  • Ticket #224 – Description

    initial v1  
    1 On 1020/09, agreed with Ivan Seskar that this milestone will be completed when L2 conenction is complete from Rutgers, through NJEdge, to I2 DCN, and then on to NICTA.
     1From OMF Year 1 report, and email on 3/4/10:
     3Support for wide‐area (L2) connectivity
     4Early in the year, we worked with the NJEdge regional consortium to connect us to
     5regional center MAGPI East (Philadelphia). As part of this process, we acquired
     6dedicated fiber along the Route 1 corridor jointly with NJEdge. In the first half of the
     7year the section of missing fiber link between the Rutgers Food Science building and the
     8Route 1 fiber corridor (~1 mile) was installed and optical lambda service from NJEdge
     9was provisioned. This created 1Gbps optical link between our current location (Rt. 1
     10Technology Center, North Brunswick NJ) and carrier hotel (MagPI East) at 401 Broad
     11Street in Philly on the 9th floor. The ION connection was not provisioned due to missing
     12cross connect between I2 and MagPI. To avoid delays for other dependant deliverables,
     13we used L2 tunneling protocol (L2TP) over the excess capacity of 400Mbps on Rutgers
     14University's existing commodity feed to emulate expected L2 connectivity and
     15implement wide area networking. This link was used for a variety of testing scenarios,
     16including a single experiment with a mixture of individual resources on both ends of the
     17tunnel (with experiment coordination from both ends of the tunnel over multicast
     18traffic), running an aggregate manager for the resource on the opposite end of the
     19tunnel and measurement collection across endpoints.
     20We have successfully conducted a GEC demo that utilised L2 wide area network link
