Project ID: IST-1999-20675
Funded under: FP5-IST

Abstract

This document provides a brief update on the achievements of a project funded under the "Research Networking" theme of the FP5 Information Society Technologies (IST) programme. It describes the objectives, experimental work and results of the project.

ATRIUM is validating high-speed network technologies to allow demanding end-user applications (including on-demand video streaming services, video conferencing, gaming and high-speed GRID computing). The ATRIUM advanced testbed supports QoS (Quality of Service), Multicast, IPv6 and fast restoration of link or node failures in order to demonstrate applications supporting collaborative activities and providing interactive access to information and resources in a way that is not possible in today's Internet.
