2 1 The Internet Education Equal Access Foundation, and the Formation of a Global Information Society: The Global Quilt World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) Pan European Regional Ministerial Conference November 9, 2002 Bucharest, Romania Dr. Donald R. Riley Chair, IEEAF (www.ieeaf.org) Vice President and CIO University of Maryland, College Park Tel ; Fax

3 2 The Cornerstone of the Information Society is Education and Research Universities and colleges are key to providing the ‘human infrastructure’ necessary for any country to participate in the global information society They train and educate the young people that are needed to create, operate and maintain the technical infrastructure and applications. They create the base for innovation and entrepreneurship

4 3 Strengthen the Cornerstone of Education by Enabling Bandwidth Most universities and colleges in developing countries are severely crippled by totally inadequate bandwidth and connectivity to their colleagues and sister institutions around the country and around the world Public policy and initiatives for the Information Society should start with the universities and colleges and recognize their importance for overall economic development.

5 4 New Public-Private Partnerships Needed Global telecomm build-out of technical infrastructure provides new possibilities for economic development Current market conditions have resulted in great capacities which are currently going unused -- cannot be sold. As a matter of social responsibility, this unused capacity could be made available for stimulating future applications and markets -- by donation to use by research and education institutions. Public-private partnerships involving government, universities and private sector are needed

6 5 New Public-Private Partnerships Needed The IEEAF represents one such partnership whose goal is to obtain donations of international bandwidth to enable a global collaboration in research and education Current donations have already linked US and Europe, and will soon link US and Asia-Pacific

7 6 IEEAF Objectives Act to insure enhance educational access to bandwidth for educational institutions and their academic, research and services/outreach needs. Promote Partnerships with government/private entities/ educational institutions to distribute education content across networks, nations,and on a truly global basis Promote and/or operate a low cost reliable repository of access and network resources and information to achieve these capabilities for educational purposes Perform Asset Management for the Foundation, its members and associates on a global basis for educational purposes "Non Nobis Solo" (Not by ourselves alone)

8 7 IEEAF Strategies To achieve the vision of IEEAF, we intend to create frameworks and alliances between University and other educational leadership groups, industry and political/governmental leaders. Methods of helping IEEAF include donations of physical facilities (co-location and riser space), equipment, licenses to "rights of way","dark fiber" or conduits at selected points of build-out of the US and global fiber-optical network, or “wave-lengths”. Such donations will be a principal means of connectivity and linkage for educational institutions to conduct teaching and learning. "Non Nobis Solo" (Not by ourselves alone)

9 8 EC/GEANT Strategies Exploiting the “cooperative model” as a global model to advance global networking for our collective benefit is a challenge worth pursuing!!! Spyros Konidaris. European Commission 21 February 2002 "Non Nobis Solo" (Not by ourselves alone)

10 9 IEEAF Organization Honest Broker Group (IEEAF) Accepting assets Matching Corp assets w/Educational needs Advocate for assets on behalf of Education Granting of assets as Free Use licenses

11 10 IEEAF Board of Directors Indiana University International Member John Charles (CSU Hayward) Jerry Hanley (Cal Poly SLO) John Silvester (Univ. of So.Cal) Ed Fantegrossi David Lassner (Univ. of Hawaii) Ron Johnson (Univ. of Washington) Don Riley Steve Corbato Michael McRobbie (TBD) CENIC GEO (Geographic Network Affiliates, Intl.) PI2 (Pacific Internet2 Coalition) P/NG (Pacific/Northwest Gigapop) University of Maryland UCAID (University Corporation for Advanced Internet Development)

12 11 GEO builds carrier hotel buildings and supports the IEEAF goals of helping to solve the digital divide. GEO - The Catalyst Government SubmarineFiberTerrestialFiber Universities +

13 12 CENIC-GEO MOU led to IEEAF GEO will donate real estate 15K sq.ft. in each of two new International carrier hotels (Hayward/CA, MD/DC) 200 sq.ft. in each of other facilities GEO will get business partners (wet fiber/dry fiber/equipment/etc.) to donate as part of business negotiations

14 13 Netherlands Example: Project “Glasbak” New cable landing: Eemshaven (near Groningen) New telecom carrier hotel: Groningen Zernicke Research Park adjacent to University of Groningen Groningen Internet Exchange (GNIX) New fiber backhaul to major Internet exchanges Essent Kabelcom Amsterdam to Groningen to Hamburg + additional Europe New R&D and Economic Development Opportunities

32 31 Global Quilt Partnership This evolving ‘Global Quilt’ can be key enabler to reduce/eliminate ‘Bandwidth Divide’ If we reduce/eliminate the Bandwidth Divide, we will have then enabled bright people around the world to collaborate and to innovate. When you no longer are limited by the bandwidth limitations, then you can focus on what you really need/want to do -- the applications! How can we collaborate to accelerate the development of the Global Quilt and to maximize the benefits?
