NSI Hands-On Tutorial: Designing & Deploying NSI Services - (Room 301)
Chairman :
Members : Jerry Sobieski
Tomohiro Kudoh
Gerben van Malenstein
Jin Tanaka
Objectives :

This 1-day hands-on tutorial presents the NSI framework, protocol, and service domain engineering. It is targeted at network engineers and management that will be responsible for infrastructure engineering and support of NSI service domains.

The Network Service Interface (NSI) is an OGF standard for multi-domain provisioning of dedicated network connections. NSI is the result of 3+ years of work by dozens of R&E network organizations and experts to define a consensus standard that can provide ubiquitous end-to-end provisioning of network resources - across diverse autonomous domains, that scales globally, and that addresses security, privacy, and authorization concerns. Initiated by the GLIF community, the NSI standard has include key contributors from KISTI, AIST, KDDI Labs, ESnet, NORDUnet, SURFnet, PIONIER, DANTE and many others.

This workshop will present NSI framework and protocols, the NML topology framework, and design and engineering issues that must be addressed for interoperable NSI service deployment.

The class will be 4+ hours of technical presentations interspersed with free-form hands on exercises. Ample time is allowed for discussion. Several NSI software implementations will be presented as well as the international dynamic lightpath facility: the Automated GOLE.

Target Audience : Network Engineers working on dynamic provisioning of international lightpath services
Expected Number of Participants : 25
