Internet2 Dynamic Circuit Network (DCN) Workshop #7

Designing and Engineering Dynamic Circuit Network:
A Hands-On Workshop GMPLS Control Plane for the Research and Education Networking Environment

July 19-20, 2008

University of Nebraska — Nebraska Union
Lincoln, Nebraska

Overall description

This two-day workshop provides attendees with a working knowledge of how to design and deploy a GMPLS-based dynamic circuit services network and how to connect the GMPLS-based network to DCN with internet2. The workshop will provide an overview of GMPLS architecture, RSVP and OSPF protocols, control plane design concepts, and specifics of dynamic circuit services network engineering as relates to campus, regional, and national network facilities in the R&E community. Upon completion of this workshop, attendees will be able to design and implement a GMPLS-based network.

The attendees will design and implement a real layer 2 (Ethernet) Dynamic Circuit Services Testbed using the open source DRAGON GMPLS Software Suite. At the workshop, participants will have necessary network hardware and software to construct a working network that allows end systems to allocate dedicated VLAN network resources across multiple administrative domains.

The attendees will also configure OSCARS which introduce authentication and scheduling capabilities to DCN and enable inter-domain topology exchange.
