    • AARNet Copyright 2012 The AARNet National Video Conferencing LandscapeNetwork Operations James SankarDirector, Applications and Services
    • AARNet Copyright 2012 Vision Take advantage of the AARNet and Global NREN networks & expertise, with vendor partners to deliver user friendly multivendor converged communication services that connect “beyond the enterprise” High Performing – “dial tone” Easy to use using existing platforms Reachable – engineering over firewalls and NAT Secure – Fewer firewall ports to open Unmetered access, via national/international (NRENum) Multi-vendor, Multi-device – Flexibility Scalable – overflow, shared cloud based services Supported – 24x7 Sustainable – Fees paying SLA based service guarantees Cost effective – Best practice & shared services buying club Innovative – working with partners on next collaboration services2

    • AARNet Copyright 2012 Disrupting factors in R&E today I want my MCU in house z I want on demand ad hoc vs conferencing I would like a hosted MCU vs I want scheduling on my Most of my conferences are simple, calendar known gigs vs I would like to ‘burst’ to a pool of resources shared between Most of my conferences are to disparate off-net locations other parties on demand vs In house support service I want all of my ports to be virtual, but full 24/7 Vs availability to me External support services5

    • AARNet Copyright 2012 What customers are saying about collaboration services •  Expect Pay for Use MCU cloud 3years+ •  Use Calendaring as scheduler? •  Make it easy in + outside enterprise – multiple devices •  Add flexibility to conference mgt •  Multivendor •  Staffing •  24x7 support •  Market too dynamic = investment risk •  Need coordinated approach + shared service7
    • AARNet Copyright 2012 Shared, Brokered services highly valued8
    • AARNet Copyright 2012NVCS – Carrier Grade Cloud Service future •  On Net Accessible •  Redundant, Resilient, •  Common approach – lower cost/complexity – co-investment? •  Multi-vendor + R&D enhancements •  24x7 supported with SLAs •  Fee based – opt in service model •  Greenfield investment –  New blade server architecture –  Multi-POP located –  Burst beyond port level capacity –  Scheduled/Ad hoc requirements to review from enterprise angle •  Means –  Multi-tenant – outsource or own virtual MCU –  Universities can pool investments – value for money –  Universities can connect nationally/internationally –  Options to outsource local support/room mgt to third parties
    • AARNet Copyright 2012 Collaboration service ubiquity is coming•  AARNet UC eXchange –  Connects multiple UC platforms together –  Unmetered access on AARNet –  B2B national/Intl VoIP/Video calls –  Free Point-to-Point calls –  Free Multipoint conference calls –  Mobile Apps for free calls from wifi locations – preconfigured, eduroam auth•  SIP URI dialling is enabling greater access from outside the enterprise –  Support for VoIP calls –  Video calls – dependency on bandwidth –  Wifi access = no false positives with 3G/ 4G (e.g. costs more for data than PSTN)10
    • AARNet Copyright 2012 Emerging road map* •  NVCS: Carrier grade shared service to outsource guaranteed video ports or manage own virtual MCU alongside secure, scalable on.net national and global service reach •  AARNet UC exchange: Connect more institutions, peer with other Intl exchanges, support VoIP calls over wifi via apps •  Telepresence Interoperability: Merge services into NVCS (same scheduler, same next gen infrastructure) for traditional and Telepresence video services •  AARNet Anywhere: AARNet/Polycom personal video conferencing platform * Plan subject to sector consultation, workshops and CCSC11 recommendations and demand for services from the sector
    • AARNet Copyright 2012 Next Steps: QUESTNet workshop: 10 July Targets Goals •  Middle Management •  Gather tactical/technical feedback –  ICT on customer issues/opportunities –  Communications and priorities –  AV/VC •  Generate greater awareness of –  Collaboration services AARNet services •  Technical staff •  Attract support and co-operation to –  VoIP/Unified Comms connect, use and develop services –  Video Conferencing •  Insight from the vendors on UC/ –  Telepresence video products and services –  Support Staff12
