Introduction
• IU currently has two international networking
projects
– Funded by the US National Science Foundation
– Part of the International Research Network
Connections (IRNC) Program
• America Connects to Europe (ACE)
• TransPAC, focuses on Asia
• http://internationalnetworking.indiana.edu/

TransPAC Today
• 15+ year history
• Cooperative partnership among Indiana University,
APAN, TEIN*CC, NICT-Japan, NII-Japan, CERNET, and
others
• 30Gbps deployed between US and Asia
– 10Gbps LA-Tokyo funded by NSF
– 10Gbps Tokyo-LA funded by NICT
– 10Gbps LA-Beijing funded by CERNET+NSF

Current TransPAC Projects
•
•
•
•
Deployment of measurement tools
Deployment of dynamic circuit services
Development of SDN (OpenFlow) services
Support for application end-users
• In Year 5 of 5 year award
– Runs through May 2015
5
We have applied for
• TransPAC4: Pragmatic Application-Driven
International Networking
• To run Jan 2015-Dec 2019
• New project requests $1.2M/year for 5 years
• Includes funding for circuits, exchange points,
application support, research
6
System Design
• Built-in redundancy and alternative paths
• Easy transition from the current TransPAC3 circuits
• Complementary paths and approaches to our
partners’ sister circuits
• Full support of production traffic, through reliable
technology choices and capacity matching current
and growing needs
• Ongoing support for experimental traffic
• Fiscally responsible approaches

TransPac4 Phase 1 (2015-2016)

TransPAC4 Phase 2 (2017-2019)

Why not 100G in Year 1 (2015)?
• Price tag: $2-3M per year, just for the circuit
• A year of the ANA-100G link has shown that
the technology may not be fully stable yet
• Current Asian inter-country connectivity not
yet 100G in many cases
• Few applications require more than 10G flows
right now
• Few exchange points are ready for this now
10
Details
• Transport: Support for Layer 3 peering as well
as multiple mechanisms for dynamic Layer 2
circuits
• Experimental work with SDN, FlowVisor,
InterDomain Controllers, Path Hinting, WAN
acceleration
11
End User Engagement
• Directly engage with user communities
• Focusing on end-to-end performance
• Application Advocacy Specialists will work
closely with end users with network needs
– including US branch campuses in Asia
• Potential to be transformational to
international science
12
IRNC Other
• Solicitation
– http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2014/nsf14554/nsf14554.htm
• Indiana University submitted 2 other
proposals to the IRNC program
– NetSage: Measurement of international links
• IU, U Hawaii, UC Davis/ESNet
– International Network Operations
• Waiting on notification – hopefully this fall
