AARNet is proud to be one of seventeen organisations to receive a SCInet Spirit of Innovation Award during a private ceremony at SC22 on Monday 14 November.
The other organisations recognised are APONET, ARENA-PAC, CENIC, Ciena, Cisco, HARNET, Internet2, KISTI, NICT, NII, Pacific Northwest Gigapop, REANNZ, SingAREN, TransPAC, University of Hawaii, and Verizon.
These organisations were instrumental in supporting demonstrations involving large-scale international science at SC22 – the international conference for high performance computing, networking, storage, and analysis.
“The winners of the 2022 SCinet Spirit of Innovation Award have embraced the spirit of collaboration and cooperation that showcases the best there is to offer in demonstrating, implementing, and operating leading-edge solutions to challenging problems,” said Matt Zekauskas, SCinet chair. “This collaboration is truly special to SCinet, and we are all encouraged by and appreciative of their efforts to showcase partnership and innovation.”
At SC22, Japan’s National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) demonstrated full 400 Gbps End to End (E2E) data/video transfer across the Pacific, led by the Information-technology Promotion Agency, Japan (IPA). This 400 Gbps transmission utilized five 100Gbps links between Japan and the United States in cooperation with members of the APOnet research and education network collaboration, including Pacific Wave, TransPAC, UH, ARENA-PAC, SingAREN, NII, HARNET, and AARNet.
NICT also demonstrated the impact of uncompressed 8K video processing on edge computing using the Pacific Wave/TransPAC 100Gbps link and other capacity from the APOnet collaboration. The precision of the visual definition possible with this uncompressed 8K video could enable international health care delivery, even surgery, across oceans. This is a world first with this technology.
