    • From Fiber to Wireless (and back)Enablers for CollaborationHarold Teunissen - SURFnet
    • SURF Inc. institutions Demand aggregation since 1985, not for profit2 Canada Connects: Productivity on the Move – May 27, 2010 – ING House
    • SURFnet -  SURFnet provides advanced services to the Dutch research and education community -  High performance networking -  Authentication and authorization services to provide secure access to the network and other resources -  Advanced multimedia collaboration tools, including high quality audio/video communication -  SURFnet plays a leading role in the development of national, European and world-wide networking NREN, National Research and Education Network3 Canada Connects: Productivity on the Move – May 27, 2010 – ING House
    • Our Canadian Connection -  CANARIE as peer -  CANARIE is Canadas Advanced Research and Innovation Network -  Pioneers on user controlled light paths and dark fiber that formed the basis for SURFnet’s nationwide network -  CANARIE en SURFnet founding fathers (o.a.) of the Global Lambda Integrated Facility (GLIF) -  Ciena (p.k.a. Nortel) as technology vendor -  SURFnet as testbed and showcase for prototypes, new products and enhanced features -  From 10 Gbps to 100 Gbps and beyond -  Multidomain Network Management à Open Source4 Canada Connects: Productivity on the Move – May 27, 2010 – ING House
    • Hybrid SURFnet6, more than just Internet -  Over 10,000 km dark fiber pairs, reaching all SURFnet connected institutes (>180) -  (indirectly) Providing access to over 1,000,000 users (academics, students and staff) -  Internet Connectivity of 1 and 10 Gbit/s, IPv4 en IPv6, Unicast and Multicast -  Dynamic Lightpaths and Optical Private Networks5 Canada Connects: Productivity on the Move – May 27, 2010 – ING House
    • The Netherlands as a hub KAUST 10Gb Jeddah6 Canada Connects: Productivity on the Move – May 27, 2010 – ING House 6
    • Beyond fibers -  In the early days -  Pilot UMTS and GPRS at selected campuses -  Wireless Point-to-Point for fast rollout -  Today -  eduroam is a (almost) global confederated wireless roaming service based on Wi-Fi -  Provided through the European collaboration of 36 national-level federations -  Hundreds of institutions are involved, the majority of which own and operate the service’s infrastructure7 Canada Connects: Productivity on the Move – May 27, 2010 – ING House
    • Trends in e-Infrastructure -  Science is becoming increasingly digital, needs to deal with increasing amounts of data and computational needs -  Simulations get ever more detailed -  Nanotechnology – design of new materials from the molecular scale -  Modelling and predicting complex systems -  Decoding the human genome -  Experimental Science uses ever more sophisticated sensors to make precise measurements -  Need high statistics -  Huge amounts of data -  Serves user communities around the world8 Canada Connects: Productivity on the Move – May 27, 2010 – ING House Source: EGEE
    • Changing Behaviours Hierarchical Self Organising Secrecy Transparency Loose Alliance Collaboration Sluggish Urgency Novelty Innovation Tunnel Vision Didactic9 Canada Connects: Productivity on the Move – May 27, 2010 – ING House
    • Levels of Collaboration Social Virtual Collaboration •  Virtual Organisations Interaction •  Web and Video Conferencing •  Presence •  Broadcast Collaboration Mobile Collaboration •  Application Integration •  Mobile Office / Classroom •  Audio Conferencing •  Interactive Video Services Content & Resource Collaboration •  E-Mail, Document Sharing •  Team Spaces, forum Information •  Presence & Instant Messaging Exchange •  Workflows10 Canada Connects: Productivity on the Move – May 27, 2010 – ING House
    • Modern Research needs an integrated e-Infrastructure -  Providing seamless access to and allowing the shared use of: -  Computing and storage facilities -  Generic application services -  Sensors and instruments -  Network resources -  Providing hassle free end-to-end connectivity and a single user interface and a single control plane for the allocation of multiple resources, from multiple domains and in multiple locations -  Close collaboration among providers and users will be essential to create this environment11 Canada Connects: Productivity on the Move – May 27, 2010 – ING House

    • Virtual Collaboration Federative, modular and open App 1 App 2 Teams Users14 Canada Connects: Productivity on the Move – May 27, 2010 – ING House
    • How to get access? Users Resources & Services Virtual Organization15 Institutions
    • Our challenges -  Today’s Internet is not good enough to support the needed e-Infrastructure for research -  No guaranteed services on a “best effort” network -  Fit for delay tolerant, many-to-many communication -  To support an e-Infrastructure Research networks will have to do better... -  Provide guaranteed performance for large data flows and time-critical applications -  Support increasingly heterogeneous access methods -  Take into account security and environmental issues -  … while keeping the successful end-to-end principle of the internet16 Canada Connects: Productivity on the Move – May 27, 2010 – ING House
    • Key Take Aways -  Multi-level approach to support true collaboration -  Need for ubiquitous broadband connectivity wired and wireless for SURFnet’s contingency -  Bandwidth seen as free by users (academics, students, and staff) -  Defragmented of middleware platforms -  High common-denominator of devices -  Ubiquity of mobile devices -  Standardization17 Canada Connects: Productivity on the Move – May 27, 2010 – ING House
