10 the context of an initial
Networking R&D over PREGINET IPv6 Network Measurements Traffic Engineering Multimedia over IP Network Applications Should be conducted in the context of an initial face-to-face meeting

11 IPv6 PREGINET project conducts R&D in IPv6 to make itself and the Philippines ready for the Next-Generation Internet Protocol. The team is pursuing the adoption of IPv6 in the Philippines through advocacy work, building partnerships with network providers and universities, and by continuously building competency in the technology. ASTI is implementing the project on Building a Philippine IPv6 Network, with University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman, Central Visayas Information Sharing Network (CVISNET), and Mindanao State University – Iligan Institute of Technology (MSU-IIT) as the pilot sites Website :

12 IPv6 Established Philippine IPv6 Network Testbed
Connected to the 6Bone through AI3 Connected to M6Bone by tunneling to Renater in France Aside from the deployment in ASTI, the project has established IPv6 connections with UP-EEE, UP Computer Center, Bitstop Inc., MSU-IIT, and CVISNET with services such as http, DNS, SMTP, Proxy, and SSH IPv6 M6Bone Tunnel MSU-IIT Tunnel CVISNET Tunnel BITSTOP Tunnel UPEEE–UPCC- -ASTI VLAN UPCC-ASTI VLAN M6Bone IPv6Multicast Router Renater, France MSU-IIT IPv6 Router Iligan City CVISNET IPv6 Router Cebu City Bitstop,Inc. IPv6 Tunnel Server UP EEE Router FreeBSD 4.2 IPv6-only Solaris 8 AI3 Japan ASTI- AI3 Satellite dish Switch UPCC Router FreeBSD 4.7 Server IPv6 Router using Zebra Bridge Website :

13 IPv6 Other IPv6 Activities:
Obtained IPv6 address block allocation from Asia Pacific Network Information Center (APNIC) – the first IPv6 allocation given to a Philippine-based network; Research on IPv6 Network Management with focus on tools for monitoring and characterizing the IPv6 network; Conducted an IPv6 Demonstration during the 28th AIC Conference in Manila and an IPv6 Tutorial during the 3rd National ECE Conference; and Conducted five (5) IPv6 Workshops at the UP-EEE, ASTI, and APC with a total of 109 participants Website :

14 Network Measurements PREGINET monitors the network and develops tools and systems necessary to maintain the efficiency and reliability of the PREGINET network. A fully-functional web-based NetMon system was developed. It has the ff. components: Network Weather Map/MRTG/MRTGViewer Remote Network Monitoring and Control via SMS Trouble Ticketing System with SMS Routers & Servers Flow-based Traffic Monitoring

15 Network Applications Consulted with prospective
partner institutions on the Digital Library initiatives of PREGINET Coordinated efforts with SCINET (Philippines’ Science Information Network) Installed Ganesha and Greenstone for testing, evaluation and uploading of content (team decided to focus on Greenstone) Development of OAI-based systems

16 Multimedia over IP Conducted videoconferencing sessions and demonstrations with PREGINET, AI3, APAN and SingaREN research partners Part of VideNet, a global virtual network for multimedia applications over IP

17 Multimedia over IP Evaluation of Videoconferencing/Videostreaming applications and interoperability of commercial and open source H.323 terminals Commercial H.323: Polycom – Via Video; Vcon – Vpoint; Vigo; Netmeeting Open H.323: Open Multi-Conferencing Unit (Open MCU); Open Gatekeeper; GNOME Meeting (Terminal); GUI-Based Videoconferencing Online Monitoring Evaluation of different data, audio and videoconferencing tools and applications for the MBONE ( IP Multicast Backbone) Established a Testbed for a Multicast-enabled PREGINET Network

18 Multimedia over IP Set-up a videostreaming server and service, a web-based archive of technical tutorials, trainings, workshops and events Tested and evaluated Voice over IP (VoIP), which is scheduled for deployment over the PREGINET network on the 3rd quarter of this year Came up with the User Manual for Videoconferencing Presented research results on the Access Grid, a large-scale group-to-group communication medium
