Staff to Share Networking Expertise and Accomplishments at Tech Exchange Conference
Berkeley Lab staff from ESnet, NERSC and the IT Division will be among the presenters at the 2014 Technology Exchange, a leading technical event in the global research and education networking community. The annual meeting is co-organized by ESnet and Internet2. The conference will be held Oct. 27-30 in Indianapolis.
Among the topics to be addressed by Berkeley Lab staff are ESnet’s recently announced 100 gigabits-per-second connections to Europe, the newest release of the perSONAR network measurement software library, Science DMZs and cybersecurity.
The annual meeting brings together a wide range of technical experts to address the challenges facing the research and education networking community as it supports data-intensive research. The conference will be hosted this year by Indiana University.
According to the conference website, the technical challenges facing organizations today are not confined to the network alone and require the convergence of networking, computing, storage and other, emerging technologies. The Technology Exchange brings together the community’s technology visionaries, including the most inventive chief technologists, scientists, engineers, architects, operators and students in the world, to address these demands.
