Session Abstract

Over the past year, The Quilt has run a series of workshops focused on
the issues associated with using optical networking infrastructure as a basic building block for metro and regional aggregation. This session will provide summaries of the lessons learned during these workshop, observations of trends and issues in optical networking as well as some of the next steps in optical networking for regional aggregators.
Specific topics that will be addressed include: Quilt optical networking projects; optical network testing and test kits; RON fiber builds and current trends in optical networking. Information regarding the next Quilt Fiber Workshop will be provided as well. The Quilt is a
consortium of over 20 non-profit, advanced regional network organizations focused on providing a broad range of advanced networking services to their constituents as well as the national networking community as a whole.
