The Operating Innovative Networks (OIN) workshop series is designed to equip university and laboratory network engineers with the knowledge and training needed to build next-gen campus networks that are optimized for data-intensive science. 
 
Presented by experts from the Department of Energy’s ESnet, Indiana University and Internet2, the workshop series will focus on Science DMZ network architectures, perfSONARperformance measurement software, Data Transfer Nodes, and emerging Software Defined Networking techniques. Combined, these technologies are proven to support high-performance, big data science applications, including high-volume bulk data transfer, remote experiment control, and data visualization. 
 
The workshops will consist of two days of presentation material, along with hands-on exercises designed to encourage immediate adoption of these technologies. By the end of the event, attendees will have better understandings of the requirements for supporting scientific use of the network, and tools and strategies that can be used to mitigate problems users may encounter.
 
The hosts are planning four to five similar workshops at diverse geographical locations around the country. This will provide multiple opportunities for university and laboratory engineers to participate over the next 12 months.
