Networking

XSEDENet is the high-speed interconnect between the eight core XSEDE Service Provider (SP) sites. Each site connects to Internet2's Advanced Layer 2 Service (AL2S) at 10 Gb/s. The connection between each XSEDE SP is point to point via VLANs with an automatic backup path in case there is a network outage along the primary path. Campus Bridging sites will be able to connect to XSEDEnet SP sites via AL2S.

XSEDENet has performance monitoring hosts at each of the XSEDE SP sites. The hosts are running perfSONAR pS-Performance Toolkit software and are attached at 10 Gb/s.
