ESnet, Berkeley Lab to Host Feb. 27-28 Workshop on Operating Innovative Networks

The next installment of the Operating Innovative Networks (OIN) workshop series will be held Feb. 27-28 at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, drawing 50 university and laboratory network engineers from as far away as New Jersey, Texas, Illinois and Colorado. The workshop is co-hosted by ESnet, Berkeley Lab and CENIC, the Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California. The program is designed to give attendees the knowledge and training needed to build next-generation campus networks that are optimized for data-intensive science. 

 Presented by experts from the Department of Energy’s ESnet, Indiana University and Internet2, the workshop series will focus on Science DMZnetwork architectures, perfSONAR performance measurement software, data transfer nodes and emerging software defined networking techniques. Combined, these technologies are proven to support high-performance, big data science applications, including high-volume bulk data transfer, remote experiment control, and data visualization. The workshops will consist of two days of presentation material, along with hands-on sessions to encourage immediate familiarity with these technologies.

 The Berkeley workshop is the fourth in the series and future sessions are planned in Atlanta (March), Boston (May) and Oregon (July). Read more at:
