Asia Pacific Advanced Network (APAN) Country Update By Sureswaran Ramadass APAN Malaysia
Delegates from Malaysia for APAN Busan 2003 11 participants for APAN Currently heading 2 WG Multimedia IPv6
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.
TEMAN 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 worlds first Dark Fiber 2.5 Gig Backbone network to also support connectivity. Manis IPv6 research backbone already running

My Research Network Potential Use & Collaborative Projects aligned to MOSTEs priority research areas Governance of MYREN the Network Operations Team be transparent to the User Groups and the Steering Committee since the entire ops will be outsourced. Acceptable Use Policy TEMAN had an Acceptable Use Policy and could be used as a reference for MYREN
My Research Network Network Topologies, Service Fees and Connection to MYREN charges be at very low levels as compared to charges for commodity Internet connectivity to MYREN be at 2Mbps, 8Mbps & 16Mbps dependent on each universitys requirements Operations & Maintenance of MYREN agreed to the following operating service levels: A) NOC availability = 99.9% B) MYREN Network availability = 99.5% (1.5 days downtime / yr)
Joint Proposal Between Malaysia and Korea for TEIN Plan & Network
Phase SEA-BB :The First Phase Terrestrial links connecting Thailand and Singapore to NRGXchg. Implementation details to be worked out separately between Thailand & Sg. SINGAPORE(SINGAREN)SINGAPORE(SINGAREN) MALAYSIA NRG (PG) MALAYSIA THAILAND(BANGKOK)(TRCNet)THAILAND(BANGKOK)(TRCNet)
Phase SEA – BB: The Second Phase Terrestrial links from Malaysia to Philippines Indonesia 2 other neighbors (Undecided)
SEA-Backbone Link to North Asia SEA-Net will be able to connect to North Asia through the KR-MY link Link Owners of the KR-MY link will be MIC/KISDI (Korea) and MECM/Malaysian Research Net (Malaysia).
Trans-Eurasia Link to South-East Asia Korea France Malaysia TEIN II Link (45 Mbps) Enhancing the existing TEIN connection between KR/KISDI-FR/RENATER to 45Mbps. Extending TEIN link to MY from KR (March 2003)
Joint Proposal (formulated on 27 Nov, 02) In principle, Korea and Malaysia accepts to create the KR-MY link as link owners, together with EC as a main contributor. Eventually, the plan is for all the 7 ASEAN Countries in ASEM to be connected in one form or the other to this network. This network will also expand to include any new ASEAN members accepted into ASEM.
APAN-My Working Groups - APAN Malaysia Working Groups Agriculture MultimediaIPv6SatelliteMulticast Earth Monitoring Digital LibraryBio-Informatics
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
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.
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
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
Digital Library WG (Cont…) 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)
