example(s) -- gigaport
is a project focussing on the development and use
of advanced and innovative Internet technology.
The project, as can be read on the website,
focuses on research on next-generation networks and the implementation of a next-generation network for the research community.
Topics for research include:
- optical network technologies - models for network architecture, optical network components and light path provisioning.
- high performance routing and switching - new routing technologies and transport protocols, with a focus on scalability and stability robustness when using data-intensive applications with a high bandwidth demand.
- management and monitoring - incident response in hybrid networks (IP and optical combined) and technologies for network performance monitoring, measuring and reporting.
- grids and access - models, interfaces and protocols for user access to network and grid facilities.
- test methodology - effective testing methods and designing tests for new technologies and network components.
As one of the contributions, internationally,
the development of optical technology is claimed,
in particular lambda networking, networking on a specific
Locally, the projects has contributed to the introduction
of fibre-optic networks in some major cities in the Netherlands.
