1 Dr. Sureswaran Ramadass
Asia Pacific Advanced Network (APAN) Country Update By Dr. Sureswaran Ramadass APAN 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.

3 APAN Network Topology

4 Network topology for AI3


6 Testbed Environment for Malaysian Multimedia
Applications and Networking (TEMAN) + Others TEMAN 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 Groups Multimedia IPv6 Satellite Multicast Digital Library Bio-Informatics Agriculture Earth Monitoring

17 Earth Monitoring And Disaster Warning WG
Objectives Disseminate fire detection products Smoke, Haze and Ash warning Torrential Rain and information and warning Regional hub for other observations missions

18 Initial Project Remote Monitoring System (RMS)

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 Projects Virtual 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 Activities Current Target Projects : Distributed Multimedia Conferencing System –Currently Implemented over all TEMAN and selected APAN sites Mini 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 region to develop a broad resource base of digital scholarly information resources and services to strengthen communication and collaboration among education, government and research institutes in the region to contribute to lifelong learning opportunities available to the populace of the northern region

22 Activities participants 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 Z39.50 to encourage members to develop search tools (directories, inventories, indexes) establish links with CLH (Connected Learning House) set up by the National Library to develop links with APAN (Asia-Pacific Advanced Network)
