SCinet Update November 13 – Conference Begins!

November 13th, 2010

scinet-help-deskToday is Saturday, November 13, and sessions for SC10 have begun. We’re in the home stretch to get SCinet installed. We’ve been working feverishly to get everything running before the start of the conference. In addition, the network demonstrations should all be live in time for the Exhibition Press Tour on Monday night from 6-7 pm.

I’ve included more photos to show you the network in progress. If you’re going to New Orleans and have any questions about SCinet, be sure to stop by our help desk.

All the SCinet DNOCs located throughout the show floor are now finished and ready to go.

SCinet has more than 100 volunteers working behind the scenes to bring up the world’s fastest network. Planning began more than a year ago and all of our hard work is about to pay off as we connect SC10 exhibitors and attendees to leading research and commercial networks around the world, including the Department of Energy’s ESnet, Internet2, National LambdaRail and LONI (Louisiana Optical Network Initiative).

I will blog again as the show gets rolling and provide updates on our demos in action.

See you soon!
