TransPacific R&E Networking: A Panel on Current and Future State

Time 05/09/18 08:45AM-10:00AM

Room Pacific 14-15

Session Abstract

Research and Education networking has been steadily growing over the last few years as computing power grows in Asia by leaps and bounds. The demand on capacity between the Asia region and the US has likewise been growing. There is no sign of a slowdown as newer and more sophisticated projects such as Belle-2 in Japan, the High Luminosity phase of the LHC (HL-LHC) in Switzerland, and the SKA in Australia and South Africa will put even greater demands on trans-oceanic capacity. To respond to this, research and education networks are looking for new ways to make sure the needs of these science drivers are met. The panelists will each give a brief overview of recent developments in networking deployments, exchange points and collaborations in our community. Because submarine cable capacity is a critical part of the infrastructure, Jamie Curtis from REANNZ will discuss our plans for how REANNZ will use capacity on the new Hawaiki cable, and how that can contribute to the global R&E network including insights to the design and construction process of the 14,000km (8,700mile) submarine system. The panelists will then take questions from the audience.
