A busy calendar

The TSSG has been organising so many events over past 3 months that its been hard to keep up. Most of these events have had over 100 people from Irish academia and industry, engaging with various aspects of our activity set in the TSSG.

In addition we've taken part in a number of critical events, including an Enterprise Ireland information day on the Future Internet PPP call in EU FP7 (c.f. White Paper on FI PPP), as well as taking part locally in a WIT Research Day last Monday. The TSSG usually try and have 2-3 events in Dublin per year, but 2010 looks like being a bumper year for event organisation.

Patsy Phelan at FutureNet 2010

It is great to see the TSSG pushing some of its ideas at big events. Here we are helping re-think the Internet from scratch, by allowing experimentation immediately with any new form of networking protocol, directly programmed in Java. Patsy Phelan, one of our researchers who has been working on the EU FP7 project 4WARD, has been promoting the flexible software he has developed that allows us to deploy new or tweaked networking protocols, at any OSI layer, coded directly in Java. The platform will be released under an open source licence in the near future.

Welcome to FutureNet 2010. For over 10 years FutureNet has been the must attend event for service providers, IT managers, and consultants to stay ahead of the rapidly changing communications services market. This year is no different as we'll address the sustainability of the Internet for business, look at emerging trends around Ethernet, wireless, and SIP, and help you put together a "Green" strategy by evaluating new service options. We'll also examine the management and support strategies necessary to achieve success. We look forward to seeing you this year at FutureNet 2010 in Boston!

IPv6 2010
Originally uploaded by IPv6 Ireland
On Wed 19th May 2010 we held the 2nd successful Irish IPv6 Summit in Dublin Castle with an impressive array of international speakers, and a registered audience of over 100 delegates.

Pictured to the right are myself, Eamon Ryan TD (Minister of Communications), Roger O'Connor (Department of Communications, Energy and Natural Resources).

The event was streamed live over IPv4 and IPv6, and edited videos of the presentations will be available shortly. The slides for each presentation have been posted and are available now. The event received some good press coverage, including local radio coverage by WLRFM and press coverage by Silicon Republic.

We now look forward to further engagement with Irish industry and the public sector to help promote IPv6 in Ireland. Contact me if you would like to get involved.
