The 6NET project is organising a workshop co-located with the joint TERENA Networking Conference. This will be an open event that anyone may attend. Participants of the conference may attend the workshop as part of their conference registration and need not register separately.

6NET is a large project in the Information Society Technologies programme of the European Union that is deploying a native IPv6 network at Gigabit speeds. It is also developing advanced services and applications that will run on this infrastructure.

The workshop will discuss various aspects of IPv6 deployment and how to make the transition from legacy networks. It will focus on the current state of the technology, with particular reference to multicasting, security and mobility. In addition, it will consider the leading role that 6NET and related projects such as Euro6IX are playing in the development of the next generation of networks.

The 6NET programme is at: www.6net.org/events/workshop-2004/ and is also included in the conference programme.

For people not registered for TNC 2004, there will be a registration fee of € 30 for the workshop.

NRENs offer various services that mostly have emerged in an evolutionary and techno-driven development process. In the current, more stable (?)situation it has come time in many NRENs to try to better manage the service portfolios.

The following aspects will be tackled as well as sketches for future co-operation:

Portfolio management

  • service portfolio of each NREN
  • how customer satisfaction is checked

Life-cycle management

  • how new services are introduced
  • how the estination of the life span is done
  • how services are shut down

New product development

  • what the role of technical possibilities is, what the role of customer needs
  • what the mechanisms for decision making are
  • development project vs. new product launch
