Transcript

  • 1. A Simple Framework for IP Network Design Jeff Loughridge Principal Consultant Brooks Consulting LLC
  • 2. Industry Trends • Per-Mb prices in perpetual downfall • Utilization constantly increasing • New services emerging
  • 3. The two fundamental components of IP networks are routers and fiber.
  • 4. An IP network core’s primary function is to move bits as inexpensively as possible.
  • 5. The Ideal All-IP Environment • Maintains end-to-end principle • Intelligence in the end points; limited state maintained in the core • Clear demarcation between IP network performance/capabilities and applications that rely on network for bit carriage • Limited number of devices in the data delivery path
  • 6. Business Requirements for IP Networks • Simple to add new services • Generate new revenue without major overhauls to processes and systems • Easily adaptable to technology change • Full transparency – costs, metrics, accountability • Seamless access to the network
  • 7. Simplicity and Cash Flow • When a new device or system is added to the infrastructure, is value added commensurate with the investment? • What is the effect on the cost structure? • Minimizing cost-per-bit
  • 8. Conclusion • Design simple IP networks- you and your customers will mutually benefit • Ask questions – – Why are we adding this complexity to the network? – Are we pouring money into network elements not designed for IP? – What is the effect on the cost per bit
