Overall description

With the emergence of dynamic hybrid networks, e-science now has the raw materials to create new instruments for exploring the universe and new models and environments for international collaboration. At SC06, the NSF DRAGON Project, in collaboration with SCinet and the XNet program, will demonstrate the integration of hybrid network services with scientific instruments, computation and storage facilities, high resolution video and visualization environments, and other cyber resources to create powerful new concepts in globally distributed applications.

Utilizing technology developed by DRAGON and its collaborating partners and colleagues, the demonstration will show how sophisticated and highly customized networks can be established dynamically and on demand to meet the needs of specific research teams and/or science programs. The DRAGON demonstration will dynamically establish application specific networks to incorporate end systems in several booths within the Tampa Convention Center. Further, these application specific networks will link to facilities in Japan, Europe, and across the US to create a /dedicated/ distributed environments for scientific collaboration.

This demonstration will combine hybrid network infrastructure from the US, Japan, and Europe, GMPLS network control software and middleware developed by DRAGON, and applications in the areas of electronic very long baseline interferometry (E-VLBI) and high resolution video distribution. Unlike previous XNET technologies, this demonstration does not focus on pure transport capacity of a network link or switch. Instead, it demonstrate an ability to establish entire network topologies dynamically that exhibit deterministic, predictable, and repeatable performance characteristics. The GMPLS enabled network will show multi-domain, multi-layer service provisioning at layer2 and the lambda layer. The Application Specific Topologies middleware developed by DRAGON will demonstrate XML (web services) based network descriptions being instantiated automatically end to end and across the world..

Within the SC06 venue, the demonstration can be seen first hand by visiting the participating organization's booths: Xnet (booth 1848), NASA (booth 917), ADVA Networks (booth 1542), Internet2 (booth 1451), and NICT (Osaka University, booth 443).
