Abstract

TEIN2 is the first large-scale research and education IT network for the Asia-Pacific. It connects ten countries in the region, and provides direct connectivity to Europe's GÉANT2 network. One of the enormous advantages of today's information age is the ability to engage in meaningful exchange and cooperation with colleagues thousands of kilometres away. Making the most of modern communication tools, such as video-conferencing and visual communication, however, depends on secure, reliable fibre optic computing networks. The TEIN2 project provides the critical link between European and Asian grids, making research collaboration as easy as turning on a computer and thus providing also important support to S&T cooperation.
