8A - The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: GÉANT2 Exposed
"The good, the bad and the ugly": not so much a description of our world-worn panelists, but a "round table" session on GÉANT2 that promises an open, thought-provoking and entertaining discussion about the successes and (dare we say it) shortcomings of GÉANT2.
Comprising techies, bean counters and human beings, our panelists take a cool, hard look at whether GÉANT2 has managed to deliver the pan-European, multi-domain networking services it intended. They examine what has helped or hindered progress towards this goal; whether GÉANT2 can be accused of pursuing technology at the expense of user needs and if it is really possible to deliver a uniform service across a multi-country environment. And what exactly does this all mean for GÉANT2’s successor?
