Time 10/03/01 01:15PM-02:30PM

Session Abstract

The role of advanced regional network organizations, or gigaPoPs, as points of resource coordination and development of networking expertise among their constituencies is ever-expanding. Increasingly, members of networking communities within Internet2 are looking to gigaPoPs for guidance on appropriate technology development and deployment and as venues for peer-to-peer skills transfer. This session will feature several regional resource coordination initiatives and underscore the important role that gigaPoPs can play in supporting advanced networking for research and education.
