NS-WAN Team Meeting Minutes 1-12-17

Summary of NS-WAN Team Meeting Thursday 1-12-17

Attendees: Mike Blodgett, Will Boettcher, Pat Christian, Tim Czerwonka, Michael Hare, Bill Jensen, Paul Nazario, Dan Parenteau


1. DNS/DHCP project update (Kudos & quick status)

* Congrats & good work 

* Cleanup & completion of phase 1 work underway

* Planning for phase 2 underway


2. CAIDA scans on NS-LAN (mv to campus border?)


  • Mike B running raspberry-pi (unmanaged) probe on trusted network, Dale’s old ATLAS-RIPE probe

  • If there isn’t significant value to evaluating NS-LAN, consider moving this to the 4500X attached to CSSC border (ASR9k); Mike will move the CAIDA device to the campus border

  • Consider developing separate network for probe/unmanaged devices attaching to network (table for future discussion)

3. 100Gbps ASR 9k card & Animal vs CSSC termination (research wave)


  • Mike B researched this issue here & found old 100Gbps crashing issue was due to software bug (that’s been fixed)

  • New higher density line rate 100Gbps cards require fabric upgrades

  • Is card available via 3rd party market

  • Have to have spare for a new card

  • Need to think about CFP optics pricing vs QSFP28 or CPAK (CFP-2)

  • Discussion surrounding current vs. future campus network capability to deliver 10Gbps+ flows

  • Trying to rearchitect campus/research network to Animal is much more work so strong preference is to keep 100Gbps research path out of CSSC

4. Google peering @ MICE

* Discussion tabled until next meeting


5. UWO SysNet rack lift (1/23)


  • Dan spoke with UWO (Dan Peterson); built frame around our rack & are securing top

  • Dan P’s analysis is to NOT send anyone to UWO; Dan P will provide WEJ’s cell # to call if there’s any concerns

6. SysNet & AT&T update

* Pat note UW-System is having discussion with AT&T about services UW can purchase to reduce Centrex voice service rate increases.  May involve SysNet buying AT&T transit among other things.
