Description

The Global Research and Education Network (GREN) Map will provide a dynamic, real-time visualization of the value and reach of the GREN, providing not only a visualization of its topology, but also a vital marketing and external relations tool showing the value and reach of the GREN at both a national and institutional level.

The demo will highlight and display:
1. the unique, distributed approach taken in both the development of the GREN Map and its implementation architecture, with contributions from CANARIE, RNP, and GÉANT;
2. the pilot implementation of the GREN map, featuring data from the Canadian NREN, RNP, GÉANT, and contributions from early international adopters; and
3. the current status of GREN Map and next steps.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure - Provisioning of IaaS/PaaS services for research

21/06 11.40 - 12.00 CEST


Description

With the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), you can provision highly available compute instances on bare metal servers without a hypervisor, ensuring full control plane and network isolation, performance guarantees, and repeatability of your experiments. You can leverage the same cloud-optimized hardware, firmware, software stack, and networking infrastructure for your virtual machine instances and databases. With the Oracle Data Science Cloud platform, you can leverage Jupyter Notebooks and other code-first environments for your data driven research. Find out more about our compute shapes (HPC, GPU, etc.), storage options (block volumes, object store, file storage) and network services (FastConnect, DNS, etc.) and view a quick demo on how to launch cloud services via the OCI web interface.

Secure Key Management for Multi-vendor Interoperable Quantum Key Distribution Network

22/06 11.40 - 12.00 CEST


Description

We demonstrate a practical key management scheme for a quantum key distribution network (QKDN) where QKD devices from different vendors are interoperated by a standard key interface. Our scheme is entirely based on a standard model and can be easily integrated into existing telecommunication networks.

GÉANT WiFiMon Service Demo

22/06 11.40 - 12.00 CEST


Description

WiFiMon is a Wi-Fi network monitoring and performance verification system and a new GÉANT service. It is capable of detecting performance issues, measuring and visualising throughput as well as providing additional information about Wi-Fi setup, e.g. signal strength and link quality.

This demo will describe the WiFiMon components, the metrics collected from monitored networks and the capabilities WiFiMon provides in eduroam-enabled networks by correlating measurements with the available RADIUS and DHCP logs. The WiFiMon team will demonstrate the WiFiMon
automated installation procedure, providing additional details regarding the configuration steps, as well as introduce the audience to the WiFiMon UI.

eduMEET - Easy and affordable VC for NRENs

22/06 11.40 - 12.00 CEST


Description

eduMEET is an open source video conferencing system based upon the webRTC API framework that allows video conferencing capabilities to supported from within a web browser, thus removing the need to install a specific application.

It was developed by the GN4-3 project for the R&E community and places particular emphasis on privacy and trustworthiness, which may be lacking in some commercial solutions.
eduMEET is delivered as software packages. It provides a free licence and low-cost means for organisations themselves to establish a web-conferencing service and tailor it to their needs.

During the demo functional features of eduMEET will be presented.

NMaaS in a nutshell

23/06 11.40 - 12.00 CEST


Description

NMaaS is a service developed and maintained by the GÉANT Project. NMaaS is offered to all members of the GÉANT community including NRENs, end Institutions, research projects and individuals with the indent to ease local networking monitoring and management by moving the NMS installation to a secure NMaaS cloud. NMaaS supports on-demand deployment of multiple applications including Prometheus, Grafana, WiFiMon, perfSONAR and many other.
Demo session will cover a brief introduction to the Network Management as a Service and a live walkthrough of the process of deploying and accessing new application instance using the NMaaS Portal available at https://nmaas.eu.

Experiments in Federation Sustainability

23/06 11.40 - 12.00 CEST


Description

Higher education revenue has declined sharply in the wake of COVID-19. Identifying new revenue streams has become more important to underpin federation sustainability.

This joint demonstration by Jisc, and AAF will show two activities aimed at diversifying income sources to help contain costs for core R&E customers.

Demo 1: Monetising the Central Discovery Service demonstrates Jisc's experiments in monitising traffic to the Central Discovery Service.

Demo 2: Commercial Verification Services shows how Australia and the UK have unlocked value from attribute data following successful implementations of the privacy-preserving VerifID platform.

We will also highlight several unexpected non-financial benefits.

A systems thinking approach to value-added services management in NRENs

23/06 11.40 - 12.00 CEST


Description

This demonstration will detail the research conducted towards a PhD study where a causal diagram was developed for use as a knowledge-sharing and decision-making tool for NREN value-added services adoption. Content includes background, demonstration of the model and how it was refined and validated.

The research takes a constructivist paradigm approach to modelling factors that affect the adoption of value-added NREN services, using systems thinking and design science research methods. The model was developed, refined and validated from information gathered through a review of literature, interviews and surveys with international experts and using the researcher’s performative judgement, as a practitioner.

Decentralized Collaborative Learning Networks

24/06 11.40 - 12.00 CEST


Description

Decentralized Collaborative Learning Networks provide the perfect infrastructure for biomedical scenarios where we wish to use advanced data analysis based on AI and ML techniques on patients’ private and sensitive data. Such datasets are common in hospitals, clinics and research institutions connected by NRENs.
It is possible to develop algorithms, and train AI models to identify, with high precision, rare events in the high throughput imaging data without the actual sharing of the datasets.
Various aspects will be demonstrated, in particular how NRENs can benefit and offer new services based on blockchain technologies to deal with security and privacy challenges.

GÉANT P4 Lab

24/06 11.40 - 12.00 CEST


Description

RARE (Router for Academia, Research & Education) is an innovative fully documented and programmable open source high capacity line-rate router developed by a team within the GÉANT GN4-3 project.
To enable validation of the platform the RARE team has designed a distributed laboratory which was initially spread over four GÉANT PoPs in Europe and has since been extended to other European NRENs and universities, and to both North and South America. This P4 Lab, with a RARE router at each PoP, allows RARE to be tested but also the evaluation of novel systems based on Programmable Dataplanes, in particular the P4 language.
This demo will showcase the capabilities of the P4 Lab in terms of reservation,operation, and use, focusing on the example of RARE.
The demo will also be an opportunity for NRENs or R&E organisations wishing to connect to the P4 Lab, using RARE or other platforms (such as NMaaS that is used to monitor and control RARE routers and the testbed), to speak to the developers and find out more about the process involved.
