network matters have been divided into two main parts, the network
technology and the application technology. Today there are a number
of challenges within the infraservices area where these two parts
meet. In addition to raw bandwith a number of network components,
most traditionally regarded as applications, are necessary for
building advanced network applications.Examples of these are proxies,
directory services, multicast, Quality of Services and multimedia
services. Infraservices also ecompasses traditional network services
and security issues. Nordunet2 will encourage and seek to support
worthy projects within these areas.
In many of
the potential projects under Nordunet2 charters there is a need
for a general underlying technology which covers the use of adequate
capacity networking. Therefore Nordunet2 will seek to survey the
status and needs of the involved parties (universities etc). It
is essential that each applicant within the other areas is aware
of the infrastructural needs their respective solutions have,
and that they have singeled this out in a separate discussion
in the application/description.
would like to discourage the use of proprietary solutions.
