Logistical Networking Comes of Age
Time 09/29/04 01:15PM-02:30PM
Interest within the Internet2 community in the new synthesis of advanced networking and storage called Logistical Networking (LN) has been a growing steadily over the past few years. During the last week in May 2004, statistics reported for the Abilene backbone show 2.8TB of LN traffic, and LN traffic for the past 40 weeks falls along an exponentially increasing curve. This session will report on the deployed infrastructure, application communities, and the available software and services that are spurring this explosive growth. After a brief, high level introduction, our session will start with an update on the global, NSF funded, public infrastructure (300+ nodes, 30+TB) and the various private, multi-terabyte "Logistical Intranets"
