Partnerships SURF Foundation – Sept 1998 UKERNA and JISC – Feb 1999
Internet2 emphases Infrastructure Network –National backbone –Regional/state Network services –Native, high-performance v6 –Native multicast –Measurement infrastructure Middleware –Campus-wide, inter-institutional Collaboration –Initial H.323 infrastructure Applications Science users: HENP, NEESgrid, astronomy, bio/health Teaching and learning – arts/humanities End to End Performance
Areas for Collaboration? Infrastructure and Research SURFnet – UKERNA – Internet2 collaboration Native v6 deployment and campus training End to end performance measurement infrastructure Measurement infrastructure current focus Future of interconnection – transport technologies
Areas for Collaboration continued ?Education and Electronic Resources Access to electronic resources – motivation behind e.g. Shibboleth project – Shib pilot with content providers Educause, CNI
Areas for Collaboration continued Middleware Authorization transport – Internet2 Shibboleth Interoperability with UK, NL implementations? Bridge certificate authority? Digital Rights Management Authorization In education mode at moment – how do higher ed DRM needs differ from Hollywoods? Integration with/support of grid NMI package of software UK, NL software that can be included?
Areas for Collaboration continued Organisations and strategies IPR – developing strategy, middleware work pushing this Holding copyright for pieces of software developed as part of I2MI? Strategies related to deployment/training at campus level? Outreach to user community on campus?
