Indiana University, Internet2, ESNet, and Clemson University are excited to host an Operating Innovative Networks Workshop. This session will focus on giving CC-NIE campus and Innovation Initiative Platform pilot campus network engineers practical information for deploying and then supporting Software Defined Network and Science DMZ technologies within their networks. By providing solid foundations in both implementation and operation, the workshop will help participants maximize the usefulness of these technologies -- and feel confident in providing reliable and innovative network services.
