WELCOME TO ANSP

 

 

The ANSP project (an Academic Network at São Paulo), as determined by a decision of FAPESP's Board of Trustees, “provides the State of São Paulo research community with state of the art computer networking connectivity.”

 

ANSP develops and maintains the infrastructure, Internet services and data communication in general which, in conjunction with ANSP’s Technical Reserve Program, offers the education and research community in the State of São Paulo the technological means needed to access information throughout the world, to share knowledge, to develop collaborative projects and for innovation on a large scale.

 

The ANSP Project is run by NARA from The Medical School of the University of São Paulo and is funded by FAPESP through process 2013/11711-5

 

 

ARTICLE ON THE IMPLEMENTATION OF OPENFLOW/SDN ON THE AMLIGHT PROJECT RECEIVES AN AWARD AT THE INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM OF INTEGRATED MANAGEMENT OF NETWORKS OF THE IEEE

 

The article "Benefits brought by the use of OpenFlow/SDN on the AmLight intercontinental research and education network", prepared by the teams of the ANSP network in São Paulo and Miami (NARA/CIARA) and by the RNP, received the "Best Experience Paper Award" at the 14th Symposium on Integrated Management of Networks in Ottawa, Canada.

 

The article, which describes the implementation of solutions based on Software Defined Network techniques (SDN) to automate and reduce the operating costs of the optical links connecting the  RNP and ANSP to academic networks in the United States, was presented by the AmLight project networks engineer, Jerome Bezerra, during the first section of "Experiences" of the event, on 12 May. This symposium, which is organized jointly by IFIP (International Federation for Information Processing) and the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) was held this year in Ottawa, Canada, during the week of 11 to 15 May 2015.

 

The implementation of the basic functions of the links between Brazil and the United States automates the connection between Brazilian and American academic networks, simplifying, streamlining and reducing costs of operation. Similar solutions had already been implemented on the American Internet2 network but had not yet to be tested in complex and multi-user links such as the AmLight project. Therefore, for each network function migrated to SDN, a metric was defined and real measurements were taken before and after each deployment scenario of the new function. These measurements were then compared to determine their advantages and disadvantages.

 

According to Professor Luis F. Lopez, coordinator of the ANSP project, the discussion and dissemination of these experiments and their findings is an important component of the Ampath project’s work. The presentation of an experimental scientific paper at an international symposium allows us, in addition to providing state of the art connectivity for the researchers who participate in international collaborative projects, to share the knowledge generated with the networks community.
