THE DUAL NETWORK - TOWARDS A PROGRAMMABLE NETWORK MACHINE
The job of the DUAL network is to provide fast X25 services and to interconnect ISO 8820.3 (Ethernet TM) networks and other LANs installed in the JRC campus. This is what it does as its main function. However the heart of the DUAL network has been designed with somewhat longer term ambitions in mind. It offers in particular multicast and synchronization facilities which are expected to add a new dimension to the penetration of distributed parallel processing techniques in the JRC administrative and scientific applications.
