Register now for June 21-22 Virtual Workshop on Innovative Networking

ESnet, Indiana University, and Internet2 are hosting a virtual version of the next Operating Innovative Networks (OIN) workshop on Wednesday and Thursday, June 21-22. This completely online event offers hands-on training in:

  • Software Defined Networking
  • Science DMZs
  • Data Transfer Nodes
  • perfSONAR (network measurement)
  • Science Engagement

There is no registration fee, but registration is required. Connection information will be shared with registered attendees. Go here to register.

The series is designed to help lab and campus network engineers deploy next-gen research networks that can effectively support data-intensive science. Sessions will be available throughout the day on the topics typically presented in an in-person workshop, but will be modified for the virtual audience. Due to time zone considerations, the presentations will run between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. EDT over the two days, and will also be recorded for future use.

The two-day workshop will present material for building and deploying Science DMZs, Software Defined Networks, perfSONAR, Data Transfer Nodes, and Science Engagement. The content will be particularly useful for NSF Campus Cyberinfrastructure awardees that are being funded to upgrade their networks with these technologies, or those looking to prepare for the next CC* solicitation. By the end of the event, attendees will have a better understanding of the requirements for supporting scientific use of the network, architectural strategies that can simplify these interactions, and knowledge of tools that can mitigate problems users may encounter.

Again, this workshop will be completely online, but we are asking participants to register so we can share information about connectivity and materials.
