Session Abstract

Multi-layer, multi-domain hybrid network architectures present several new issues due to the heterogeneous nature of the data plane. These networks provide the ability to establish paths (circuits) at various technology levels such as lambda, SONET, Ethernet, and router MPLS. This talk presents an overview of an effort to evaluate and characterize data paths constructed at the various technology layers as well as data paths constructed via the concatenation of multiple technology-diverse segments. The approach is to combine data collection with advanced simulation and modeling capabilities to predict the performance of existing hybrid networks and also assist in the design of alternative hybrid network architectures. This work is utilizing the infrastructures of UltraScience Net, ESnet, and Internet2 for data collection and as the basis for the analysis work.
