New Tactics in Network Design -- A Balancing Act

Time 03/07/19 10:30AM-11:45AM

Room Monument (M4)

Session Abstract

Many R&E networks, including CENIC's CalREN, are experiencing exponential growth in demand for bandwidth, particularly for 100 GE connectivity. Unfortunately, the cost of 100GE optical hardware remains high. How do we manage the necessary growth of our backbone infrastructure ahead of customer demand in the face of these high costs?

This presentation will explore CENIC’s strategy in facing this challenge by using approaches that balance resilience and cost. The primary technical focus within this presentation will be on CENIC’s DWDM transport system and how we are striving to manage costs, while maintaining reasonable supportability and stability of the network.
