APAN 41 Manila - Day 4

27 January 2016

Today I attended the Network Engineering Workshop. The abstracts and slides of the talks are here. This workshop is by far the most organized which started and finished on time.

Majority of the talks described their home institution's current network infrastructure as well as their future plans. They are slowly moving to 100Gbps connections( the term is Long Fat Networks or LFNs) from 10Gbps.

There were also some presentations on protocol modifications (TCP in particular) in order to support 10/100 Gbps transfer over long distances across the Pacific Ocean.
