Nortel Presentation at GLIF

  1. 1. Rod Wilson, Director External Research Metro Ethernet Networks NORTEL Research Labs, Ottawa Canada October 22, 2009
  2. 2. Dynamic Resource Allocation Control (DRAC) • Original concept called CO2 implying optical bandwidth content on demand as required by Applications. • With help from Marketing it became DRAC • Developed in 2004 by my Nortel colleagues Franco Travostino, Bruce Schofield and Inder Monga. • Nortel Research has presented experimental evolutions of DRAC as a GLIF participant and at SC04 SC07 • Development of DRAC has progressed over the past years, but there were insufficient market forces to expand the functionality to complete the vision. 2
  3. 3. DRAC Announcement • In order to fully realize the potential of DRAC, to meet the needs of our R&E collaborators… and others Nortel is announcing our intention to make DRAC available for the GLIF Community under an Open Source License • official position is it will take 6 months • we hope and expect to do better A technical presentation about DRAC follows later in the 9th GLIF annual meeting agenda. Thank You 3
  4. 4. Dynamic Resource Allocation control (DRAC) A Brief History, where it came from, what it does and where is it going 4

  9. 9. Activities to Precede Going Open Source • Tutorial/Instructional Material As html or apt (almost plain text) file snippets • Review, approval of Nortel Business Administrators • Architecture/Philosophy documentation • - overall architecture & philosophy & history/vision • - document/list of items to fix or improve • e.g. RMI vs socket messaging (currently we use a mix of both), OME control plane support, Limitations • Code preparation in accordance with license requirements • Define the (collaborative environment) organization of the first year • Security audit to ensure safe and controlled user access to the network resource. 9
