By: Nabeela KhatakTeams of scientists from research organizations around the world competed recently in Phoenix to see who could move the most scientific data across networks in the fourth annual High-Performance Bandwidth Challenge, held in conjunction with SC2003, the international conference on high-performance computing and networking. This year's winners:Read Full Article...

By: Ahmar AbbasCalient Networks today announced that it is offering its photonic technology, used in its core DiamondWave product, as a subsystem for customized applications. Grid computing is one of the key ones. Calient has some experience in grid arena - it's equipment is being used in the Optiputer project and will be deployed at the Starlight Peering point.

I'll be conducting a Birds of a Feathers (BOF) session on grid computing and its implications for telecommunications vendors and service providers at this year's Next Generation Networking 2003 conference. I also ran the BOF at NGN 2002 and thought it was pretty successful. Despite being scheduled at the same time as the conference reception, the BOF attracted over 30 people from 10 different countries. Rick Thompson of PointEast Research LLC who participated in the BOF wrote this summary for Light Reading Magazine.
Just got confirmation on the date and time for the BOF, so mark your calendars:
Conference: Next Generation Networks 2003
Location: Boston, MA
Title: Can Grid Computing Save Telecom?
Date: November 5, 2003
Time: 4:45pm - 5:45pm

By: Ahmar AbbasThe United States Department of Defense has announced that it will transition all its networks to IPv6 by 2008. Still a ways away isn't it? Not really. Starting October 1, 2003 all DoD networking purchases will consider evolution to IPv6 as a key decision criteria. Since the government is one of the key technology spender these days, I expect that vendors will not hesitate to jump on the IPv6 bandwagon now. And with the proliferation of no PC devices IP devices (cameras, sensors, PDA, cell phones etc) the timing is probably right.
Many of the research networks involved in grid computing are already using IPv6 - Ian Foster is even keynoting the upcoming North American IPv6 conference.

By: Ahmar AbbasTwo recent announcement cover research activities focussed on speeding up the Net. The first one talks about NTT technology that makes transmission speeds 10 times faster than today. (Is that OC-768 x 10 = 400 Gbps???). The second story talks about introducing an updated TCP protocol called Fast TCP to improve throughput on existing links. The Fast TCP protocol is interesting since it leverages most of the existing Internet infrastructure. Increased throughput on the Net could mean that the rigid communication to computation ratio parameters could be relaxed bringing fore a whole new set of applications that could be deployed on grids.Read Full Article...
