The increasingly global nature of research and education today means that National Research and Education Networks (NRENs) around the world are joining forces to provide interoperable services that support global collaborations.
AARNet is playing an active leadership role in developing the Global Realtime Communications (GRTC) service, for example. This service aims to facilitate collaborations between project partners located worldwide.
We’re eager to test a range of use cases and are interested in helping international collaboration groups communicate via voice and video over the GRTC platform using their institutions’ existing multimedia systems.
For a list of nations participating in the global NRENum.net community and the GRTC, please refer to the member section at http://www.nrenum.net.
To learn more, provide feedback or suggest an international collaboration group involved in research and education, please contact Bill Efthimiou on +612 97796952 or email:firstname.lastname@example.org.
