Session Abstract

In 2010, Internet2 was awarded federal stimulus funding under the NTIA's Broadband Technology and Opportunities Program. There were three primary infrastructure thrusts to the award: acquisition of a dark fiber pair on a national footprint, installation of a 100G capable optical system, and upgrade of the Layer2/3 infrastructure to provide 100G transport across the footprint. This talk with focus on the 2-year implementation of the BTOP-funded network upgrade with an emphasis on lessons learned along the way. Chris Robb from Internet2 and Jeremy Carlson with Level3 Communications will both provide their insights and perspectives on the challenges, triumphs and accomplishments of the network rollout.
