AARNet-X: AARNet’s New 100G SDN-Based Research Network

Time 10/17/17 01:30PM-01:50PM

Room Grand Ballroom A

Session Abstract

AARNet is currently developing an architecture for a cost-effective 100Gbps research-centric backbone network known as AARNet-X. This architecture is based on innovative software defined network (SDN) technologies with the aim of providing managed S-DMZ functionality. Connecting HPC sites both domestically and internationally, enabling collaboration for projects such as the SKA and PRP.

As a number of customers have indicated their requirements for connectivity services of greater than 10Gbps, initially for research traffic but subsequently to meet projected growth of general campus traffic. This demand is also driven by the falling cost of network and server hardware supporting 25, 40, 50 and 100Gbps, which until recently has been prohibitively expensive in comparison to 10Gbps.

This presentation will detail our progress to-date and feedback from our trial customers.
