TNC20, the 36th edition of the largest and most prestigious European research and education networking conference, will be hosted by Jisc, the United Kingdom’s National Research and Education Network organisation, and will be held in Brighton, UK.
TNC brings together decision makers, networking and collaboration specialists, plus identity and access management experts from all major European NRENs, universities, worldwide sister institutions, as well as industry representatives. Through keynotes speeches by renowned specialists, varying parallel sessions and demonstrations, TNC presents participants with a unique overview of the latest developments in research networking, both in the technical field and in the area of application and management.
RENATER participe at this event
3A : Community driven Solutions
09/06/2020 de 16.00 - 17.30
Laurent Aublet-cuvelier (RENATER) "On premise email collaborative platform provided to the French Research and Education community: Yes we can !"
On premise email collaborative platform provided to the French Research and Education community: Yes we can !
We will present the Messaging and Collaborative platform provided by RENATER (the French NREN) to the French Research and Higher Education community, which is hosted and operated by RENATER.
This service aims to provide a real alternative to major commercial platforms, and takes into account French government data security recommendations, for example data are stored in France by RENATER.
Speakers: Laurent Aublet-Cuvelier (RENATER)
7B: Program the network
10/06 /2020 à 16h - 17h30
Xavier Jeanin, (RENATER) "White Box for Research and Education"
White Box for Research and Education
The networking industry landscape is evolving fast, driven by cloud market. The new router type called white box, is not only very competitive in comparison with traditional router but also decouples the network operating system from the hardware in order to remove the lock market effect. Is the network in the same situation now as when Linux appeared in the UNIX world? Is white box a real opportunity for research and education networks? In order to suggest a first answer, the performance analyses, the use cases investigation and the feedback from the first white box deployments in production will be presented.
Speakers: Xavier Jeannin, (RENATER)
9B: Creating the perfect wave (Time & Frequency Standards)
11/06 /2020 de 11h00 - 12h30
Paul Eric Pottie, (LNE-SYRTE) "First industrial grade optical frequency link deployment over RENATER network for ultrastable frequency transfer"
First industrial grade optical frequency link deployment over RENATER network for ultrastable frequency transfer
Within the last decade, optical atomic clocks have shown to be outperforming the best Cesium clocks, which are used to realize the unit of time. Being able to connect those new clocks has shown tremendous potential that would stimulate multitude of domains (fundamental research, GNSS, dissemination of the SI second, smart grid…) leading to the emergence of new Time and Frequency services. We report here on first long-haul bidirectional industrial implementation operating @1542.14 nm and co-propagating with data-traffic, Paris-Lille (2018) and Paris-Grenoble (2020). Service is fully integrated in RENATER day-to-day procedures (commissioning, operating, monitoring) as any other standard service.

10C: Wave patterns Optical Time & Frequency Network
11/06 /2020 de 11h00- 12h30
Xavier jeannin, (RENATER) "Optical Time & Frequency Network"
Optical Time & Frequency Network
Time and Frequency (T&F) services are critical to many civilian and industrial sectors, like positioning, energy, finance, advanced science use case. Therefore T&F services become of major interest. During the past few years, National Metrology Institutes have successfully developed non-standard fibre-based techniques. These new techniques are showing unmatched stability performances – three orders of magnitude better than the best commercial services. Once again, NRENs are in a strong position to undertake applied research in a way that commercial companies would find difficult. OTFN is catalysing the emergence of these new T&F services in Europe by creating new opportunities and raising awareness. Therefore, will proudly present early achievements together with recommendations.

10D: Hoist the Sails … EOSC at TNC
11/06 /2020 de 14:00 - 15:30
Session Chair: Sabine JAUME-RAJAONIA (RENATER)
Hoist the Sails … EOSC at TNC
This lively and interactive session will provide updates from three EOSC Working Groups with major relevance to the NREN community: Architecture, Sustainability and Landscape. Speakers are the EOSC Executive Board members and a NREN representative who are chairs or members of these working groups and they will present their work to date and their planning towards the end of 2020, when the current EOSC Governance ends. In the second part of the session these speakers will be joined in a panel by three representatives from our community: from an NREN, from GÉANT, as well as a university leading Europe in digital curation.
Speakers: Alberto Perez Gomez, (RedIRIS), Ms Cathrin Stöver, (Executive Board member/GÉANT), Edit Herczog, (GÉANT), Jan Hrusak, (EOSC Executive Board Member), Jean-Francois Abramatic, (EOSC Executive Board member), Ronan Byrne, (HEANET), Sarah Jones, (EOSC Executive Board member/Digital Curation Centre)
