With a full-day meeting, we will focus on presentations and discussion on future network architectures that R&E networking will need to manage the next leap in capacity requirements from next-generation Research Infrastructures (HL-LHC, SKA, LSST, and more). We will address technologies such as spectrum sharing, underlay and overlay networking, L2 packet inspection, P4, and more, and discuss ideas for how these technologies can be used by R&E networks to do traffic engineering, capacity management, and support for demanding research applications.
Please find the agenda on the SIG-NGN wiki: https://wiki.geant.org/display/SIGNGN/9th+SIG-NGN+Meeting
The meeting is open for anyone interested in the topics to attend.
We would also like to bring your attention to the NORDUnet Conference programme, specifically the sessions relevant for next generation networking. There will be sessions and presentations about network research, time and frequency services, quantum computing and networking, transarctic cables, optical cables as sensors, HPC and networking, automation in the campus network. The programme will be announced shortly.
The meeting will be co-located with the NORDUnet Conference 2022:
