Glimpse Tomorrow's Internet at NetWorld+Interop Today

Atlanta, Georgia--September 26, 2000--Musicians and doctors from across the
United States will use Internet2(R) networks to demonstrate advanced
applications at the NetWorld+Interop iLabs on the Georgia World Congress
Center show floor this week.

Doctors from Ohio State University will demonstrate surgical collaboration
capabilities between an operating room at Ohio State University Medical
Center and remote locations. High-performance networking enables sharing of
bi-directional full-screen video and audio streams, as well as vital sign
information such as heart rate and respiration rate. For more information,

Musicians from Oklahoma University, using MPEG-2 codecs provided by Litton
Network Access Systems, will demonstrate live music lessons over the
network. The better-than-VHS quality video and audio enabled by
high-performance networking allows the student and instructor to work
together on nuances of technique and sound in a way not possible over
today's Internet. For more information about the demonstrations, see:

Researchers at the University of Central Florida’s O.D.A. Lab (Optical
Diagnostic and Applications Lab) are using high-performance networking,
optical motion tracking and real-time, computer generated 3-D graphics to
develop shared 3-D visualizations of anatomic joint motions. Sharing
animations of joints, such as knees, over the network enables remote
training and teaching of medical experts, students and patients, For more
information, see:

Among the networks used in the demonstration is the nationwide Abilene
network, an advanced backbone network that supports the development and
deployment of the new applications being developed within the Internet2
community. Abilene connects regional network aggregation points, called
gigaPoPs, to support the work of Internet2 universities as they develop
advanced Internet applications. For more information about advanced
networks, see:
