Chris Tracy, ESnet

Chris Tracy is a Network Engineer at the Energy Sciences Network (ESnet) in the Scientific Network Division of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. ESnet is the high performance networking facility of the US Department of Energy Office of Science. ESnet's mission is to enable those aspects of the DOE Office of Science research mission that depend on high performance networking for success. Chris has worked in computing and networking since 1997. Prior to joining ESnet, he was a Co-PI on the GENI MANFRED proposal and was one of the systems/optical network engineers for the NSF DRAGON project, a $6.5M research program to deploy "experimental" optical networks utilizing novel technologies and services to provide real and measurable advantage to advanced e-science applications. The program was a collaborative project between the Mid-Atlantic Crossroads, the USC Information Sciences Institute East, George Mason University, and the University of Maryland College Park. He was also responsible for the deployment and operational management of the DRAGON network - a lambda-switched network which includes over 100 miles of fiber in the Washington DC/Baltimore metro area connecting 7+ POPs with ROADMs, OADMs, L2 switches, routers, etc. Chris has helped with strategic planning and providing engineering support for the DRAGON, HOPI, and DCN networks. He has been actively involved with the SCinet planning committee between 2002-2006, primarily working with the IT and WAN groups.
Abstract: This presentation will discuss the challenges and lessons learned in the deployment of the 100GigE ANI Prototype network and support of 100G circuit services during SC11 in Seattle. 100G Interoperability, testing, measurement, debugging, and operational issues at both the optical and layer-2/3 will be addressed.

Specific topics will include:

(1) 100G pluggable optics – options, support, and standardization issues,

(2) Factors negatively affecting 100G line-side transmission,

(3) Saturation testing and measurement with hosts connected at 10G,

(4) Debugging and fault isolation with creative use of loops/circuit services,

(5) Examples of interoperability problems in a multi-vendor environment, and

(6) Case study: Transport of 2x100G waves to SC11.
