The Architecture and Operations Advisory Council (AOAC) met on February 9. The AOAC unanimously endorsed two recommendations related to the operation of open colocation facilities, proposing that Internet2 formalize its investment in facilities that assure open cross connects. The AOAC heard the charge for the AOAC fee subcommittee, which will help guide the development of wave and connector fees on the new network. The sub-committee members are Roy Campbell, Dave Gift, Ron Hutchins and George Loftus. Two requests were granted to allocate unused wave capacity to LEARN to extend their network to an underserved part of Texas in support of K12 and the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. The AOAC also heard a brief summary of the LHC OPN work related to an evolution in the LHC data distribution architecture. An update on U.S. UCAN and the new Internet2 Network upgrade were also provided.
