Internet2: Advanced Network Applications and Technologies Tibor Gyires School of Information Technology Illinois State University [email protected] What is Internet2? Types of application Example applications List of projects by discipline References. 1. Internet2.
Internet2 is a not-for-profit consortium, led by over 200 US universities, developing and deploying advanced network applications and technology, accelerating the creation of tomorrow's Internet.
Facilitate and coordinate the development, deployment, operation, and technology transfer of advanced, network-based applications and network services to further US leadership in research and higher education and accelerate the availability of new services and applications on the Internet.
Internet2 applications require enhanced networking functionality—such as high bandwidth, low latency (delay) and jitter, and multicast—not available on our commercial Internet connections.

A specialist in Boston could give advice to a doctor in rural areas for on-site medical care, or even guide that doctor during a surgery. A medical student could watch a rare procedure that would otherwise be unavailable. http://www.cnn.com/2000/HEALTH/10/02/inet2.demo.story/index.html
In the case of medical applications, such as tele-radiology and urgent diagnostics, the availability of such technologies in the places that are physically inaccessible to specialists could potentially save the lives. Off-shore ships and oil rigs are good examples of such environments.
The participants in this session were not only able to see each other in 3D but they were also able to engage in collaborative work, and take part in a design process (a simple example of interior office design)
Scanning-probe microscopes (SPMs) allow the investigation and manipulation of surfaces down to the atomic scale. The nano Manipulator (nM) system provides an improved, natural interface to SPMs, including Scanning Tunneling Microscopes and Atomic Force Microscopes. The nM couples the microscope to a virtual-reality interface that gives the scientist virtual telepresence on the surface, scaled by a factor of about a million to one.
A a suite of hardware and software that supports multiple group-to-group communications via high-speed networking.
Deploy measuring tools to measure and better understand the characteristics of the traffic generated by I2 applications.
The goal is to evaluate and measure the performance of various QoS solutions through active participation of the I2 Application QoS Working Group and other I2 partners.
The research will focus on the security services that can be used on campuses.
