Unless otherwise specified, please provide us with the data as of the 31 of january, 2005 (or as close to
that as possible).Note that the information that you provide will be made public through the Compendium
website. If you prefer, you could give e-mail addresses in the format [person at domain dot tld] or similar. If
you wish, information in separate sections can be made public only after you have given your explicit
approval that this can be done.



                                       Section one: USERS/CLIENTS

In this section, reference is made to the various levels of education. In using these, please refer to the
ISCED classification scheme; more information about this scheme is at
http://www.terena.nl/compendium/faq.html#isced). For the purposes of this Survey, ‘University’ level should
correspond to ISCED levels 5 and 6; ‘higher/further education’ corresponds to ISCED level 4; ‘secondary
education’ corresponds to ISCED levels 2 and 3 and ‘primary education’ to ISCED level 1.


1.1      Please give an estimate of the percentage of the institutions in each category in your
         country that are served by your NREN (even if not all institutions receive the same services):

 If possible, we would like to receive information here both about the number of Universities that are
connected and about the number of separate University sites that are connected (a separate site is any
school, faculty, facility or group of facilities that has a separate connection to the NREN or to the local MAN,
distinct from the main connection of that University).

1.8       Remarks or further information regarding section one:



                                         Section two: NETWORK

In earlier years, we wanted information here about the part of your network where aggregate traffic flows,
not the access circuits. This year, we would like to receive information about the entire network that is
managed by your organisation, excluding links outside your national territory.

2.1       What is the number of PoPs on your network (defined as the number of sites where you
          manage routing or switching equipment)?


2.2       What is the number of managed links (that carry production traffic) between PoPs on your
          network?

2.3       We would like to get a feeling for the aggregate capacity of your network. Please add the
          bandwidth*distance products [in Gbit/s*km] for all your managed links. A rough estimate is
          fine.

          ∑ linki*bandwidth(linki) =




                                                    4 / 15
2.4      We would like to know how you would describe your network in bandwidth terms. In other
         words, what is the current typical core usable backbone capacity on your network? (Please
         don’t count backup links in this.)
         [ ] 2 Mbit/s or below
         [ ] > 2 Mb/s, ≤ 34 Mb/s
         [ ] > 34 Mb/s, ≤ 155 Mb/s
         [ ] > 155 Mb/s, ≤ 622 Mb/s
         [ ] > 622 Mb/s, ≤ 1.2 Gb/s
         [ ] > 1.2 Gb/s, ≤ 5 Gb/s
         [ ] > 5 Gb/s, ≤ 10 Gb/s
         [ ] > 10 Gb/s

2.5      What do you think the situation will be in two years' time?


2.6      Please give us a list of the operational external connections you had in January 2005 (usable
         links excluding backup links):

To which network:                                                                Usable capacity in Mbit/s:

                                              Section three: TRAFFIC

In this section, we propose a distinction between different types of traffic by source or destination. Please
take a look at the figure below, which attempts to illustrate the distinctions in terminology.

T1 – all traffic from customer sites (outbound)
T2 – all traffic to customer sites (inbound)

T3 – all traffic to external network clouds
T4 – all traffic to the NREN backbone

External traffic = all traffic to GÉANT, the Commercial Internet, Internet exchanges, etc. (made up of T3
and T4 above)



                                                                                     2
3.1       Please give us an estimate of the total amount of traffic (in Terabytes ) in 2004 of two of the
          four types of traffic defined in the picture above:
          3.1.1 T3 (outbound external traffic):                 TB

          3.1.2    T4 (inbound external traffic):                   TB

2
    Note: 1 byte = 8 bits. Thus, a sustained average traffic of 1 Mb/s over one year equals 3.9 Terabyte.
                                                       6 / 15
3.2   If you have it available, we would also appreciate an estimate of the total amount of traffic in
      Terabytes in 2004 of the other two types of traffic as defined above:
      3.2.1 T1:                      TB

      3.2.2.    T2:                      TB

3.3   Approximately what percentage of the T3 and T4 traffic as given above was to/from the
      Commercial Internet?
      3.3.1 T3 (outbound external traffic):      %

      3.3.2     T4 (inbound external traffic):         %

3.4   What was the volume of traffic to/from your network in January 2005 (in Terabytes)?

      3.4.1     T3 (outbound external traffic):        TB

      3.4.2     T4 (inbound external traffic):         TB

      If available:

      3.4.3     T1:                                    TB
      3.4.4     T2:                                    TB


3.5   Please give us your rough estimate of where there is congestion (if any) in your network and
      of the percentage of the total number of client institutions that are affected by congestion at
      this level:
                 Campus LAN      Metropolitan      Access            NREN               External

3.6   Is your NREN aware of performance bottlenecks that are likely to be caused by multiple
      management domains? If so, could you give us some examples of this? E.g.:
      - performance bottlenecks:
      - problems of network security:
      - difficulties in establishing end-to-end or other premium services:

3.7   If you have it available, we would appreciate knowing the volume of IPv6 traffic to/from your
      network in January 2005 (in Terabytes)?
      3.7.1 T3 (outbound external traffic):          TB
      3.7.2 T4 (inbound external traffic):           TB

                                                  7 / 15
3.8     What percentage of your total traffic in your best estimate is currently IPv6 traffic?

3.9     By what percentage do you think IPv6 traffic will increase across your network in the next 2
        years?

3.10    Is your NREN funding or participating in IPv6-related activities other than providing IPv6
        connectivity? If so, please list these.


3.11    Does your network support IPv6 multicasting, or does it have plans to do so?

3.12    Which IPv6 services does your NREN support (e.g. DNS, SMTP, FTP mirrors, NREN websites
        etc)?

3.13    Remarks or further information regarding section three:


                                 Section four: FUNDING AND STAFFING

Some NRENs provide services only to the Research or Education communities in their country. Others
provide services to other sectors as well, for example because they administer the country-code tld. For the
sake of comparability, we would like to ask you to provide information only about the activities for the
Research or Education communities in your country in this section. For short, we have called these ‘NREN
activities’.

                                          Section five: SERVICES

Detailed information sharing and collaboration is becoming more and more important for many NRENs. The
purpose of the questions in this section is to give interested NRENs a first idea of who is doing what. It can
be used by others as a starting point for a further exchange of information, for example within the
framework of the TERENA Task Forces or the Joint Research Activities in the GN2 project. In this section,
you can provide more information if you have greater interest in a given area and provide less if the area is
of less interest to you.
