They arrive at sites who knows when
Bottom line: IP video troubleshooting can be a great way to “forge” partnerships (in the tradition of very hot fires, lots of pounding, etc.)
We (multi)cast our AGN packets onto the net
Most showed up in time (some ain’t here yet)
We (multi)cast our AGN packets, both sight and sound
But re-syncing them up, man its bringin’ me down
Major AGN demo/intro training session in June 2003
Result: Support for a cautious move to AGN, provided that we address real-time support issues (e.g., how many engineers does it take to reboot an AGN room?)
Year #2 (just completing): “smooth” H.323 course delivery
Year #3 (plan): Continue H.323 for course delivery, aggressively use AGN for other communication, develop uses of “shared cyberinfrastructure” to support research
AGN transition: Now rolling out 9 pre-packaged AGNs from inSORS, Inc., plus inSORS central capture/playback; will follow up with training, test sessions, development of “session management” protocols appropriate for available bandwidth, …
Year #4 and beyond
