"Rollout of New Exemplar Network"



Invited speaker:

Fergal Ward 


Wednesday 9th December - 11-12pm - LRG032




The Exemplar Network is a Department of Communications Energy and
Natural Resources programme with Intune Networks to rollout this
technology in Ireland first and create the world's most advanced
telecoms infrastructure. Conceptually the network resembles an optical
version of Ethernet CSMA-CA where the laser technology allows new
dynamics in physical layers L0-L2. This in turn unlocks new capabilities
in the IP & applications layers which can lead to new applications in
the interactive cloud, high-definition video on demand (HD VOD), true
quality of service (QoS) and more economical telecommunications. The
Exemplar network will be part of a new national telecoms infrastructure
for research and innovation in Ireland where UL groups can participate
in the Exemplar Program and discover how this innovation will transform
the Internet. 




Fergal Ward is the Exemplar Programme Manager responsible for the
physical roll out of the Exemplar Network. He has been six years with
Intune, having been part of the original Intune team. Intune has
traditionally been a laser systems  developer but in the last three
years, it has built on-top of this laser technology and developed an
Optical Burst Switched network architecture (long considered the holy
grail in optical networking).
