In August 2012, OU hosted a Blue Ribbon panel of experts from across the US, mostly academic but also industry, to help us understand how to strategize for the coming decade. Non-panelist participants included: several dozen from OU; about a dozen other Oklahoma institutions; about a dozen institutions in 10 other EPSCoR jurisdictions; about a dozen from institutions in non-EPSCoR jurisdictions. Major realization: collaboration! with researchers, instead of only providing service; among OUs CIO, VPR and Dean of Libraries.

Realize the Science DMZ goals through the use of a truly independent network at each campus site. The network deployment will consist of dedicated optical pathways to the optical transport provider (OneNet), as well as to the local campus backbone where desired.

Deploy a fully virtualized infrastructure, to be used simultaneously by multiple research entities, presented to each entity as a dedicated slice of the overall resource. Leverage federation to provide oversight and visibility into the operations of the virtualized platform. OSCER State of the Center Address Wed Oct 2 2013 85 Network Deployment Goals (contd) Realize the full potential of OFFN through awareness, training, site-specific hand-off, and communities of support for OFFN adopters.

OSU has dedicated connectivity to connect to the IP at 100G. OU is deploying 2 x 10G with Layer-2 and Layer-3 transport services, from OU to OneNet, connecting directly into the same OneNet chassis as the IP. Under OFFN, researchers statewide will straightforwardly be able to access the IP via OU and OSU. DYNES: OU hosts a static DYNES site deployment. Primarily implemented as a dedicated path tool for OUHEPs SWT2 cluster to receive large datasets from LHCOne. Can easily be migrated to the 4PP Science DMZ. OSCER State of the Center Address Wed Oct 2 2013 93 External Connectors (contd) XSEDE: OUs already-funded plan to connect to the Innovation Platform can also facilitate connection to XSEDEnet at no additional charge, by OneNet simply setting aside 10 Gbps of the 100 Gbps connection into the Innovation Platform (subject to OneNets and XSEDEs approval).

PlanetLab provides an overlay services network that can be decomposed into tangible resource pools used for network experimentation. Both OU and OSU provide dedicated PlanetLab hardware resources.
