Advanced TCP-Based Networking, Testbed Development and Dynamic Bandwidth Provisioning

Time 09/28/04 08:30AM-10:30AM

Session Abstract

In this session we present current efforts in designing, testing, provisioning and monitoring the high speed networks for transferring large scientific datasets across large geographical distance. The presentations focus on the following areas that are of practical significance to the successful construction and operation of the next generation e-sciences: (1) FAST, a next generation TCP protocol designed to meet the challenges of LFNs (Long Fat Networks); (2) Wan-in-lab, a one-of-a-kind wide area networking testbed constructed in a lab environment that is characterized by a unique combination of user controllability and experimentation fidelity; (3) MonALISA, a distributed system monitoring architecture widely used in network measurement and performance monitoring, (4) GridJIT, a dynamic lightpath provisioning scheme to satisfy specific user demand and enable efficient network resource utilization and (5) Experimentation design on National Lambda Rail (NLR). We believe these set of presentations provide a well-rounded perspective on the state-of-the-art development of the high-performance networks, and will serve the interests of a wide audience of network engineers, system administrators and academic researchers.
