SCHEDULE: NOV 12-18, 2011

When viewing the Technical Program schedule, on the far righthand side is a column labeled "PLANNER." Use this planner to build your own schedule. Once you select an event and want to add it to your personal schedule, just click on the calendar icon of your choice (outlook calendar, ical calendar or google calendar) and that event will be stored there. As you select events in this manner, you will have your own schedule to guide you through the week.

You can also create your personal schedule on the SC11 app (Boopsie) on your smartphone. Simply select a session you want to attend and "add" it to your plan. Continue in this manner until you have created your own personal schedule. All your events will appear under "My Event Planner" on your smartphone.

Terabit Networks: Opportunity and Challenges in Extreme-Scale Science and Massive Data Movement

SESSION: Terabit Networks: Opportunity and Challenges in Extreme-Scale Science and Massive Data Movement

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 12:15PM - 1:15PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Thomas Ndousse, Steve Cotter


The volume of data generated by Exascale computing, complex scientific instruments, and commercial internet activities in the next decade will far exceed the level that can be handled efficiently by today’s best IP networks. The traditional incremental improvement approach may not be adequate to address the massive data movement needs. Terabits networks that leverage the emerging 100GigE technology offer a path forward for addressing the anticipated data movement needs. However, exploiting 100 GigE technologies will be challenging. It will involve developing fundamentally new networks protocols and scaling ones. Radically new approaches such as hybrid traffic engineering schemes that combine packets and circuit switching; new transport protocols that effectively deliver multi-gigabits to science applications; fundamentally new schemes for cross multi-layer protection; robust standards to facilitate multi-layers/ multi-domain and inter-operability of multi-vendor networking; and innovative disk-to-network I/O sub-systems. Meeting these challenges will require effective collaboration between network researchers, R&E networks, and vendors.
