DARPA Active Nets 2000 Demo at Georgia
Georgia Tech's Networking and Telecommunications group
will host the DARPA active
networking program demonstration and P.I. meeting in December of 2000. This page
contains information useful for groups who plan to attend and demonstrate projects at this meeting.
|Directions & Transportation|
The meeting will be held at the GCATT building which has a 225 seat auditorium and 3 multipurpose rooms (119A, B, and C). All demonstrations will be done in the auditorium; 119A&B will be used for demonstration preparation and will hold the majority of the equipment needed for demonstrations.119C will be used as a break-out room and lunch area.
Three projectors will display on the auditorium screen in a side-by-side configuration. The center projector should be used for the presentation of slides, as the input for it will be located at the podium. The other two projectors will be located in the first or second row, inputs to these will be close to the projectors. All of the projectors can take standard VGA/SVGA/XGA input, if you plan to use something other than that (DVI, S-video, RGB, or composite video) let us know so that we can be sure to have any additional equipment available.
A shared (switched Ethernet) network will be available
in 119A&B with Internet and Abilene (vBNS via Abilene) access as
well as DNS, reverse DNS, and DHCP services.
Static IP addresses will also be made available.
10/100baseT connections to the shared network will be available near
each of the projector display clients as well.
We recommend that teams use the shared network ports in the auditorium
along with laptops to display from remote machines in 119A&B or elsewhere.
For groups which require an isolated network between display clients in
the auditorium and the rest of their topology, we will be able to set up
private VLANs between ports in 119A&B to ports in the auditorium near
These VLANs as well as the shared network will travel over a dedicated
1000baseT connection between the auditorium and 119A&B.
Our external connectivity looks like this:

The demonstrations will take place December 6-8th, 2000. We have reserved the GCATT facilities for December 4th and 5th as setup days. It is highly recommended that groups doing remote demonstrations and/or groups with numerous pieces of equipment arrive on Monday morning. All other groups should plan to setup on Tuesday December 5th. We plan to do a brief demo Walk-Through in the auditorium with each group on the afternoon of the 5th. This is primarily to debug each group's display setup, as well as document the lighting and video setup requirements needed for each group.
Building access will be available from 8AM to 8PM on Monday and Tuesday, 8AM to 5PM on Wednesday through Friday.
