Agenda
  • Wireless at Emory
  • Status at Start of School
  • The ResNet Project
  • Current Usage
  • EmoryUnpulgged Released
  • Wireless Futures
  • Emorys Next Generation Core
  • Current State
  • Design
  • Virtual Routing
  • Mesh versus Cube
  • 1 gig versus 10 gig
  • Implementation Timeline

19
Wireless Start of School
  • September 2005
  • 271 Access Points (all Aruba)
  • Full or Partial Coverage in over 20 Buildings
  • 3 Outdoor Areas Covered
  • Although coverage around campus was significant,
    the only Residence Hall with wireless was
    Woodruff

20
Wireless The ResNet Project
  • In September AAIT, Housing, and NetCom, led by
    Rich put together a project to install wireless
    in all of the Residence Halls.
  • Lowered costs
  • 1,175 per Install (was 1,250)
  • 54 per month (was 72)
  • ResNet Project Specifics
  • More than 50 Buildings
  • Projected almost 500 APs
  • Roughly 700,000
  • Deadline January - Start of Spring Semester

21
Wireless ResNet Project Status
  • Completed Buildings
  • Alabama, Dobbs, Gilbert, Hopkins, Longstreet,
    McTyeire, Means, Oxford, Smith, Thomas, Thomson,
    Trimble
  • 395 Access Points (up from 271)
  • Remaining Buildings
  • Clairmont (A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H Tower), Clifton
    Tower, Fraternity Row, Harris, Turman Complex,
    Turner Village
  • An additional 200 APs to go

22

  • Unauthenticated and unencrypted wireless access
    for guests
  • Limited to Web, Secure Web, and VPN

  • Others
  • Wireless VoIP
  • The Remote AP
  • The Mobile Office

27
NexGen Core Current State
28
NexGen Core - Design
  • Virtual Routers
  • In the current model there are separate physical
    routers for each core with in the same switching
    center
  • Virtual Routers allow for each core to be
    contained within the same physical router
  • Advantages
  • Less Routers (less power and space)
  • Greater scalability

29
NexGen Core - Design
  • Mesh versus Cube
  • Mesh Advantages
  • Each router is only one hop away from any other
    router
  • Ultimate in redundancy
  • Mesh Disadvantage
  • Too many fiber paths and fiber ports

30
NexGen Core - Design
31
NexGen Core - Design
  • Cube Design
  • Each router is connected to a subset of the other
    core routers in such a way that an outage with
    any fiber path or switch center would not cause
    an outage.
  • Conserves on fiber paths and ports

32
NexGen Core - Design
33
NexGen Core - Design
  • 1 Gig vs. 10 Gig
  • Even with a cube design it would use an excessive
    amount of ports and fiber to duplicate the cube
    for each core.
  • With 10 Gig links we can setup the cube and
    virtually partition one gig links for each core.
  • Each core will be at each switching center
  • We will be able to burst into the unused bandwidth

34
NexGen Core - Design
35
NexGen Core Implementation
  • The Routers are being installed now
  • The new router cube should be built before next
    semester
  • A transition plan for migrating links to the new
    core is being developed.
  • Deadline end of the fiscal year
