This livestream has concluded. The archive video will be posted here. Archives can take up to two weeks to be posted.

Session Abstract

Around the world, regional and state networks play a critical role in the future of a country's advanced research and education network infrastructure. Trends of research and education networks around the world will be discussed with a focus on similarities and differences between the countries' R&E networks. Information for this session was collected during the last year by The Quilt/MIDnet Case Study Project, http://www.thequilt.net/business_case_project.html, The TERENA Compendium, http://www.terena.org/activities/compendium/, and The APAN Compendium and will include organizational structure, network architecture, funding models, services and future directions.
This session is a follow up to sessions that have taken place at both the Fall 2007 and Spring 2008 Member meetings, and will include new insights into additional models that R&E networks have in place. We anticipate having a dynamic discussion on challenges and opportunities.
