Operating Innovative Networks Workshop Series

OIN Workshop

The Operating Innovative Networks (OIN) workshop series is designed to equip university and laboratory network engineers with the knowledge and training needed to build next-gen campus networks that are optimized for data-intensive science. 

Presented by experts from the Department of Energy’s ESnet, Indiana University and Internet2, the workshop series focuses on Science DMZ network architectures, perfSONAR performance measurement software, Data Transfer Nodes, and emerging Software Defined Networking techniques. Combined, these technologies are proven to support high-performance, big data science applications, including high-volume bulk data transfer, remote experiment control, and data visualization. 

The workshops consist of two days of presentation material, along with hands-on exercises designed to encourage immediate adoption of these technologies. By the end of the event, attendees will have better understandings of the requirements for supporting scientific use of the network, and tools and strategies that can be used to mitigate problems users may encounter.
