Motion to approve the purchase of 10x10 SMF Ciena optics for the Boise, Idaho add drop. The total cost of the Boise optics is estimated at $50,900.00 (including tax & shipping) for the 10x10 SMF optics. This would be covered out of the WRN maintenance fund. 10/09/14 7 Yes, 0 no, 0 abstain, 3 absent Yes
Motion to approve the 2014-2015 budget model with the allocations and projected expenses shown in the attached file, wrn-cost-allocation-2014-2015b.xls. This budget model contains estimated costs for the purchases of the 100G transponders and switches for the approved 100G project and will be updated with actual amounts when the invoices are received. The 100G allocation per member will not change and any expense adjustments will be made through the 2014-2015 maintenance fund (this can be seen where the estimated amount for the FRGP purchase is lower and the excess flows into the maintenance fund). Dave Reese Motions, Gil Gonzales Seconds. 06/05/14 9 yes, 0 no, 0 abstain, 1 absent Yes
RESOLUTION, motion to approve the purchase of Ciena, Cisco, and Brocade 100G hardware to upgrade the WRN network to 100G for a total cost of approximately $1,203,428.50 (there are additional unknown Brocade tax and shipping costs). Agree to use $405,107.07 of existing WRN maintenance funds to offset these costs. The remaining approximately $798,321.43 will be broken into five shares with Hawaii paying a quarter share, approximately $39,916.07, and CENIC, FRGP, PNWGP, and UNM paying the remaining full shares, approximately $189,601.34. CENIC will purchase the Ciena and Cisco hardware. UNM and the FRGP will purchase and own two Brocade switches each.

Here's the diagram roughly showing the proposed path (NOAA NLR path from Denver to Norman. This path carries the NOAA-Norman commodity, TIC, and NWAVE traffic so is important and has no back up to NLR right now). This path would be fairly straight forward to put in place ASAP to avoid any outages. This would use I2 AL2S and WRN paths.

I am asking approval from WRN to put this path in place and test. This would be a short term solution that we could discuss more fully as a long term solution with any costs or other conditions.
This requires no new hardware, but would use one of the DEN-CHI 10G lambdas. Are we willing to do an email vote to put this in place or do we need a call? Please note that I have included James Deaton since this requires ONENET's cooperation as well.

12/31/13 5 yes, 0 no, 0 abstain, 7 absent Yes

RESOLUTION, move that WPC approve participation in the University of New Mexico NSF ARI application #0963554 application to complete the following scope of work:

Scope of Work:

WRN will complete a 10G regional upgrade, which consists of a single additional wave between WRN institutions and Starlight (Chicago, IL). The region to be affected would include the topology from Denver, CO, to Kansas City, MO, to Chicago, IL.  The upgrade will provide additional
bandwidth to the science, engineering, research and education communities by making additional capacity available nationwide to a range of research projects and collaborations.  These upgrades use existing technology that is available and deployable within the next 6 months, providing immediate capacity to these projects.

In order for WRN to carry out this scope of work, we are working closely with Dr. Gilbert Gonzales; PI for NSF Award# 0963554, to receive a sub-agreement from the University of New Mexico to complete this project.  The total cost to complete WRN’s portion of this project is:
$446,777.21.  Of this total, a 10-year IRU in the amount of $11,391.10 annually.
=
WRN will fund the annual maintenance for the service after the first year of the IRU.  In addition, WRN will fund the service connection between Kansas City (MO) and Chicago (IL) for a not to exceed amount of $100,000 in total.

Adoption of a WRN New Member Acceptance Model
Resolved that the following WRN New Member Acceptance Model is hereby adopted to help address all current and future requests from institutions, regional and/or state networks and/or other entities to become WRN Members.

WRN New Member Acceptance Model
Within the general framework of the Western Regional Network Agreement, and its amendments, the following factors and principles shall be used to evaluate all requests to become a WRN Member and to help establish a financial model for each prospective new WRN Member’s participation that is equitable for existing members.   For all pending and future WRN membership requests and formulation of the related financial models, the factors and principles to be weighed and accommodated are:

      1. Whether the proposed new member was a direct connector to both NLR and Internet2 (a “NLR+I2 Direct Connector”) from their respective initiation and hence directly paid their share of the costs of establishing, and connecting with, and sustaining each of those infrastructures and backbone nodal fabrics, i.e., the “NLR + I2 Original Investment Costs”; and also whether and to the extent that the proposed member has directly or indirectly provided, or will provide, the underlying network infrastructure, including wavelength segments and/or switches and/or routers or other compensating resources that are used to support the “Shared Core WRN Infrastructure”, i.e.  defined as that backbone set of circuits/bandwidth and equipment that inter-attaches  the multiple major Internet2 and NLR connection points used by WRN Members, and/or they bring other substantial and commensurate value to WRN and WRN members via their membership contributions. If the proposed member was a “NLR+I2 Direct Connector”, and had contributed “NLR + I2 Original Investment Costs” for that infrastructure that were commensurate with the “Original WRN Members”, i.e. CENIC’s, FRGP’s, New Mexico GigaPoP’s and PNWGP’s investments in NLR and I2 and their investments in the Shared Core WRN Infrastructure, then the potential member will have the option of becoming a WRN Member by contributing money or other resources or use of assets to WRN in an amount the WRN Members agree is a fair share of the “Shared Core WRN Infrastructure” resources and also funding a prorata share of the on-going shared financial model
      2. If the proposed member was not a “NLR+I2 Direct Connector” but they presently are a member or affiliate of a WRN member who was a “NLR+I2 Direct Connector” and is providing “Shared Core WRN Infrastructure” then the potential member will have the option of either:
        1. becoming a WRN member by continuing to be a member or affiliate of that WRN member on terms that are mutually agreeable to those organizations and are also making what WRN members agree is an equitable contribution to ongoing costs, or,
        2. becoming a WRN member, but not continuing to be a member or affiliate of that WRN member by both:  contributing in money or other mutually acceptable resources to compensate the “NLR+I2 Direct Connector” of which they were a member; and contributing resources or other benefit to the overall WRN effort that is commensurate with paying a fair share of the costs of the “Shared Core WRN Infrastructure.”
      3. If the proposed member was neither a “NLR+I2 Direct Connector” nor are they a member or affiliate of a WRN member who was a “NLR+I2 Direct Connector” then the factors will include: the extent of the investment they commit to make: in order to “catch up” for not having equitably contributed to NLR and I2 direct connector costs, “Shared Core WRN Infrastructure”, and what they will bring in net value, benefit and resource to the WRN.
      4. The effect of changes in regional and national conditions including financial impacts for WRN and WRN members
      5. Any other factors as may be requested by any member.

In addition to the above factors, no WRN member shall exert undo pressure to coerce approval of new WRN members.
