Our future technology roadmap – where to from here?

To support Australia’s participation at the forefront of global research and education, AARNet constantly looks to the future state of the network.  We continuously plan where we need to be, predicting demand, not just in terms of capacity but also in terms of flexibility and intelligent networking.

We not only look to projects such as the Square Kilometre Array to predict the vast research driven network capacities which will be needed in the future, but we also need to continue to understand the trigger points for the online demands of real time education.  We have just moved from 10Gbps to 40Gbps and 100Gbps, when will we need to look to implement 400Gbps and 1Tbps connections?

Have your say

We are formalising processes to provide our stakeholders with a rolling roadmap of future network technologies.  As a feedback loop we are also looking to engage with stakeholders through consultation across all institutions in order to determine what the institutional roadmaps look like for the next 5 years and how these will feed into the bigger picture for AARNet.
