TERENA Network Architects Workshop

Target Audience

The target audience is the NREN people (including the participants of the GN3 JRA1 activity) responsible for network architecture design under the CTO or Head of Infrastructure offices but above network operations (NOC) or at least at Tier-3 NOC. The invitation is extended to DANTE, NORDUnet, other regional providers, as well as TERENA global peers at other world regions. Selected commercial partners will be invited to the GN3 JRA1 workshop.

Potential Topics

The three day event starts with the GN3 JRA1 Workshop that reports about the outcome of the activity regarding core network solutions such as Ethernet OAM, PBB-TE, EoMPLS and MPLS-TP. Technologies such as Syncronous Ethernet, Time Sensitive Transport and Open Flow will be discussed in addition to OTN and Control Plane, Alien Waves and Photonic Services. Following on from this, the TERENA Network Architects Workshop will build on this knowledge and share experiences in building the NREN's next-generation networks. Network evolution, design and dimensioning, deployments, as well as novel network architecture and services will be discussed. Design procedures, useful tools, and experiences in commercial equipment or capacity procurements will be shared. The workshop will be closed by an open panel discussion providing recommendations.

The agenda is still flexible, if you plan to come and give a talk to us, please contact Peter Szegedi at TERENA.
