Achieving this requires: End-to-end monitoring extending to all regions serving our community. A coherent approach to monitoring that allows physicists throughout our community to extract clear, unambiguous and inclusive information is a prerequisite for this. Upgrading campus infrastructures. These are still not designed to support Gbps data transfers in most of HEP centers. One reason for the under-utilization of National and International backbones, is the lack of bandwidth to groups of end-users inside the campus. Removing local, last mile, and nat’l and int’l bottlenecks end-to-end, whether technical or political in origin. While National and International backbones have reached 2.5 to 10 Gbps speeds in many countries, the bandwidths across borders, the countryside or the city may be much less. This problem is very widespread in our community, with examples stretching from China to South America to the Northeastern U.S. Root causes for this vary, from lack of local infrastructure to unfavorable pricing policies. ICFA Report: Networks for HENPGeneral Conclusions (3): ICFA Report: Networks for HENP General Conclusions (3) We must Remove Firewall Bottlenecks [Another “Digital Divide”; also at some Major HEP Labs] Firewall systems are so far behind the needs that they won’t match the data flow of Grid applications. The maximum throughput measured across available products is limited to a few X 100 Mbps ! It is urgent to address this issue by designing new architectures that eliminate/alleviate the need for conventional firewalls. For example, Point-to-point provisioned high-speed circuits as proposed by emerging Light Path technologies could remove the bottleneck. With endpoint authentication [as in Grid AAA systems], the point-to-point paths are private, intrusion resistant circuits, so they should be able to bypass site firewalls if the endpoints (sites) trust each other. We should deploy high performance (TCP) toolkits in a form that is suitable for widespread use by users. We should train the community to use these tools well, and wisely. SCIC Main Conclusion for 2003Setting the Tone for 2004: SCIC Main Conclusion for 2003 Setting the Tone for 2004 The disparity among regions in HENP could increase even more sharply, as we learn to use advanced networks effectively, and we develop dynamic Grid systems in the “most favored” regions We must therefore take action, and work to Close the Digital Divide To make Physicists from All World Regions Full Partners in Their Experiments; and in the Process of Discovery This is essential for the health of our global experimental collaborations, our plans for future projects, and our field.

The Internet enables the use of content which is vital for individuals and for institutions engaged in teaching, learning and research. In many countries use of the Internet is severely restricted by the high telecommunications cost, leading to inequality in realising the benefits of education and research. Research staff and students in countries with liberal telecommunications policies favouring educational use are gaining social and economic advantage over countries with restrictive, high-cost policies. The potential benefits of access to the Internet are not available to all. The signatories to this message invite scholars in every country to join them in expressing concern to governments and research funding agencies at the effect of high telecommunications costs upon individuals and institutions undertaking teaching, learning and research. The situation in many countries could be improved through educational discounts on normal telecommunications costs, or through the lifting of monopolies. It is for each country to determine its own telecommunications policies but the need for low-cost access to the Internet for educational purposes is a need which is common to the whole of humankind.” Slide44: Dai Davies SERENATE Workshop Feb. 2003 Ratio to 114 If Include Turkey, Malta; Correlated with the Number of Competing Vendors www.serenate.org Virtual Silk Highway: Virtual Silk Highway Hub Earth Station at DESY with access to the European NRENs and the Internet via GEANT Providing International Internet access directly National Earth Station at each Partner site Operated by DESY, providing international access SCPC up-link, common down-link, using DVB Additional earth stations from other sources – none yet Routers for each Partner site Linked on one side to the Satellite Channel On the other side to the NREN The SILK Highway Countries in Central Asia & the Caucasus SILK: Bandwidth Plan as of March 2003: SILK: Bandwidth Plan as of March 2003 Note: Satellite Links are a Boon to the Region, but Unit Costs are Very High compared to Fiber.

The SERENATE studies bring together the research and education networks of Europe, national governments and funding bodies, the European Commission, traditional and "alternative" network operators, equipment manufacturers, and the scientific and education community as the users of networks and services. Study into European Research and Education Networking as Targeted by eEurope www.serenate.org From Summary and Conclusions by D.O. Williams, CERN Optics and Fibres[Message to NRENs; or Nat’l Initiatives]: Optics and Fibres [Message to NRENs; or Nat’l Initiatives] If there is one single technical lesson from SERENATE it is that transmission is moving from the electrical domain to optical. The more you look at underlying costs the more you see the need for users to get access to fibre. When there’s good competition users can still lease traditional communications services (bandwidth) on an annual basis. But: Without enough competition prices go through the roof. A significant “divide” exists inside Europe – with the worst countries [Macedonia, B-H, Albania, etc.] 1000s of times worse off than the best. Also many of the 10 new EU members are ~5X worse off than the 15 present members. Our best advice has to be “if you’re in a mess, you must get access to fibre”. Also try to lobby politicians to introduce real competition; In Serbia – still a full telecoms monopoly – the two ministers talked and the research community was given a fibre pair all around Serbia !

For the past three years the SCIC has focused on understanding and seeking the means of reducing or eliminating the Digital Divide, and proposed in ICFA that these issues, as they affect our field of High Energy Physics, be brought to our community for discussion. This led to ICFA’s approval, in July 2003, of the Digital Divide and HEP Grid Workshop.
