To provide a technology update on optical networking and next generation internet operating system 

Session Plan:
8.30AM - 12Noon  Cisco Optical Technology Update
This tutorial discusses a number of network technologies including Dense Wave Division Multiplexing, Circuit Switching infrastructures
that enable this multi-tiered model to be implement layer 1, layer 2 services. A number of research networks that are in production that
have adopted these architectures are discussed in detail including the National Lambda Rail, CENIC and TWAREN backbones.

Speaker 1: Charles Smith (chas@cisco.com), Senior Consulting Engineer,  Academic Research and Technologies Initiative
Abstract: A number of Regional & National Research Networks are migrating to support  a layered logical topology to offer
               connectivity that facilitates both communities  & peer-to-peer relationships between researchers and laboratories.

Speaker 2: Olivier Jerphagnon, Product Marketing Manager, Calient Networks
Abstract: The talk will include review advances in Photonic Switching and GMPLS Control  plane technologies. Examples of IP/Optical network

Access Grid Tutorial

Time: 2005.1.24 (mon)
Place: Bangkoknoi Room
(Room E)

(origional proposal)

Putchong Uthayopas
To get participants to build their own Access Grid . This tutorial will cover the many aspects of creating and operating an Access Grid node. The tutorial begins with an overview, Access Grid philosophy, background material, hardware and software choices and room considerations. The tutorial covers how to operate the AG, including how to manage sound and video for an optimal experience, how to use the software included with the AG and how to manage network problems.
Session Plan:
Putchong Uthayopas : session chairs, Access Grid

40 LAN ports around the table with power,
2 servers and audio/video equipments
participants should prepare a web camera and speaker phone


Tutorial: Secure real-time
audio/video communication - H.350, encryption, Gatekeeper/Proxy - using
H.323 (...and a bit SIP)

Time: 2005.1.24 (mon)
Place: Banglampoo Room
(Room D)

(origional proposal)

<more detail can be found at Reference hompage>

Kewin Stoeckigt (MPG), Egon Verharen (SURFnet)  
The objectives of this workshop are to introduce the technique of H.323 for audio- and videoconferencing. A general introduction as well as information about current issues, e.g. Firewalls, H.235, etc., will also be introduced and explained. This full day event is separated into 4 sessions, whereas the first session will be a theoretical introduction to H.323, videoconferencing, Global Dialing Scheme (GDS), ViDe, etc. The second and the third session are separated into a theoretical and a practical part. The theoretical part will introduced H.350 Directory Services and after that, a H.350 Directory Service will be installed (OpenLDAP based) (Session 2). In session 3, GnuGK with it functionality is introduced and it will be explained, how this system can help you to bypass a firewall. Furthermore 2 security concepts will be demonstrated. In the practical part of this session, GnuGK is installed, with a connection to the H.350 Directory service, installed in the earlier practical session. The fourth session will then show the future of H.323 and SIP. In the second part, an introduction of data collaboration standards should sum up the workshop. In general we would like to see, that every one can take their own Gatekeeper/Proxy incl. H.350 Directory Service home, either on a CD-Rom or already installed on a system.

Bandwidth Optimization TechniquesTutorial

Time: 2005.1.24 (mon)
Place: Bangkoknoi Room
(Room E)

(origional proposal)

Dr. Gihan Dias
Most of Asian countries suffer the problem of limited bandwidth. Simple but unaffordably expensive solution is to increase the bandwidth to satisfy the demand. At the same time we have realized that even given a bandwidth is not fully utilized. Therefore we targeted here to explain some of techniques to optimize the usage of bandwidth in such links. Currently we do research on this area and some of them are practically used in Sri Lankan University Network (LEARN - Lanka Educational And Research Network)

Session Plan:
Dr. Gihan Dias: Session chair
Mr. Chamara Disanayake: User Initiated Bandwidth Allocation
Ms. Pradeepa Gurusinghe: On Fly Data Compression
Mr. Sumith Gamage: Inter-Proxy Bandwidth Negotiation  


Tutorial: Build and understand a SIP Proxy Server

Time: 2005.1.25 (tue)
Place: Bangkoknoi Room
(Room E)

(origional proposal)



Stephen Kingham and Quincy Wu
To get participants to build their own SIP VoIP servers with GPL licensed software SER <http://www.iptel.org/ser/>. Each participant will bring a Linux/FreeBSD PC to this hands-on workshop and install necessary software packages to support them making VoIP calls between participants in the workshop. After the SIP peering for VoIP is established in this workshop, they would take those servers home and the VoIP peering would continue to work and hopefully become part of the Internet2 SIP.edu <http://voip.internet2.edu/SIP.edu/> initiative.

Session Plan:
Initial candidates are Andrew Rutherford - SIP Theory, IAGU
Quincy Wu - SER
Stephen Kingham - UAs  

Room to be a horse shoe arrangement.
Will need 40 LAN ports around the table with power.
We will be bringing 20 IP Telephones and there might be 10 Unix servers provided by delegates.

The SIP Tutorial, including the outline and presentation material as it stands right now is available here:
