terena networking conference 2009

On-demand network services for the Scientific Community - workshop & demonstrations

  • Time: Sunday 7 June, 10:00 - 14:30
  • Location: Parallel B, UMA-Lawschool, Avenida Louis Pasteur, 26
  • Please register here

This workshop demonstrates different approaches to the provisioning of on-demand network services for the scientific community. It tackles a number of implementations carried out by the European projects, including PHOSPHORUS (HARMONY, G2MPLS, Generic AAA Authorization and Middleware Frameworks) and GÉANT2 (AutoBahn). In particular, the workshop highlights the integration between transport networks, Grid middleware, applications and supporting tools like simulators by the presentation of solutions for seamless single-step provisioning of on-demand services across multi-domain networks. The presentations will be supported by live demonstrations.

During the event special gifts will be given to the workshop attendees through a lucky draw.

The workshop finishes with a lunch, where the participants will have a chance to discuss the technical and non-technical aspects of network provisioning and enjoy excellent regional cuisine.
