Relationships and Partnerships: Do You Know the Way to Abilene? An Interactive Discussion about Challenges on the Road to Advanced Networking

Time 10/15/03 04:30PM-05:30PM

Session Abstract

Putting one foot in front of the other usually works to get us where we want to go. While this pedestrian model has gotten most of us from our campus desktops to the national backbone, transportation to the next generation of research networking requires jet engines, not Birkenstocks. Instead of step by step, we need a giant leap. How do those of us on the byways obtain highway and airport capabilities? Is there a larger role for Internet2 in helping us gain these capabilities? Our four panelists will offer their perspectives on this situation, and then we will open the discussion to all present. Hopefully, we will leave with some ideas about how to make this giant leap and how Internet2 can help us.
