The Internet Global Summit - A Net Odyssey - Mobility and the Internet

The 11th Annual Internet Society Conference
5-8 June 2001 - Stockholmsmässan - Stockholm, Sweden

Technology Summit: Demonstration Thread

Chairperson: David Billard, University of Geneva,

The presentations or panels of the four other threads of the Technology Summit are essential to convey the concepts at work, the visions of those evolving the Internet. But there is no other place than in the Demonstration room for you to be able to touch, really touch, the technology through the future hardware or applications that are beeing developped in laboratories and may be off--the-shelf in a few years. It is an unique opportunity to see those future appliances in a test environment .

Real deployment of IPv6 in Europe: the 6INIT project  
"The IPv6 INternet IniTiative (6INIT) project is an EU Fifth Framework funded project under the Information Society Technologies (IST) programme. It began on January 1st 2000 and runs for 18 months. The objective of the 6INIT project is to promote the introduction of IPv6 services and applications in Europe. The 6INIT project is providing guidelines on how to set up an operational platform providing end-users with native IPv6 access points and native IPv6 services. This European platform is composed of IPv6/IPv4 national clouds distributed in five different European countries. This session will present the lessons learned and the results obtained in the project. Moreover, there will be a number of demonstrations of network services and applications developed in the project and being implemented in a native IPv6 infrastructure."

Behind all theories: Effective network configuration for real cases
"A large mismatch seems to exist between the highly abstract world of network management systems and actual management of configuration data in real-world networks: - Current Network Management systems often contain an information model of great detail (e.g. SNMP MIBs) and are mostly used for visualizing and monitoring networks, but very little in the main configuration process of network elements like routers and associated services like DNS or Radius. - Configuration is usually done with script based systems, often built on widely known tools like RCS, PERL, LDAP, ssh etc. These systems usually do not have a detailed data model, offer lots of flexibility and easy adaptation but also tend to grow in a unstructured manner. We will analyze some of the reasons of this mismatch and demonstrate a solution that has been derived from the similar problem space existing in the management of web content."

Advanced Networking and the Arts: Innovations in Outreach, Collaboration, and Performance
The "killer application" for the arts may very well be "high fidelity". That is, the ability of the arts community to collaborate and communicate with digital audio and video without loss of nuance or meaning. Through this panel of experts, live demonstrations, and interaction with the audience we hope to share our experiences and perhaps initiate new collaborations across advanced research and education networks.

Transport optimisations for real-time IP over cellular links
Numerous hurdles are faced in merging the worlds of the Internet and cellular telephony. One major challenge lies in transporting IP efficiently over wireless cellular links. The demonstration aims to illustrate how traditional IP solutions fare poorly under this environment, specifically in the areas of header compression and security, and how Ericsson's proposals currently undergoing standardisation within the IETF forum, can be used to overcome this. The presentation consists of background information, followed by a live demonstration running customised software.

Cellular IPv6 Demonstrator
"Intra-domain mobility is an interesting topic in current research. Implementations for IPv4 have been developed recently, however IPv6 research and implementations are very recent. We have developed Cellular IPv6 to provide mobility within a domain while interoperating with Mobile IPv6. CIPv6 takes advantage of IPv6 features to simplify and streamline the protocol. In this demonstration we show CIPv6 in action, explain functionality, code workings and new optimization features."

IPv6 in Cellular networks
This demo session will show how the IPv6 protocol can be introduced to the user equipment and how mobile users can access legacy IPv4 services in the Internet by using different migration tools. It will also show how an end-user can make use of different access technologies, while established connections are maintained, as well as how the network assures that high priority data (e.g. voice) is routed through the access network with no latency as the traffic load of non-prioritised data (e.g. web-browsing) increases.
