Internet2 Dynamic Circuit Services (DCS) Workshop #4

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

September 13-14, 2007
University of Houston AT&T Technology Lab
Houston, Texas

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. 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 first day will focus on concepts and basic control plane design and implementation topics. The second day will address inter-domain dynamic service provisioning with a case study of the Internet2 Dynamic Circuit Services integration and international peering issues.
