  3. 3. 3Introduction
  4. 4. Context• The architecture of TCP / IP (Internet) is a hugesuccess since its adoption 30 years ago:– Adopted in 1985 by the NSF as architecture for theNSFNET network– Extended to the commercial world from 1999 (createdthe "bubble" of 2000)– Continues to expand to control almost all digitalcommunications in the world– Due to the high flexibility of the architecture– Facilitates the incorporation of new means of transport4
  5. 5. Context5• The flexibility is due to complete separationbetween applications and transmission detailsused:
  6. 6. Context• However it introduces difficulties to themodification of network abstraction used:– prevents differential treatment for applications thatrequire special QoS– A single terminal equipment has multiple IPaddresses, if it has a redundant connectivity– Handsets (not always connected) cause “difficulties”between transparency and mobility– Security "came after", and became essential foralmost all activities today6
  7. 7. • The ability of Internet architecture toabsorb patches is running outContext
  8. 8. Future Internet• Overcoming this limitation requires changing this architecturethrough the design called Future Internet (FI)• Research FI consists of:– Discuss how the new architecture will be developed for theInternet;– Evaluate alternative proposals for this new architecture;– Develop procedures to adopt the new architecture.8
  9. 9. Future Internet• FI triggered a race for development testbeds to experimentallyevaluate alternative solutions for the Future Internet;• Europe, the United States, Japan and Brazil (among others)have been developing proposals:– GENI (U.S.)– FIRE (E U)– Akari (Japan)
  10. 10. Future Internet• Providing environments for large scale experimentationrequires:– Coexistence with the network traffic of production;– Environment should be flexible and programmable(software defined network) so that researchers can quicklydefine and validate their proposals10

  12. 12. FIBRE objectivesCreate a common space between the EU and BrazilforFuture Internet (FI) experimental researchintonetwork infrastructure and distributed applications,bybuilding and operating a federated EU-Brazil Future internetexperimental facility.The project will design, implement and validate a shared Future Internet researchfacility between Brazil and Europe, supporting the joint Future Internetexperimentation of European and Brazilian researchers12

  20. 20. Development of infrastructure/substrate• In order to define and develop the FIBRE-BR infrastructurewe worked on:• Specification of technical requirements ( network andcomputer) to purchase the equipment• Acquisition of network and computer equipment• Defining the topology for each island based on the localinfrastructure• Design of network connections for integrating the islandsto one another• Define a strategy plan to deploy the testbed• Deployment and testing of individual facilities21
  21. 21. SPECIFICATION OF TECHNICAL REQUIREMENT• FIBRE-BR is composed by the set of hardware/software.– OpenFlow Switchs– Servers– Wireless Nodes– CMF (OCF/OMF/VM)• These devices were defined in the according therequirements of Brazilian CMF• Created the commissions (groups) to generate specificationto buy FIBRE equipment (RFP - Request For Proposal).22Optical TestbedsOptical TestbedsWireless TestbedsWi-fi APsWimaxOF-enabled SwitchNetFPGA ServersCompute ServersFIBRE Common ResourcesOrbit NodesOther Internal Testbeds(e.g. Emulab)Site-Specific ResourcesTo FibrePartnersRNP IpêGIGAKyatera

  29. 29. 30Final Considerations
  30. 30. • FIBRE is a showcase project in international collaboration inFuture Internet– Demonstrate local capacity to collaborate with leadingEuropean projects in this important area– Provide local experimental facilities for validating anddemonstrating new FI proposals– Provide opportunity for extension to and participation byresearchers from other Latin American countries– Promote involvement of and technology transfer to theindustrial sector, to prepare for Future Internet needs,especially involving OpenFlow and SDN approaches.Benefits
  31. 31. Expected Results• Intercontinental slices of heterogeneous infrastructure to networkresearchers.• A federated infrastructure automatically controlled by one or more CMFs• High speed intercontinental links connecting the European and theBrazilian parts of the joint facility.• Enhanced OFELIA Control Framework software• Enhanced OMF and OML software• Federation software and tools• Experimental network application software• Network of contacts between Brazilian and European partners• Internal and external links with similar initiatives32
