The capacity limitations at the venue (1Gbps) prevented use of uncompressed</p></li><li><p>Uncompressed HDTV interactive video (1.4Gbps) Remember this is a single application,seven streams of uncompressed HDTV would saturate a 10Gbps link!The paths used for the Pittsburgh demo wereCanberra to Sydney on AARNet3 (10Gbps)Sydney to Hillsboro on SXTransPORT (10Gbps)Hillsboro to Portland to Seattle on NLR (10Gbps)Seattle to Pittsburgh on NLR (10Gbps)The first three paths were used for the PTC demo, but with an additional drop at Kahe Point, Oahu to Honolulu</p></li><li><p>SC2004 images</p></li><li><p>SC2004 images</p></li><li><p>SC2004 images</p></li><li><p>Futures for research networking - Hybrid Optical Packet NetworksRouted networks still good for most usersSome users have special needsmassive data transfersuse protocols that could impact others, or others impact themBest to remove them to their own lambdas, to contain them in a way that satisfies their needs without detrimental impact on others (and vice-versa)</p></li><li><p>Global Lambda Infrastructure Facility (GLIF)A facility to support the real-time transfer of massive amounts of data to facilitate emerging e-research initiativesLambda infrastructure owners pool circuits not in use for their own requirements to make available to other members on an agreed basisTo be based on interconnect or access agreementsRegister will be maintained with conditions as basis of scheduling Lightweight governance structure</p></li><li><p>Meshing SXTransPORT into GLIFHybrid Optical Packet approachRetain the northern circuit (to Oahu and Seattle) as 10Gbps layer 3Deploy the southern circuit (to Spencer Beach (and Mauna Kea) as switched lightpath (possibly 8 x 1 Gbps) Use several of the 1 Gbps circuits for circuit swapping (eg with CANARIE or SURFnet) or for the GLIF pool</p></li><li><p>Global Lambda Integrated FacilityPredicted Bandwidth for Scheduled Experiments, March 2005www.glif.is</p></li><li><p>Global Lambda Integrated FacilityPredicted Bandwidth for Scheduled Experiments, March 2005Predicted international Research &amp; Education Network bandwidth, to be made available for scheduled application and middleware research experiments by December 2004.</p></li><li><p>Huygens Space Probe lands on Titan - monitored by 17 telescopes in Australia, Japan, China and the USIn October 1997, the Cassini spacecraft left Earth to travel to SaturnOn Christmas day 2004, the Huygens probe separated from Cassini and on 14 January 2005 started its descent through the dense (methane, nitrogen) atmosphere of Titan (speculated to be similar to that of Earth billions of years ago)The signals sent back from Huygens to Cassini were monitored by 17 telescopes in Australia, China, Japan and the US to accurately position the probe to within a kilometre (Titan is ~1.5 billion kilometres from Earth)</p></li><li><p>Australian eVLBI data sent over high speed links to the NetherlandsThe data from two of the Australian telescopes were transferred to the Netherlands over high-speed links and were the first to be received by JIVEThe data was transferred at an average rate of 400Mbps (a rate that would fill a CD every 13 seconds!)The data from these two telescopes were reformatted and correlated within hours of the end of the landingThis early correlation allowed early calibration of the data processor at JIVE, ready for the data from other telescopes to be addedSignificant international collaborative effort</p></li><li><p>Global CollaborationThe data on IDE disks was flown from Parkes (The Dish) and Coonabarabran (Mopra) to Marsfield in Sydney (CSIRO Australia Telescope National Facility, Au)This data was transferred to AARNets UTS International GigaPoP using a dedicated GbE path provided by CeNTIE, one of Australias Advanced Network Program (ANP) initiativesBackhaul to the Southern Cross landing station in Sydney was provided on a 10Gbps circuit on AARNets fibre from UTS)Transit to Pacific Wave (US) was engineered on a path of the northern 10Gbps circuit of SXTransPORT, a joint initiative of Southern Cross Cable Networks (SCCN,NZ/BM) and AARNet</p></li><li><p>Global CollaborationAARNets 8812 Procket at Pacific Wave was connected to a CANARIE (CA) switch and a User Controlled LightPath (UCLP) set up at 1GbE to the Joint Institution for VLBI in Europe (JIVE, NL)The Physical path for the UCLP involved the use of CAnet4 (CA) from Pacific Wave to the ManLan (US) facility in New York; the Internet Educational Equal Access Foundations (IEEAF, US) trans-Atlantic capacity to the SURFnet, NL GigaPoP in Amsterdam; and one of six GbE paths from the SURFnet GigaPoP to the JIVE facility at DwingelooThe possibility of this was discussed after Guido Abens (SURFnet) participation in the Australian Middleware forum in mid-December and the whole arrangement, including concept, coordination, set-up, testing and the experiment itself was accomplished in a little over three weeks.</p></li><li><p>Those involvedAARNet, AUCANARIE/CAnet4, CACeNTIE, AUCSIRO Australia Telescope National Facility (ATNF), AUIEEAF, USJIVE, NLManLan, NY, USPacific Wave (north), USSouthern Cross Cable Networks, NZ/BMSURFnet, NL</p></li><li><p>Where next for e-astronomy? in Australia AARNet working with members of the Australian Astronomy community to take fibre/wavelengths all the way to the telescopes and working with our overseas colleagues to facilitate new joint e-astronomy initiatives</p></li><li><p>Overlay networks</p></li><li><p>Where next for e-astronomy?
