NET Action Items Status

Update on ESnet agreement

Jeff Kantor

Reminder: Work on your items

Working on contract with ESnet. May need ESnet: FIU getting quotes from commercial providers, Jeff Kantor will check with procurement and pass on information this week. ESnet will provide "100 Gbps path diverse lit service", they will provide transponders, not just an optical lambda. However, ESnet is open to upgrading transponders if we need to with just CAPEX charge. Lit service will be on ESnet 6 optical. Pricing currently has ESnet providing transponders.

Network Design and End-to-End Test Plan and QoS planning

Acquired new 100 Gbps servers, 3 new 3U nodes in our topology, have 1 each in Miami, Boca, Sao Paolo. Part of INT project. Will help with testing QoS. Have plans to replace Brocades for smaller U boxes, would open up Santiago.
