Internet2 Spring 2011 Member Meeting Will Focus on the Future of the Internet and National Advanced Broadband Delivery

Meeting To Also Showcase World’s Fastest Networking Equipment That Will Comprise New Internet2 Network; Many Sessions Netcast for Worldwide Viewing

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – April 18, 2011 – The world’s fastest networking equipment, the state of the Internet and IPv6, and a new national infrastructure that supports recommendations of the FCC’s National Broadband Plan will be in focus as the Internet2 community convenes beginning today, April 18, through April 20, 2011 in Arlington, Virginia for its annual Spring Member Meeting. The meeting will serve up keynotes, formal track sessions, and side meetings that address networking issues critical to researchers, educators, public service organizations, industry, and students.

The meeting’s keynote addresses include FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn speaking about the FCC’s role in supporting U.S. broadband penetration that will enable new economic opportunities and improved American competitiveness, and Internet Society (ISOC) Chief Internet Technology Officer, Leslie Daigle, will highlight the pivotal challenge defining the Internet's future: its ability to evolve and grow with a focus on the bellwether issue of deploying the next generation of Internet protocol, IPv6.

Additionally, the meeting will include nearly 60 Track sessions – of which many can be viewed online via netcast, and will cover topic areas focused on Internet2’s new “Path Forward” articulated by CEO, Dave Lambert, including: Cloud Services, Identity Management Federations and Middleware Applications, Advanced Network and Network services leadership, The U.S. Unified Community Anchor Network (U.S. UCAN), National/Regional network organizations collaboration, Global reach and leadership, Research community development and engagement, and Industry partner collaboration critical to the delivery of Internet2’s services.

With partners Juniper Networks, Ciena® Corporation and Indiana University (IU), the meeting will also showcase a display of a new Internet2 network node representing the nodes that will be strategically deployed across the nation as part of the Internet2 Network upgrade. The WorldView application developed by the IU Global Research Network Operations Center (GlobalNOC), which provides a real-time, 3D map view of national network connections will accompany the demonstration.

In addition to the plenary and track sessions, over 80 side meetings are planned. Working, special interest and birds-of-a-feather group sessions with topics ranging from multicasting, to high energy and nuclear physics, to teaching and learning will give delegates important opportunities to interact. The chance to collaborate face-to-face, learn from other members and advance community projects has always been one of the Member Meeting's major draws.
