Spring 2004 Internet2 Member Meeting
The Spring 2004 Internet2 Member Meeting is a showcase for the collaborative efforts of its members. The network for the meeting owes its success to numerous member contributions. Chuck Wolfe of Georgetown University and Dan Magorian of Mid-Atlantic Crossroads (MAX) provided leadership and worked to ensure that the networking infrastructure was properly implemented. Special thanks is also due to the Georgetown UIS NTM group that worked long hours in establishing and supporting the network.
Yet, there would be no network without important hardware and software resources. Hewlett-Packard played a significant role in supporting the meeting by providing numerous 2500, 2800, and 5300 class switches used in the core and in connection of the session rooms. Cisco Systems also graciously provided 1200 series wireless Access Points that allow for 802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g wireless standards.
Researchers from the Hewlett-Packard Cambridge Research Laboratory's Metro project played a critical role in supporting the rich presence trial by deploying an extensive WiFi-based location service throughout the conference facility.
Finally, we greatly appreciate the Crystal Gateway Marriott Hotel and STSN for their continued accommodation and assistance in making the Spring 2004 Member Meeting a success.
