At SC07, Internet2 and several partners and collaborators demonstrated for the first time interoperability of its Dynamic Circuit Network with multiple regional and international networks as well as an equipment provider.

The Internet2 demonstrations showcased interoperability with ESnet, GÉANT2 in Europe, the Great Plains Network, GRNET in Greece, HEAnet in Ireland, Merit Network, Northern Crossroads, Nortel Test Network based in Ottawa, Canada, the PIONIER network in Poland, and the Phosphorus testbed at the University of Amsterdam via SURFnet’s NetherLight. This interoperability was based on multiple, independent implementations of the Inter-Domain Controller protocol. Demonstrations included:

  • High-definition streaming video from HEAnet to the Internet2 SC07 booth
  • File transfers from GRNET and PIONIER to the Internet2 SC07 booth
  • LHC data transfers from Fermilab to University of Nebraska-Lincoln
  • CineGrid 4K video between University of Amsterdam and the Dutch Pavilion at SC07
  • High-definition streaming video between Nortel’s office in Ottawa, Canada and the Internet2 SC07 booth
