Activity Details

Network Engineering Workshop

ObjectivesThis workshop will encourage network engineers & NOC staff to work for integrating North American R&E networks, GEANT/Asi@Connect and APAN, especially for international advanced applications. This workshop will focus on advanced network research & engineering projects as well as the updates of APAN member/partner networks and will help APAN to be one of the advanced research & education networks in the globe.

1.   MYREN updates   Slides (PDF)
2.  Network Challenges & Solutions   Slides (PDF)
Shah Rahman, Augere Wirless Broadband Bangladesh Ltd, Bangladesh
The purpose of this talk is to share about Network external interference (with neighbor country); practical examples with network professional and researchers. I will share interference issue plotting graph and based on some real time data analysis report. In addition I will discuss interference diagnosis methodology. Finally I will share my findings and reasonable assumption.
3.  Development of LHCONE in Asia   Slides (PDF)
Hsin-Yen Chen, Academia Sinica Grid Computing Center, Taiwan
The LHCONE is a collaborative network for the LHC research community. The majority of high performance computing centers participating in LHCONE have implemented some form of science DMZ perimeter architecture in order to attach to the LHCONE network. The LHCONE in Asia has been discussed and implemented since APAN38. It has been shown to be a very stable and functional service for WLCG (Worldwide Large Hadron Collider Computing Grid) in the High Energy Physics. It is the key for the future evolution of WLCG.

5.   Results of NASA-APAN network testing since 1999 until now   Slides (PDF)
Veerachai Tanpipat, Hydro and Agro Informatics Institute, Thailand
Over the past 19 years, ENSIGHT Network performance tests -- for NASA's Earth Observation System (EOS); have been conducting a network performance test to Thailand through Asia Pacific Advanced Network (APAN). It is a server to server hourly test with one way Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) Thruput, round-trip time (RTT), Packet Loss percentage, and the number of hops. It began in 1999 for a preparation of the first Committee of Earth Observation Satellite (CEOS) Working Group on Information Systems and Services (WGISS) meeting in Thailand and Global Observing Information Network (GOIN) Initiative between National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) - Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) - Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) and Southeast Asia Global Change SysTem for Analysis, Research and Training Regional Center (SEA START RC). The Inter University Network (UniNeT) test was started in November 2001. The test at HAII have been started since June 2012. The average speed was 425 Mbps where a perfSONAR test between Thailand's National Electronics and Computer Technology Center (NECTEC) - Thai Social/Scientific Academic and Research Network (ThaiSARN) and Tokyo APAN was 627 Mbps on 13th December 2018.

Session 2 : Global Networking

Date:Thursday 2019-02-21
Time:11:00 - 12:30
Location:Room 103

1.  KREONet2 Research Networking: Global Big Data Super-Highway    Slides (PDF)
Buseung Cho, KREONET / KISTI, South Korea
2.  SINET Global Networks and the Technologies   Slides (PDF)
Motonori Nakamura, Tohoku University, NII
Current SINET5 international links to US, Europe and Singapore will be upgraded to 100G links in early 2019. The new international network system of SINET5 will be a ring topology which include Atlantic 100G link for good availability by having cost effective redundancy. In addition, JP-US link, JP-SG link and US-EU link will be mutually backed up by collaboration with TransPAC/PacificWave, JGN and ANA respectively. In this talk, outline and technologies of the new international network system of SINET5 will be presented.
3.  Technical talk on the coming 100G sg to eu link   Slides (PDF)
Patch Lee
Recently, a group of nRENs and Regional RENs have come together to procure a 100G link between Singpaore and London(UK). The consortium consists of AARnet, Geant, SurfNET, NorduNet, TEINCC and SingAREN. Instead of just buying bandwidth on short term contract, the consortium has moved towards a 15 year IRU. The talk will cover some of the technical challenges and thought process in our journey. It will also cover how this would change the landscape of the connectivity between Europe and our region(South Asia, South-east Asia, North Asia, Oceania)

5.  70 Gbps fully encrypted data transfer experiments over Pacific Ocean   Slides (PDF)
Junichiro Shitami
Target applications of long-distance data-movement change gradually. Early applications are mainly instrumentation data of physics or astronomy and graphics and videos. Our recent applications have been shifted to bio-science and medical science. Here fully-encrypted data transfer is always required to satisfy research ethics. However, fully-encrypted high-speed data transfer is much difficult than plain data-transfer between storage devices. We developed fully encrypted data transfer facility and performed very long-distance 100 Gbps data-movement experiments from US (Dallas, TX) to Singapore via Tokyo. RTT of this network is 443 ms (we used folded path between US and Singapore using 2 VLANs). Results of data-movement experiments shows stable 79.6 Gbps (peak), 74.1 Gbps (average) for more than 5 minutes. The important fact is that this level of performance is attained by a pair of ordinary 1U servers and can be applied many practical set-ups.
