The Architecture and Operations Advisory Council (AOAC) met on November 9. Internet2 staff reported that additional segments have been added to the Internet2 100G backbone as part of the network build project as well as in support of SC11. In addition, five NDDI nodes have been built as part of the Open Science, Scholarship and Services Exchange to be showcased at SC11. After excellent discussions held during the Internet2 Fall Member Meeting, the AOAC will be constituting two subcommittees to continue the discussions regarding use of the network. The first subcommittee is charged with determining what the Internet2 community needs to do to take advantage of the 100G capabilities of the network and what to do to substantiate the innovation platform that is being created with the network. The other subcommittee is charged with reviewing the principles and goals of use of the network leading to an overall, fresh, clean slate perspective on fees.
