The Internet2 Network team continues to refine the overall traffic management plan, using the ability of MPLS to convert the segments on the backbone from discrete, multiple 100G channels to using LAGs when 100G segments are added. In January of 2018, we provided a list of links that had been augmented between November of 2017 and January of 2018. Since then, the team has continued to augment links including the following:

  • Atlanta to Chicago
  • Indianapolis to Chicago
  • Kansas City to Salt Lake City
  • Salt Lake City to Sunnyvale

Augments will continue in the coming months as the overall traffic management plan and routine traffic optimization dictate.
