RONs: Moving Towards the Future

Time 02/04/09 11:20AM-11:50AM

Session Abstract

Is your Regional Optical Network ready for big science applications?

Large scale projects such as LHC, e-VLBI, LIGO, and UltraGrid and others are here or will be soon. These applications have the potential to require major network upgrades due to their large bandwidth requirements and the need to make scattered resources available over a high-speed, low latency network. In this panel discussion, representatives of several RONs will discuss how their networks are preparing to handle the demands of this set of applications and how they are positioning their RONs for addressing the needs of their constituent member university researchers.
