Cooperation agreement with KISTI
ICT ResultsThe PHOSPHORUS project consortium, and specifically, its Work Package 1, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with a non-EU institution: the Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information, which holds an outstanding position on the Asia research community. This cooperation, started at the end of 2008, explores the possibility to share the experience and technical knowledge and research between PHOSPHORUS and KISTI, letting the latter join as a new member on the optical dynamic switching test-bed controlled by the Harmony system in Phosphorus. KISTI has connected its data plane with Harmony's data plane via GLORIAD/Canarie and the Communications Research Centre in Canada. Moreover, Harmony software is controlling now the Korean segment of the test-bed, having KISTI installed Argia software as their Network Resource Provisioning System. This new domain was involved in the successful demonstrations of Harmony at the PHOSPHORUS booth in the Terena Networking Conference 2009. Further information can be found on
