Session Abstract

The Internet2 Land Speed Record contest (http://lsr.internet2.edu) provides researchers a venue to demonstrate how well TCP can stream data over the global Internet. In the past several years we have seen TCP speeds increase by an order of magnitude (now 6.6 Gbps) while the distance has increased by a factor of 3 (now over 15,000 Km). This session will cover a varity of topics on the LSR contest, including a history of the contest, views by the latest record settign team, and a panel discussion on the future directions for this contest. Lunch will be served.
