1 Dr. Sureswaran Ramadass Asia Pacific Advanced Network (APAN)Country UpdateByDr. Sureswaran RamadassAPAN Malaysia
2 APAN Malaysia- APAN-My was formed in 1997 to promote advanced research in network technologies using High Bandwidth networks. One of the main purposes of APAN-My is to link the main research network within Malaysia.APAN Malaysia is an active member of APAN. APAN-MY heads the Multimedia Working Group and the IPV6 WG and also involve in numerous other APAN activities.
6 Testbed Environment for Malaysian Multimedia Applications and Networking (TEMAN) + OthersTEMAN was formed in 1997 by a collaborative effort between the Government, Universities and Telecommunication Companies.It has setup a high speed 155 Mbit network testbed for research and development. This has expanded to include more universities. Satellite Bandwidth Obtained for research as well.Now have support from the world’s first Dark Fiber 2.5 Gig Backbone network to also support connectivity.Manis IPv6 research backbone already running
16 Working Groups- APAN Malaysia Working GroupsMultimediaIPv6SatelliteMulticastDigital LibraryBio-InformaticsAgricultureEarth Monitoring
17 Earth Monitoring And Disaster Warning WG ObjectivesDisseminate fire detection productsSmoke, Haze and Ash warningTorrential Rain and information and warningRegional hub for other observations missions
19 Multimedia WG New Charter/Update Charter Success of old charter: Spinning-off newer WGs and Technology (Digital Video etc.)Some took off, and some did not.Creating a video conferencing network between Temasek Poly, USM, Keio Univ and AIT. AI3 NOC has setup server and being used. Distance edu classes will be conducted using this system. APAN NOC has setup the MCS server which was used in this conference.New ProjectsVirtual Gaming/Conferencing/ in an immersive cave type environment.Current commitments from NRG USM, Temasek Poly for Phase 1 and possibly ANU and AIT for Phase 2. Markus is also providing some input about GRID in this area.
20 ActivitiesCurrent Target Projects :Distributed Multimedia ConferencingSystem –Currently Implemented over all TEMAN and selected APAN sitesMini Cave/Tele-Immersion – Future project among TEMAN and APAN/AI3 members
21 Digital Library WG Objectives to develop the infrastructure (common standards and protocols) that will advance the use and utility of digital resources by the higher education community in the regionto develop a broad resource base of digital scholarly information resources and servicesto strengthen communication and collaboration among education, government and research institutes in the regionto contribute to lifelong learning opportunities available to the populace of the northern region
22 Activitiesparticipants will prepare their OPAC (On-line Public Access Catalogue) for inclusion on the website. The OPAC should be in a universally accepted format e.g.MARC (Machine readable Cataloguing) or standards such as Z39.50to encourage members to develop search tools (directories, inventories, indexes)establish links with CLH (Connected Learning House) set up by the National Libraryto develop links with APAN (Asia-Pacific Advanced Network)

24 Agriculture WG Objectives Facilitate the sharing and exchange of data between organisationsFacilitate public access to agricultureProvide efficient and timely electronic distribution of information between officesprovide a national information network to be shared by agriculture organisations
25 Objectivesprovide organisations participating in the AGROLINK facilities to access international databases.complement the services provided by MAMPU through the Civil Service Link (CSL) on matters relating to the agriculture
26 Satellite WG Objectives To provide a stable link between USM and APAN backboneTo provide the link to other working group for their research
27 ProjectsReliable Multicast FTP for satellite linkSetting up MCS Ver 4 (Multipoint Multimedia Conferencing)Satellite based high speed multimedia accessSatellite Distance Education Program
28 IPv6 WGObjectivesParticipate and contribute for protocol standard developmentSoon to be a RFC and Int. DraftTo investigate and assist the government and organizations plan for the transition from IPv4 to IPv6.To experiment and develop Internet applications using new IPv6 specifications.Promote IPv6 activities at National Level among Universities
29 Conference and IETF participation Activities & ProjectsConference and IETF participationTesting IPv6 NOC in MalaysiaProviding an IPv6 testbed with APAN connectivity for research activities.Porting existing MCS application to IPv6Quality Of Service experiments on IPv6Network monitoring and management for IPv6.Seminars & Workshop
