Technical Working Groups

The working groups (WG) constituted to work in RedCLARA are headed by engineers from the RedCLARA member institutions. They coordinate the functioning of these groups in eight relevant areas, aiming to help the Latin-American National Research and Education Networks (NRENs) to implant the most outstanding applications and new technologies for the benefits of their countries. Under the wing of CLARA-TEC, RedCLARA’s technical forum -led by the Technical Commission-, woringk groups have expanded and achieved significant developments for Latin American education and research.

Since 2004 to date, 25 technical work groups have been created in RedCLARA:

ALICE Working Group, 2004 – 2008

Coordinator: Daniel Díaz - RAAP - Peru

Objetives: To establish a Videoconference network using freeware software and commercial equipment. The ultimate goal is to use this Videoconference network to encourage the participation of each NREN in academic events in Latin America, Europe and other countries that have access to advanced networks.

Coordinator: Iván Morales - RAGIE - Guatemala
Objetives:

1. To find an efficient and scalable solution for the implementation of a telecommunications infrastructure that allows researchers and communicators to communicate with a service similar to traditional telephony;
2. To favour the implementation of an Open Source platform in order to avoid engaging CLARA member institutions to a specific equipment provider; and
3. To find a solution that is economic enough so that any institution can implement it without any budget problems.

Coordinator: Juan Carlos Guel - CUDI - Mexico
Objetives:

1. To establish a work framework, in terms of security, for each NREN.
2. To promote the development of new work groups on security in Latin America and the region through training programs aimed at Security WG members.
3. To establish discussion forums to exchange ideas, knowledge and experiences within the field of computer security, attention to incidents, etc.
4. To promote the exchange of data and information on related problems, incident management, etc.
5. To promote coordinated and prompt reactions for security incidents occurring on our infrastructure and that of each NREN.
6. To create documents of best practices focused on academic environments.
7. To build a data base of contact points responsible for security in each NREN.
8. To cooperate with similar initiatives, such as:

  • TF-CSIRT - Europe
  • APCERT - Asia-Pacific

Coordinator: Guillermo Cicileo - Argentina
Objetives:

1. To become a forum for the exchange of experiences and knowledge;
2. To provide support to those NRENs that want to implement Multicast;
3. To provide support to CLARA's NOC and NEG;
4. To coordinate initiatives emerging from CLARA's NRENs; and
5. To identify and promote Multicast content sources within CLARA.

Coordinator: Azael Fernández - CUDI - Mexico
Contact:This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
Objetives:

1. To prepare RedCLARA to run applications that benefit from the new IPv6 features;
2. To help the deployment and initial operation of IP v6 in the NREN's networks in order to get NOC support;
3. To research and make use of applications with IPv6 support in RedCLARA; and
4. To enhance collaboration with other IPv6 work groups from advanced networks in other parts of the world.

Coordinator: Eriko Porto - RNP - Brasil
Objetives: The AdRou-WG's objective is to analyse the routing demands of NRENs for the applications used in the institutions and for the matrix of traffic exchange between these institutions and destinations within and outside Latin America. The idea is that NRENs can use these demands and the resources available (equipment, hired links, available bandwidth, etc) to plan an optimal routing scheme and to suggest the suitable configurations to put it into practice, and thus fulfil the demands of researchers and their collaboration projects.

Coordinator: Hans Ludwing Reyes Chávez - CUDI - Mexico
Objetives: The main objective of this group is to develop and implement monitoring and performance measurement systems that provide the necessary information to measure the performance of the network and to detect and predict situations affecting its proper functioning. The idea is to determine the variables that the system will have to measure; to develop and/or implement monitoring tools; and to visualise and obtain reports offering enough information to quantify the network's good performance.

Coordinatora: Iara Machado - RNP - Brazil
Contact:This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
Objetives: The group's great objective is to promote technical as well as operational knowledge among the NRENs connected to RedCLARA, trying to level knowledge among them all. In addition, they intend to disseminate the use of advanced applications through RedCLARA. For this purpose, this WG is working on the elaboration of a training and dissemination plan defining the two most relevant issues among NRENs and identifying human (instructors) and physical resources available.

This WG carries out training events during the CLARA-TEC meetings and prepares didactic material on the topics proposed by the NRENs in order to promote future training events.
