TRANSPAC2TRANSPAC2 Significant IRNC-2005 Successes 1.Supporting science collaborations, both large and small. You have seen excellent examples of supporting large scale science collaborations. Not all IRNC supported science collaborations are >1Gbps. Pakistan is an excellent case in point. 2. Leverage. All IRNC projects are incredibly leveraged, usually by a factor of 10 or more. That is now SOP. IRNC projects should connect multi- country networks, or at minimum countries to US scientists 3.Quantitatively understanding more about network traffic (a.k.a. measurement) and routing. But, there is more work to do in these areas. 4.Understanding threats within network traffic (a.k.a. security). Unclear this is a success…it is an area that needs more emphasis

TRANSPAC2TRANSPAC2 Supporting international connections and collaborations in the future 1.Supporting connections. Close IRNC service coordination and collaborations yield valuable results. Measurement is an example and needs continued emphasis. Security needs more direct attention in the next solicitation. New inter-domain services require joint US-international development. This might be addressed by small, out-of-band awards or a within-project formal technical aspect. 2.Supporting collaborations. 2007 is not 2015. Science needs and network infrastructure capabilities will evolve. Linkage of networking efforts with the needs/requirements of science is critical. Coordination of US face to international science is equally critical. Integration of networking efforts with other international R/E networks will be required.
