GigaPoP and RONs Coordination Group

Time 09/20/05 06:30PM-08:00PM

Session Abstract

The GigaPoP Coordination Group has been organized as an affinity/communications group with membership including managers from across the Internet2 gigaPoPs and program managers from within Internet2. We would like to expand this now to also include representatives from Regional Optical Networking organizations (RONs).

The purpose of the group is to provide a regular, ongoing forum for peer networking, information sharing, and generally fostering open communications among mid-level managers in the gigaPoPs, RONs and Internet2. The group's primary focus is on programmatic - rather than technical - issues, such as member outreach, expanded access models, Internet2 membership policies and procedures, communications tools, etc.
