Research Networking and Grid Services

Grid computing is often perceived as a marketing strategy by commercial companies or an argument of researchers to seek funding.
The presentation shows developments in research networking. SWITCH offers pure network connectivity, performance and quality services, a coordinated authentication and authorisation infrastructure and security services for the Swiss Higher Education community.
Behind that misty cloud of hype there is a lot of real work going on.
Countless Grid application projects all over the world drive a collection of increasingly sophisticated Grid technologies.
Putting this together with initiatives like SwissBioGrid and the Large Hadron Collider Grid, the Swiss researchers become part of the Grid community.

Urs Eppenberger got his diploma of electrical engineering at ETH Zürich.
Since 16 years he works for the Swiss research network SWITCH. As Head of Business Development he works currently at the strategy of SWITCH and analyses the potential of new communication technologies.
