Plenary Abstracts:

Community Engagement for the Future of NOAA’s Shared Network Infrastructures
From the campus to the cloud, shared network infrastructures are essential to NOAA research and critical operations. These infrastructures play a supporting role across NOAA’s data management activities, including ingesting, processing, disseminating, and preserving data—whether these activities take place on a campus, in a data center, or in the Cloud. Understanding networks as an underlying thread that connects these activities, the EDM community plays a key stakeholder role in setting the direction for NOAA’s shared network infrastructures, including N-Wave – NOAA’s Enterprise Network.

Since 2010, N-Wave has operated a national fiber optic network backbone to deliver highly available, secure, high-speed network transport and services to support all of NOAA’s missions. Unique among U.S. government agencies, NOAA’s N-Wave network is built in partnership with the national science, research and education network community, offering direct peering exchanges that benefit NOAA scientists and collaborators across the country.

Join this session to learn more about N-Wave's role in NOAA-wide data transfer via these shared infrastructures, including in-place services for optimized Cloud transport.
