LEARN and OneNet to be Connected to Pacific Wave

International cyberinfrastructure-based scientific research collaborations enhanced in Texas and Oklahoma through direct connections to Pacific Wave in El Paso and Tulsa

With support from the National Science Foundation’s International Research Network Connections (NSF IRNC) program, two significant US research and education networks (R&E), Texas’s Lonestar Education and Research Network (LEARN) and Oklahoma’s OneNet will be directly connected to the Pacific Wave International Exchange and its peering and science DMZ fabrics.

Pacific Wave, Western Regional Network, and Pacific Research Platform

In addition to interconnecting most international Asia-Pacific networks, key US Western regional R&E networks, leading national-scale research networks like Internet2 and ESnet who bring in all other research universities and facilities in the West, and major commercial research cloud services, Pacific Wave supports a wide array of international and domestic cyberinfrastructure-based scientific research collaborations which include: a pioneering multi-institutional science DMZ fabric that supports the Pacific Research Platform (PRP); an advanced Software Defined Exchange (SDX), Software Defined Networking (SDN), and related provisioning implementations (including ONOS and MEICAN, created by the national R&E network of Brazil, RNP); and number of other advanced networking and collaboration tools and components, some in production, others under development.

“An explicit goal of Pacific Wave, and a goal shared by OneNet and LEARN, is to develop and deploy a curated set of advanced networking components and architectures that reach across large enough geographies (here the Asia-Pacific Region and the Western US) and across critical masses of researchers, labs, data, computational resources, and scientific instruments. These efforts will empower researchers and research collaborations to achieve the network effects required to enable and accelerate the next waves of discovery in science, engineering, and medicine,” said Louis Fox, Principal Investigator of the NSF-funded Pacific Wave IRNC, and president and CEO of CENIC.
