NRENs in the Dissemination of Innovative, Low Cost Global Solutions: From Universities to the World

Time 04/09/14 08:45AM-10:00AM

Room Plaza Court 1

Session Abstract

Since 2002, RNP has has collaborated with the Brazilian research community in the joint development of advanced network services and products, funded by RNP. 11 years and 80 R&D projects later, we have significant results that can be, and have been, shared with sister NRENs, R&E institutions and industry, to motivate innovative partnerships for collaborative development, including the deployment of Global Service Models. In this session, we will present two of these results. SCIFI is an open source intelligent control system for WiFi networks. The project, developed at the Fluminense Federal University (UFF), has built an extensible platform, including all the tools needed for installing, operating, securing and managing wireless networks, using low cost hardware and free software. MConf is an open source Web conferencing system that enables the creation of a distributed and scalable network of Web conferencing servers, developed at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS). In addition to introducing MConf, the presentation will also propose the creation of a Global Web Conferencing Experimental Service for R&E, connecting MConf-based web conferencing services from different NRENs, to enable the discussion, testing and experimentation of a global and sustainable model.
