Next Generation R&E Ecosystem: Integrating Campuses Into the Regional Optical Platform
Time 10/17/18 01:40PM-02:00PM
New optical platforms promise to provide bandwidth, flexibility and service agility, and are leading more regional networks to deploy them in pursuit of those characteristics. The link to the campus has now become the most difficult problem: fiber distance and availability; edge equipment flexibility and capacity, the need to maintain production-level support and the cost of all those things. NYSERNet's deployment of a new statewide optical infrastructure has included an exploration of the options for integrating the campus into that platform. We will present the model topologies that we have already deployed, explore their capabilities and limitations, and talk about how we would like to evolve the campus-regional network.
