Medical WG day-2: 2007.1.25 (Thr) version 2.0

9:00-10:30 Session 1: Network update for medical activity
Chairperson: Colin Carati (Flinders University Hospital/Adelaide)
1. Network Update: APAN (Kitamura Y/NICT/Tokyo)

After APAN Singapore meeting, the big change happened at the circuit betweenJapan and Korea. These days,the medical activity is moving from the Mbps scale to the Gbps scale. Now, the the circuit between Japan and Korea is ready for this activity. In this presentation, the speaker will talk about this upgrade and some activities of APAN NOC.



2. Network Update: TEIN2 (Xing Li/CERNET/Beijing)


This presentation will report the operation status of the TEIN2 network, as well as the Academic Networks in China The open network management system and the application specific (DVTS as an example) measurement will also be introduced.



3. Network Update: University network in Indonesia (Basuki/ITB/Bandung)
ITB (http://www.itb.ac.id/ became a partner of the Research network community especially in networking with join on AIII (Asian Internet Interconnection Initiatives/http://www.ai3.net) in October 1996 following the establishment of its earth station and first earth station using Ku-Band in Indonesia. It was also during this time that the first National Research and Education Network (NREN) in the country, which eventually became the Indonesian Research, Education, and  Information Network (IREN), was being conceptualized. Following various undertakings with AIII, ITB became the partner of TEIN2 (Trans-Eurasia Information Network/http://www.tein2.net/). And in 2006, based on our experience with AI3, SOI-Asia, and TEIN, ITB together with University of Indonesia (UI), University of Gadjah Mada (UGM) and Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS), develop Indonesia Higher Education Network (INHERENT), the first IREN in Indonesia.
 Start on March 2006 , TEIN2 connectivity was released to Indonesia (Bandung, ITB) with 45 Mbps IP VPN between Singapore TEIN2 PoP and ITB using Fiber optics infrastructure. Using this connectivity (TEIN2 Network) on July 2006 , Indonesia has tried to use the DVTS to connect ITB and Kyushu Univ Japan. And on the DVTS technology using for video conference on APAN 22nd Meeting in Singapore and this is the first time Indonesia/ITB transmitted the DVTS to other countries.
            INHERENT by the end of January 2007 will be connected 82 universities in Indonesia from Banda Aceh to Jayapura (West Papua) using different technology. The INHERENT divided into three categories , advanced network , Medium Network and Basic Network. The Advanced network connected using fiber optic with STM-1 (155 Mbps) , the Medium Network connected using Fiber optics and Microwave link and the basic network connected using VSAT and C-Band Satellite. The Network Topology distributed especially for the 32 nodes as Backbone or local node and the star topology are using from the local node to other universities or other cities/town.
             ITB was able to undertake R&D in leading-edge technologies and became a pioneering R&D institution in advanced network technologies in the Indonesia. These included Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6); Multimedia over IP Applications such as videoconferencing, Voice over IP; Network Monitoring and Measurement Tools; and Access Grid Technology, among others.
And ITB as TEIN2 representative for Indonesia and as a part of INHERENT support and make collaboration with other universities in Indonesia and other R & D communities such as APAN.
4. Network Update: Academic network in India (Singh/ERNET/New Delhi)
ERNET is national Educational & Research Network which connects premier educational institutes and research institutes in the country. ERNET has Point of Presence in premier educational institutes across the country to serve the educational & research institutes across the country. More than 1000 institutes/universities have been connected by ERNET. Network of ERNET is judicious mix of terrestrial and satellite network. ERNET is running IPv6/IPv4 dual stack backbone.
ERNET is connected to Pan European Research Network GEANT. Through GEANT Internet2 and APAN are also reachable from ERNET.
ERNET has also set-up network for National Grid Computing Initiative -- GARUDA.
5. Network Update: Academic network in Vietnam (Binh/VNU/Hanoi)
6. Network Update in AARNET (Bruce Morgan/AARNET/Perth)
The third generation AARNet Network has enabled multigigabit connectivity throughout Australia and high capacity international links to the US, Asia and TEIN2. Medical practitioners and researchers are making use of this technology to enhance their work.
Speaker Biography: Bruce Morgan is Network Manager of AARNet (Australiafs Academic and Research Network) and is based in Perth, Australia

2. VPN network deployment for multi point remote medical applications.
14 Hiroshi Mano, Chief Technical Officer AlliedTelesis Holdings K.K.
Irie Hiroki, Sysetem Engineer Allied Telesis K.K.
The telemedicine over the Internet became a more practical phase by the broad band network infrastructure. In case of medical application over the public Internet infrastructure, security technologies for protecting the personal informations is one of important consideration issue. VPN is one of popular technology of security, but higher encipherment without loss of band width request high performance network equipment. We deployed multi point VPN over APAN with commercial-off-the-shelf network device, and successed to use high performance telemedicine applications such as digital video transfer over this VPN. In this section we explain about the detail structure of the VPN and case studies.
Key Words: VPN, Telemedicine, DVTS, Internet,
Speaker Biography:Hiroshi Mano is a chief technology officer of Allied Telesis Holding K.K., and Founder C.E.O. of Root Inc. He received Bachelor of Engineering (Electronics Engineering) from Shonan Institute of Technology University Japan. Currently he is mainly working on rural area communication and wireless internet technologies

4. CERNET2 DVTS Experiences (Bao/CERNET/CN)
16 DVTS is one of the most popular high-quality video applications on the Internet. In order to test large-scale distributed collaborative video environment, 25 WIDE DVTS systems are installed in 25 universities on the CERNET2 backbone. Our experiences on system configuration, dataflow transmission and demo layout are introduced in this presentation. The key lessons we learnt from our experience include user-controlled testing tools and open monitoring systems. Currently, this nation-wide system has been running everyday.
