Slide 1: Talking Points Research Recommendations for the Broadband Taskforce Washington, DC Microsoft Corporation November 23, 2009 Victor Bahl
Slide 2: Observations US is 20th in household broadband use - Strategy Analytics (June 2009) • Number of users is going up, consumption of data per user is going up – Lots of studies already show this – Social networking (e.g. micro-blogging), multimedia downloads (e.g. Hulu, YouTube), Gaming (e.g. Xbox Live), 2D video conferencing (e.g. Windows Live), file sharing & collaboration (e.g. SharePoint), Cloud Storage (e.g. Azure),… • NextGen Applications at Microsoft Research: – Immersive video conferencing, 3D Telemedicine, Virtual immersive classrooms, Remote health monitoring,, Augmented reality, Memory assistance, Natural gesture computing, Collaborative development,….. – These rich media applications require large amounts of data being shipped between users & between machines • Wireless use is on the rise: 56% of Americans have accessed Internet via wireless networks (Pew Internet & American Life Project, April 2009) – 39% of adults access it through wireless laptop; 1/3rd of all Americans through cell phones & SmartPhones; 1/5th of Americans access Internet everyday via a mobile device • 3G WAN throughput & Latency are not enough for next generation
Slide 3: Broadband Definition(s) Proposals on the Table Google 5+ Mbps for all Americans IEEE-USA 20+ Mbps with 90% availability within 5 years; 100+ Mbps to all businesses & households within 10 years EDUCASE 100 Mbps to every home; 100 Mbps – 1 Gbps for small public institutions (schools & libraries); multi-Gbps to larger institutes (colleges & hospitals) Microsoft’s Baseline Proposal 100 Mbps symmetric to anchor Institutes (K-12 schools, higher education institutions, libraries, hospitals, community hubs) adjusted for the size of the institute — Distribution from anchor institutes to neighboring communities All agree definition should be periodically updated to match capabilities & ubiquity 11/23/2009 Victor Bahl, Microsoft
Slide 4: MSR’s Broadband Initiatives • Community Mesh Networking (incl. rural Internet, Blanket city-wide coverage) • Mesh Networking Academic Kit 2005 & 2007 – a research & teaching aid for broadband connectivity (used in over 700+ Universities worldwide) • Digital Inclusion Program (incl. financial support for University research on broadband Internet connectivity in rural areas) • Ongoing support for Internet-wide research • On-going Financial support for Internet2 • SORA (SOftware Defined RAdio’s) Academic Program • KNOWS (Kognitive Networking Over White Spaces) • Launched in 2009 to further research in Cognitive Wireless Networking (incl. hardware and software kit) • Research effort to demonstrate the power of white spaces, proof-of-concepts and testing of policy decisions,… • DySPAN, MobiCom, SIGCOMM, MobiSys, INFOCOM, MobiHoc, SIGMETRICs,… • Financial and Organizational Support for Conference & Workshops • Academic Summits (since 2003) & University Sponsorships 11/23/2009 Victor Bahl, Microsoft • An open forum for discussions of research results and for paving the path forward • MIT, Wisconsin, UT Austin, Columbia, Waterloo, …
Slide 5: Pain Points for Researchers working on broadband networking • Limited availability of network traces – Analysis of real data can improve efficiencies and save millions of $$ (e.g. rigorous data analysis killed the field of Cooperative Caching) • Limited or no access to network stacks – Only unlicensed spectrum has fueled wireless research • Limited or no access to wide-area network components – Deployment & testing of new ideas on Internet-scale has been extremely difficult • Limited testbeds & experimental work; heavy dependence on industry for hardware innovations – Very little work on next generation wireless and wired networking hardware platforms • Limited jobs in networking research – Few industry research labs. (MSR is an exception); University hiring dictated by changing funding priorities (networking not being high in the priority) • Few options for longer term (grand vision) research funding 11/23/2009 – Pressure on academics to produce quick results and focus on publishing papers. – Extremely hard to create alternatives (e.g. 100x100 project from CMU et. a. exception)
Slide 6: Recommendations • Federal agencies (e.g. FCC, NSF,) should work closely to foster research in futureproof policies, policy enforcement, and potentially breakthrough technologies – Engage deeply with research community (educate researchers on policy implications) • Policy has implications on research (e.g. UWB) • Research (e.g. Cooperative Sensing, wide-band sensing, …) has policy implications • Foster Entry of new broadband providers – Increase competitiveness & innovation – Considerations for helping new broadband providers should include: • Allowing network monitoring & network trace gathering (after anonymizing them) • Allowing experimentation with newer technologies • Allowing access to the networking stack & components • Finalize rules for unlicensed use of White Space – Will revive community mesh networking, rural connectivity, blanket city-wide coverage,… – (Unlicensed spectrum) will lead to innovation (e.g. OFDM, MIMO, Network Coding,…) – Will lead to additional research on opportunistic networking – Help understand how spectrum is being used (or not used) – Provide concrete justification for opening up additional lower (< 1 GHz) frequency bands – Research that seeks to understand communications in the lower frequency bands Victor Bahl, Microsoft • Work with NSF on a National Spectrum Telescope with Real-time Updates 11/23/2009
Slide 7: Recommendations (cont.) • Encourage fundamental research in Dynamic Spectrum Access & Cognitive Wireless Networking – Has the potential to become a disruptive technology • Collaborate with NSF on National Network Trace Data Repository – Possibly government networks could contribute Petabytes of anonymized network traces – Enable researchers to analyze traffic leading to improved network architecture, design, and protocols • Encourage researchers to build common reusable platforms – Lead to community building ; Become a teaching resource – Sharing of hardware & software accelerates innovations • E.g. MSR’s Mesh Networking Kit, MSR’s SORA Platform, RICE’s WARP,… • Good research takes times. Fund collaborative and longer term Research Victor Bahl, Microsoft – Up to 5 years for 5-10 PIs in multiple institutes (e.g. 100x100 project at CMU et. al.) 11/23/2009
Slide 8: Summing up • Set exciting goals (100 Mbps to Anchor Institutes is achievable!) – Future-Proof National Broadband Plan – Make it easier for researchers to deploy monitoring tools to understand network use (will lead to operational efficiencies) • Researchers are motivated by funding and open platforms – Broadband Access must remain a national priority – Shepherded targeted funding will lead to innovations in broadband networking while creating next generation thinkers. – Will lead to new commodity hardware that unleashes research on “opportunistic networks” making spectrum bottleneck a non-issue • Complete Rule-Making on Unlicensed White Spaces • National Spectrum Telescope – Identify additional consistently unused sub-GHz spectrum, to be opened up for “opportunistic networking” enabling NextGen Rich media applications. Victor Bahl, Microsoft 11/23/2009
Slide 9: Reading Material • • • • Network Science and Engineering (NetSE) Research Agenda, Report of the Network Science and Engineering Council (September 2009) NSF Workshop on Future Wireless Communication Networks, Arlington, VA (November 2-3, 2009) Future Directions in Cognitive Radio Network Research, NSF Workshop Report, (March 9-10, 2009) Totally Connected Wired and Wireless, Report by iN2015 Infocomm Infrastructure, Services and Technology Development sub-Committee, (Singapore Science Commission) Work Programme 2009 and Work Programme 2010, Cooperation Theme3, Information and Communications Technologies European Commission (July 2009) • • Future Internet Design (FIND) Observer Panel Report, National Science Foundation (April 2009) 11/23/2009 Victor Bahl, Microsoft
