Session Abstract

For several years, SuperComputing, APAN, CANS and other meetings have featured demonstrations of the use of 100G networks, but what does it take to use them as part of a normal day-to-day application? As we learn more about dealing with elephant flows and larger than 10G bandwidth pipes, we’re learning that many rules of thumb no longer apply, and we have to rethink approaches to make this new platform useable to domain scientists.

This session will speak to real-life experiences of using 100G networks as part of a normal science process. It will explain what had to be done to make this feasible, and the lessons learned as part of this process. Suggestions will be offered both in the design of a 100G network as well as adaptation strategies for applications, so this session will have potential interest to network engineers as well as end users.
