    • AARNet Copyright 2011AARNet Applications and Service Update James Sankar QRNO meeting 18 November 2011
    • AARNet Copyright 2011 Melbourne AARNet/QCIF Video Workshops •  Three workshops held (50/50 funded) –  Melbourne (18 November – Rydges/UniMelb), –  Perth (20 November – Curtin) –  Brisbane (24 Nov- UQ) Perth •  70 Attendees: –  Traditional AV/IT contacts, –  eResearch & Access Grid/EVO user base –  Teaching and Learning community –  Central & faculty IT areas Brisbane •  Institutions: –  CSIRO, Curtin, Deakin, ECU, Griffith, IVEC, JCU, John Paul College, Latrobe, Monash, QUT, SCU, RMIT, UniMelb, UoBallarat, UQ, USQ, UTas, UWA, UWS, Vic Schools, Victoria Univ, VPAC2
    • AARNet Copyright 2011Unified Communications Exchange•  What is it? –  Communications services beyond the enterprise –  Supports Enterprise Unified Communications – multivendor –  VoIP, Video, Instant Message, Presence beyond enterprise cloud –  Provide better monitoring and measurement of services•  How does it work? –  Connects “Sessions” together for communication –  Redundancy – Equipment is duplicated with failover support as standard –  Secure – hides critical servers from WWW + Secure connections to customers (prevents incidents like SIP attacks) –  Scalable – supports 000’s of simultaneous sessions –  Uses SIP & H.323 protocols to provide best VoIP/Video support –  Supports NAT/FireWall Traversal (connects parties together despite these obstacles) – good where sites don’t have expertise onsite –  Supports IPv6 (Future Proof)
