Session Abstract

This session will discuss the mission, organizational structure, and current activities of The Quilt, which is a coalition of the major advanced regional R&E network organizations. The Quilt provides a dynamic forum where leaders from throughout the advanced research and education network community build on the intellectual capital and best practices of network service providers worldwide. Additionally, the Quilt aims to influence the national agenda on information technology infrastructure, with particular emphasis on optical networking. Within the organization, the Quilt promotes delivery of networking services at lower cost, higher performance, and greater reliability and security. It has recently been involved in developing a series of workshops that discuss, promote, and develop skills in optical networking and fiber optics.
