PFN Physical File Name (grid computing) Inc., a leading provider of intelligent network communications solutions, announced today that Fran Reichmeyer, senior network architect, will present at the iBAND Conference being held November 8-10, 2000 at the San Jose San Jose, city, United States
San Jose (sănəzā`, săn hōzā`), city (1990 pop. 782,248), seat of Santa Clara co., W central Calif.; founded 1777, inc. 1850. McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, Calif. Please Note: This session, titled, "Common Open Policy Service (COPS) Management for MultiProtocol Label Switching (networking) Multiprotocol Label Switching - (MPLS) A packet switching protocol developed by the IETF. Initially developed to improve switching speed, other benefits are now seen as being more important. (MPLS (1) (MultiProtocol Lambda Switching) The earlier name for GMPLS. See GMPLS.
(2) (MultiProtocol Label Switching) A standard from the IETF for including routing information in the packets of an IP network. ) Traffic Engineering," will be held on November 9, 2000 at 4:45 p.m.
Reichmeyer, who has more than seven years experience in developing IP and network solutions, will discuss how using the COPS protocol enables a single management mechanism for provisioning, dynamic mapping of traffic onto MPLS tunnels and monitoring and maintaining tunnel performance. As Next Generation networks evolve, more focus is being placed on adding intelligence to the network edge to drive the high-speed core technologies, such as MPLS capable optical switches. The use of COPS to manage MPLS extends control of the network resources to the edge of the core, where it can be integrated with business level policies to provide an intelligent communications infrastructure to the users and applications driving the network.
The iBAND Conference is a technical planning event focusing on how Internet traffic Internet traffic is the flow of data around the Internet. It includes web traffic, which is the amount of that data that is related to the World Wide Web, along with the traffic from other major uses of the Internet, such as electronic mail and peer-to-peer networks. management, service provisioning and performance measurement turns raw bandwidth into cost-effective network platforms able to run applications and business services. iBAND is being held concurrently with ISPCON Fall 2000, a conference focused on Internet Service Providers Internet service provider (ISP)
Company that provides Internet connections and services to individuals and organizations. For a monthly fee, ISPs provide computer users with a connection to their site (see data transmission), as well as a log-in name and password. .
