Session Abstract

This talk will present the status of the Internet2 Dynamic Circuit Network (DCN) architecture and deployment. This includes an overview of technology, services, and capabilities of the current deployment. A description of the topology of connecting regional and peering wide area networks is provided along with an overview of how to access DCN services. The first part of the talk will focus on the Internet2 DCN, with special emphasis on the technology and features of the underlying Ciena CoreDirector infrastructure.

A major component of accessing and using the emerging global reach of dynamic lightpath services, is extending these services across regional networks and into campus environments. This talk summarizes techniques for deployment of a regional dynamic circuit network based on Ethernet technology. This includes connecting the regional network to the global dynamic lightpath infrastructure. This is a summary of the information taught as part of the DCN Workshop, with an emphasis on the architecture and design aspects of these types of deployments.

The talk also describes community efforts to create global dynamic circuit infrastructure, some of the issues in doing that, and efforts to standardize interfaces to dynamic network service providers.
