Contract for the the second DS3 from Hilo to the Summit has been signed. Delivery date is expected to be end of March.
Equipment, including two LightStream 1010s, one 7206VXR, two 2940 Fast Ethernet switches, and media convertors are all installed.
Twenty-four strands of fibers have been pulled between the IfA building and the hand-hole in front of Subaru. Facilities that want to be connected to the Hilo router need to get a pair of jumpers for connection in the hand-hole.
Pui Hin showed a diagram of the Hilo landing point and discussed implementation details. One IP subnet has been identified to be used for new addition to the MKOCN. The subnet will be used for the Hilo Ethernet as well as the PVCs between UH Manoa and Hilo, and UH Manoa and the Summit.
The PVCs need to be treated as point-to-point, each on a separate subnet. Pui Hin passed out IP numbers for the Hilo Ethernet connections.
