Application Specific Networks for Dynamic Hybrid Services
Time 04/25/06 01:15PM-02:30PM
Emerging network services that provision dedicated network resources at the user's request are enabling new models for distributed global networked applications and services. These concepts go beyond simply provisioning point to point light paths or circuits, and embrace the notion that the network is an application resource that can be formally specified, virtualized, managed and utilized in much the same way as computational resources, scientific instruments, or other application resources. Indeed, by providing dynamic and dedicated network resources to the application/user, a new generation of advanced service oriented networks can be conceived and realized. In this talk, we will present the notion of Application Specific Topologies and prototype implementation within the DRAGON and HOPI projects, and describe several new network service environments based upon these ideas.
