Brief Overview of the RNP• RNP – Rede Nacional de Ensino e Pesquisa• Brazilian NREN – National Research and Education Network– Created as a project in September 1989 by the Ministry ofScience, Technology and Innovation (MCTI),– Became a non-profit institution in 1999• Serves more than 800 campi– Over 130 public universities, more than 800 campi– Over 30 public and private research centers.
RNP national backbone• RNP nationalbackbone –Ipê network– Uses linksfrom TelecomCompanies– ConnectsPoP’s in thestate capitals+ RNP’smetropolitannetworksIpê = IP =

Introduction• Motivation:– to complement its network service, in 2002 began to develop its ownadvanced user services• How:– University research groups propose projects, and some of theseproposals are then developed with financial support and closetracking by RNP• Impact:– a growing portfolio of service offerings– closer relations with the research community.– RNP documented and designed a R&D Process• Also adopt the model to the development of network services, whererequirements are determined by RNP.• RedClara adopt a similar process to develop services in Latin America
Introduction• R&D RNP Programmes Examples:– Working Group - RNP Programme– RNP-induced WGs– WGs at RedCLARA
WG-RNP programme – Objectives• Develop innovation projects, with the aim of developing newproducts and services for RNP.• Themes related to applications, middleware and networks.• Assess how these new products and services can bedeployed in the production network.Launched in 2002.
WG-RNP programme – Methodology• Projects are proposed by research groups.• Selection is carried out through an open call for proposals:– See: http://www.rnp.br/editais/gt_2012-2013.html (in Portuguese)• Both initial selection and annual evaluation are carried out bycommittees composed of :– RNP staff members and– External representatives from the research community• SBC & LARC• These committees draw up a classification of the projects forapproval by the RNP Management Board
WG-RNP programme – ResultsThe WGs produce 2 kinds of results:• New service: included in the RNP ServicesCatalogue;• New product: becomes one of RNP’s “products onthe shelf” and may be used by RNP itself, or by itsclients (client institutions, government ministries,etc);

RNP-induced WGs• RNP has occasionally proposed themes fordevelopment, and has invited participation by theresearch community• Examples include:– Advanced applications for remote visualisation• 4K player and streamer, OptIPortal (intelligent videowall),– Network architecture and technology• Dynamic circuit provisioning– Advisory committees on monitoring and AAI• Eduroam

WGs at RedCLARA• WGs created in 2005• RNP participates intensively in thetechnical activities of the RedCLARA community since itsinception• RNP WG coordinators have often participated asinstructors in half-yearly RedCLARA training activities• RedCLARA has also adopted its own style of WGs, mainlyinvolving the technical representatives from each memberNREN, in the folowing themes: Videoconferencing,Measurements, Routing, Security, IPv6, Multicast, VoIP• In 2009 and 2011, calls were made to invite researchersfrom the RedCLARA community to help introduce newservices in the member NRENs
Some RedCLARA WGs results• WG Measurements created a pilot measurement networkusing perfSONAR among some Latin American NRENs,EUA and Europe• RedCLARA now belongs to the eduroam community basedon the work of the WG Eduroam/Mobility• The pilot service PIT-VOIP provides peering between VoIPnetworks• The expansion of IPv6 services in Latin Americanacademic networks was accomplished through thedissemination carried out by WG IPv6… and others.

Conclusion• RNP does not maintain an in-house team of developers• We prefer to outsource such activities to the researchcommunity, which has embraced the opportunitiesprovided.• These activities are managed by the RNP R&D directorate• The result has been beneficial to RNP and its users:– Enabling us to increase our service offerings in many areas– Permitting international collaboration to ensure interoperation ofmany of these services– Enhancing our interaction with the Brazilian research communityin Computer Networks and Distributed Systems,– To keep this interaction with research community we organize ourannual RNP Workshop in collocation with the annual BrazilianComputer Networks Symposium (SBRC) since 2003.
