Room Mount Vernon B

Session Abstract

The Global Network Architecture (GNA) technical working group is a broad-based international effort to create a framework for a next generation global high-performance network for research and education. The Global Summit provides an opportunity to provide updates on the progress of the GNA and to refine and extend the vision of the group. This session will begin with a short presentation by the Working Group Chairs on the current state of the GNA. This will be followed by 3 presentations on GNA “pathfinding” efforts: the ANA-200gb, the AGE-OX exchange facility in the UAE, and the Openwave 100G Project. The session will close with a community discussion on future directions of the GNA.
