Demonstrations

Machine Learning based Optical and QKD Network Monitoring

10.30 - 11.00 | Demonstration Area


Description

We demonstrate a fiber network monitoring system based on machine learning which can detect and diagnose fiber faults and hardware failures in an optical network. Our system also has the capability of monitoring the performance of QKD links.

Leveraging Virtualised Training Platforms During the Pandemic

12.45 - 13.15 | Demonstration Area


Description

The Network Startup Resource Center (NSRC) and the Research and Education Network for Uganda (RENU) will discuss the differences between in-person, fully remote and hybrid training while using the NSRC virtualized training environments. The most current platform will be demonstrated live with details provided. We'll discuss how these platforms have enhanced training on-the-ground as well as provide results and lessons learned by RENU as well as NSRC while working with local R&E partners in Africa and others around the globe.

Securing a network with blacklisting of malicious domain names and IPs

13.20 - 13.50 | Demonstration Area


Description

A system for filtering malicious sites with public blacklists of domains and IP addresses, within an open source software environment.

Presenter

  • Fabio Pedretti (N/A)

eduTURN - Community owned and Managed STUN/TURN Pilot Service

15.30 - 16.00 | Demonstration Area


Description

eduTURN is a distributed, federated joint effort to build STUN/TURN infrastructure for ICE (Interactive Connectivity Establishment) agents. It’s a distributed service hosted by eight NRNENs throughout Europe, offered to other NRENs as a pilot service. It comes with several authentication mechanisms as well as software package for on-premises installations.

The demonstration will showcase how to start using eduTURN, explain the concept of distributed TURN and present how to create credentials, use API inside the website and how it works inside eduMEET.

Data Mobility Exhibition

10.30 - 11.00 | Demonstration Area


Description

Data mobility is a critical component of the process of science. Being able to predictably and efficiently move scientific data between experimental source, processing facilities, long term storage, and collaborators is a common use case that transcends the boundaries of research disciplines. This demo transfers reference data sets from well tuned Data Transfer Nodes (DTNs) to existing campus CI components. Participants will upload, download, measure, and potentially improve their scientific data movement capabilities as well as review previous tests.

National platform for virtual education and analytics in Ecuador - ELSA

12.45 - 13.15 | Demonstration Area


Description

ELSA aims to provide a high-performance e-learning platform guided by a methodology based on active learning and assisted by learning analytics processes, which allows improving the virtual educational process of higher education institutions in Ecuador. The platform runs on CEDIA's distributed computing infrastructure, which is based on hyper-convergence technology and has immediate response systems for failures and contingency sites. The platform has specialized data analysis components that collect data on technological, pedagogical, and communicative skills, which allows assertive decision-making at different levels. ELSA support approximately 700 thousand students enrolled during the pandemic period and is one of the main pillars in the digital transformation process of Ecuadorian universities.

Security Card Game

13.20 - 13.50 | Demonstration Area


Description

The Security Card Game has been developed by GN4-3 WP8 to raise awareness for IT Security and teach players (e.g., employees) on these matters. In the first part of the Security Card Game, we will explain the background and rules of the game. The second part will feature a live demo of the game and explain the benefits and lessons to learn from playing the game and our intentions.

Presenters

  • Szymon Kupiński (PSNC)
  • Piotr Pawałowski (PSNC)

PosEmo and eduMEET - case study of non-verbal communication booster in the web-conferencing world

15.30 - 16.00 | Demonstration Area


Description

It is much harder to track viewers' attention and reactions when people are just thumbnails on a computer screen. Online tracking of people's emotions and interests is now possible using the PosEmo.
The demonstration, aimed at both general and technical audiences, will showcase functional aspects of eduMEET and PosEmo integration. This includes practical use cases, displayed in real-time on the screen, as well as possible audience interaction. The focus will also be on eduMEET current status and roadmap.

EveryWAN: an open source solution to deploy advanced SD-WAN services

10.30 - 11.00 | Demonstration Area


Description

EveryWAN is our open source SD-WAN solution aimed at deploying an SD-WAN infrastructure over the GÉANT network. It provides VPN services, with performance monitoring capabilities. We use IPv6 and SRv6 (Segment Routing IPv6) as dataplane technologies. SRv6 is supported in the Linux kernel, on which our edge devices are based. We give a demonstration of how a user can connect to the controller's GUI to configure edge devices and end-to-end slices and to display performance monitoring data.

Integrating CILogon, COmanage and GA4GH Passports for life science AAI

12.45 - 13.15 | Demonstration Area


Description

This demonstration is a companion to the presentation titled: "Propelling Australia’s Digital Life Science Research with Collaborative Research Infrastructure". We will demonstrate our prototype that connects Australian genomics researchers to sensitive data sets using federated identity (via the AAF) and community authorization policies (managed by Australian BioCommons) and standards (i.e., eduGAIN and GA4GHPassports). This prototype enables token-based, time-limited access to specific records in a data set while preventing access to data outside the scope of the research activity.

XR Optics - a revolutionary technology

13.20 - 13.50 | Demonstration Area


Description

XR optics is a revolutionary technology purpose-built to break the inherent limitations of traditional point-to-point optical transmission solutions. XR optics enhances deployment flexibility as the same coherent pluggable can be software-configured to operate in point-to-point or point-to-multipoint configurations.
Introduce the revolutionary concept of coherent subcarrier aggregation, one that will redefine the cost structure of next-generation transport networks. XR optics addresses a fundamental deficiency in optical communications technology and is expected to have a significant impact on any network that implements an aggregation function.

ACME (Automated Certificate Management)

15.30 - 16.00 | Demonstration Area


Description

ACME is a mechanism for automating certificate management on servers.
This demo displays an ACME implementation with Puppet (with an eye to other possibilities), with Redis, Hashicorp Vault, and with in-house-built components. I'll show you how to visualize the status of your certificates in a web browser and how to self-provision a certificate and deploy it through the API of Puppet.
