FEDERICA project - An initiative using GÉANT Plus circuits to implement an experimental, scalable infrastructure on which new internet technology and protocols can be trialled, providing information for development of next generation networks.
EMSA CLEANSEANET Service - the European Maritime Safety Agency will use GÉANT to distribute satellite images for the detection and monitoring of oil slicks.
GÉANT Network, Services and Research
The GÉANT project has activities dedicated to operating and developing the network, pursuing research into the best networking technologies, and delivers connectivity and application services over the GÉANT Service Area. Two services in particular will be featured:
Bandwidth on Demand 
perfSONAR network monitoring tool
  GÉANT Green Team Workshop

The GÉANT Green Team will be exploring “green” networking technologies, tools and applications through a workshop.  It will showcase how networks can have beneficial synergies with green technologies. GÉANT Green Team members are from four European GÉANT project partner networks: HEAnet, PSNC, and NORDUnet.
Using a mix of onsite and VC presentations, the 90-minute workshop will examine two aspects of green networking:

  • How networks can measure and understand their carbon footprint
  • How networking technology can mitigate carbon emissions amongst the research and education community.
