet at GLIF (added value) • ARGIA* deployed at some GOLEs, controlling GLIF infrastructure (access to network element control and management): – Argia deployed at CANARIE – Argia deployed at STARLIGHT – Ongoing conversations to deploy Argia at the PacificWAVE Seattle GOLE (for a demo at the GLIF meeting 2008) – Ongoing conversations do deploy Argia at the KOREALIGHT GOLE • Access to Layer 1 circuits: – Experimental test and validation of optical multicast technologies to transport high performance digital media. * ARGIA is still being developed and enhanced (Inocybe –start-up-, CRC, i2CAT). The network is also used to experiment and develop the product towards a commercial version
