8B - Improving Data Transfer Performance

Radio telescopes (e-VLBI) and media Grid computing are two good examples of applications requiring strict network performance. This session shows three performance tests made by these applications and how the use of some network services (lightpaths and PERT) and control protocols (GMPLS) will improve the results achieved.
