Exploring Virtualisation and Monitoring Opportunities in Networking

(Timezone - Asia/Yerevan)
Asnet-Am (Yerevan, Armenia)


Yerevan, Armenia

The workshop will dive into the GN5-1 Project, where participants can explore the transformative power of virtualization techniques and effective monitoring strategies in enhancing network infrastructures.

Network professionals, administrators, and researchers from NRENs are invited to attend and gain a deeper understanding of the potential of virtualization technologies and monitoring opportunities within the context of NRENs.

One of the workshop's focuses will be Network Management as a Service (NMaaS), offering a portfolio of network management applications hosted as dedicated per-user instances in the cloud.

The workshop will feature an immersive WiFiMon, where participants will explore the comprehensive features and capabilities of GÉANT's WiFiMon service. WiFiMon empowers users to monitor and analyze WiFi network performance in real time, providing valuable insights into signal strength, link quality, bit rate, and other technical parameters. Through interactive exercises and demonstrations, participants will gain practical experience utilizing WiFiMon to manage and optimize WiFi network performance proactively.

The event is jointly organised by the GN5-1 GÉANT project and the Armenian NREN ASNET-AM, in partnership with the ''Establishment Of National Supercomputing Center of Armenia'' project.

The meeting will be hybrid.
