Outline The WHREN-LILA Project Network Connectivity in Latin America AtlanticWave Applications and Communities Being Enabled Education and Outreach

WHREN-LILA IRNC Award 0441095 : 

WHREN-LILA IRNC Award 0441095 5-year NSF Cooperative Agreement Florida International University (IRNC awardee) Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California Project support from the Academic Network of Sao Paulo (award #2003/13708-0) CLARA, Latin America CUDI, Mexico RNP, Brazil REUNA, Chile Links Interconnecting Latin America (LILA) aims to Improve connectivity in the Americas through the establishment of new inter-regional links Western-Hemisphere Research and Education Networks (WHREN) serves as a coordinating body whose aim is to leverage participants’ network resources to foster collaborative research and advance education throughout the Western Hemisphere

Links Interconnecting Latin America: 

Links Interconnecting Latin America Miami - Sao Paulo link: 1.2Gbps by year end, evolving to 2.5Gbps Connects State of Sao Paulo academic network (ANSP) and Exchange Point, regional network (CLARA), Brazilian NREN (RNP), other international networks San Diego - Tijuana link: operating at 2 x 1 Gbps, providing dedicated GigE links to regional network (CLARA) and Mexican NREN (CUDI) East and west coast connectivity to I2 Abilene and other US and global R&E networks http://www.whren-lila.net CUDI CLARA CLARA ANSP RNP

Recent Connectivity Activities: 

Recent Connectivity Activities The Sao Paulo exchange point is in full operation A distributed exchange point service between Miami and Sao Paulo is now in service using the LILA-East link RedCLARA connection at Sao Paulo progressing (within 60 days) Nicaragua and Colombia recently connected to RedCLARA 14 NRENs from Latin America and RedCLARA are using the WHREN-LILA links to reach the U.S.

HEPGrid Brazil international connection - WHREN/LILA: 

HEPGrid Brazil international connection - WHREN/LILA São Paulo has become an important NAP (joining CLARA / GEANT / Abilene networks)


Countries connected to CLARA Argentina Brazil Chile Colombia Costa Rica Ecuador El Salvador Guatemala Mexico Nicaragua Panama Peru Uruguay Venezuela


AtlanticWave AtlanticWave will provide an International Peering Fabric US, Canada, Europe, South America Distributed IP peering points and add/drops in: NYC, WDC, ATL, MIA, SPB SURA, FIU-AMPATH, IEEAF, MAX, SoX, MANLAN, and in partnership with the Academic Networks of Sao Paulo (ANSP) are combining efforts to establish AtlanticWave A-Wave is an integral component of the NSF IRNC WHREN-LILA project to create an open distributed exchange and transport service along the Atlantic rim Complements the PacificWave distributed peering facility on the Pacific rim

AtlanticWave - Next Steps: 

AtlanticWave - Next Steps Finalize Memorandum of Understanding between participating exchange points and the Southeastern Universities Research Association (SURA) Order NLR wave from Miami (AMPATH) to NYC (MANLAN) Install wave Have AtlanticWave ready for service for Super Computing 2006 in November


UltraLight is A four year $2M NSF ITR funded by MPS Application driven Network R&D A collaboration of BNL, Caltech, CERN, Florida, FIU, FNAL, Internet2, Michigan, MIT, SLAC Significant international participation: Brazil, Japan, Korea amongst many others Goal: Enable the network as a managed resource Meta-Goal: Enable physics analysis and discoveries which could not otherwise be achieved

UltraLight: Advanced Network Services for Data Intensive HEP Applications: 

UltraLight: Advanced Network Services for Data Intensive HEP Applications Extend and augment existing grid computing infrastructures (currently focused on CPU/storage) to include the network as an integral component A next-generation hybrid packet- and circuit-switched dynamic network infrastructure Partners: Caltech, UF, FIU, UMich, I2, SLAC, FNAL; UERJ, USP, ANSP, RNP; GLORIAD (cn, kr, ru), GLIF Strong support from Cisco, CENIC, NLR, FLR


http://www.chepreo.org An integrated program of research, network infrastructure development, and education and outreach at one of the largest minority schools in the US An International Grid Enabled Center for High Energy Physics Research & Educational Outreach at FIU

Education Workshop June, 2006 @ FIU: 

Education Workshop June, 2006 @ FIU Workshop Highlights 15+ Students Lecturers / Leaders UltraLight coPIs / Outside Experts Topics: Grid Computing, Advanced Networking Engineering, Network Montioring using MonALISA, Netflow, AMP data Early Summer Graduate Student Preparation Summer Project Preparation Participants from the US, Brazil and Argentina Provided a follow on activity to the PASI www.ultralight.caltech.edu

Opening a University Fiber Highway Between Mexico and the US: 

COLLABORATORS Carlos Casasus, CUDI, México, ccasasus@cudi.edu.mx Eric Frost, SDSU, US, eric.frost@sdsu.edu Dr. Gustavo Chapela Castañares, CONACYT, México, Dr. Federico Graef Ziehl, CICESE, México, fgraef@cicese.mx Opening a University Fiber Highway Between Mexico and the US iGrid2005 demonstration collaboration between SDSU, SDSC from the U.S. and CICESE and CUDI from Mexico A grid was formed by computer clusters running Linux at CICESE and at SDSC Utilized the WHREN-LILA west link, the compute servers from PRAGMA, and the SDSU Visualization Center

Cyberinfrastructure for International Biodiversity Research Collaboration Workshop: 

Cyberinfrastructure for International Biodiversity Research Collaboration Workshop Purpose: Examine trends where Cyberinfrastructure is likely to effect change in biodiversity research and ecological informatics - January 10-13, 2006, in Panama City, Panama Support and participation from 5 national science funding agencies: the U.S. NSF, Panama (SENACYT), Mexico (CONACYT), Costa Rica (CR-USA), Colombia (Colciencias) 60+ biology researchers, cyberinfrastructure technologists and funding agency directors from above countries, with participants from Guatemala, Puerto Rico and Peru Funding priorities, science collaboration objectives and the application of cyberinfrastructure to support those objectives were addressed Award #0549456 http://www.ciara.fiu.edu/biocyber/index.htm


4 Science & Engineering Graduate Student Fellowships Research Stipend Tuition for Spring and Summer 2006 CIARA IT Science Certificate Collaborative publication & conference participation CI-TEAM Demonstration NSF Award # OCI-0537464 Heidi Alvarez, PI CIARA Julio Ibarra, Co-PI CIARA Chi Zhang, Co-PI CS Eric Johnson, Co-PI CS Oct 1, 2005 - Sept 30, 2006 By understanding Research & Education Cyber Infrastructure, we will bridge the divide between IT and the Sciences www.cyberbridges.net

Proposed Next Steps: 

Proposed Next Steps Expand program to multiple globally distributed institutions More students, More faculty, More technologists Call the program “Global CyberBridges” (GCB) Provide a Model Global Collaboration Infrastructure for workforce development in e-Science between US and China This model infrastructure could be developed through a partnership between CIARA of FIU, UCSD, and CNIC of CAS (MOU signed with CAS) Bridging facilitators at City University Hong Kong Partner with University of Sao Paulo, Brazil


Proposed GCB Concept

Overall Next Steps: 

Overall Next Steps Explore future joint sponsorships that will engage U.S. and Latin American domain scientists to apply CI to their science Biodiversity and ecological research Genomics and others International training and education collaborations, bringing together research faculty and students, that apply CI to domain science PASI, workshops, etc. Work with the CI community to engage our domain scientists on the application of state-of-the-art research collaboration tools to satisfy their science objectives Scientific workflows, Communities of Interests (eg. PRAGMA)
