Principles Focus on problems where We have a unique incentive to solve The benefit to our community is clear and compelling Results are attainable in a reasonable timeframe QBone Initiative An interdomain testbed for differentiated services Goals:

Grow a snowball of interoperable DiffServ clouds Grow a community of participants Foster pre-standards interoperability Collaborate to solve problems and share experiences Initial participants have been identified and met in several cases QBone Structure QBone Interoperability Group (QIG) Actively building pre-production interdomain DiffServ infrastructure Works on nuts-and-bolts interoperability issues Specific phased demonstrations of interdomain QoS Participation staged to keep group focused QBone Solutions Group (QSG)

Broader discussion of engineering and deployment issues Includes teams that plan to join the QIG Focus on intradomain engineering issues Participation open to the Internet2 community I2 QoS Working Group Architectural guardians Nurture QIG and QSG Initial Participants Abilene CAnet*2 iCAIR (International Center for

Mechanism: Memoranda of Understanding Signed: CANARIE, Stichting SURF, NORDUnet, TERENA*, SingAREN, JAIRC, UKERNA-INFN/GARR-DFN-VereinRENATER International collaborations contd Network interconnection Interconnection at STAR TAP (CAnetII, SURFnet, NORDUnet, SingAREN underway) Second interconnection directly with Abilene (NY - NORDUnet, SURFnet) Specific project collaboration QBone (e.g. SURFnet an initial participant) middleware research/learning applications Next Steps

Continue to interconnect member desktops and servers at high speed Continue to support advanced applications development focus on multi-campus implementations Adopt, develop and implement QoS end-to-end middleware end-to-end new business models
