Discover In The Field – the international blog telling fascinating stories from around the world about people and projects connected by high-capacity research and education networks. A substantial number of blogposts are related to Scandinavia:
DeIC has re-issued a request for tender for optical transmission equipment. The request was originally issued in December, but too few vendors submitted requests to participate. Therefore, the process was stopped. It has now been restarted.
DeIC expects to spend between DKK 18 million and 30 million on optical transmission equipment for Forskningsnettet, the Danish National Research and Education Network.

First, a number of potential vendors are selected. DeIC expects to select five vendors.
NORDUnet and Swedish Sunet are building a new network for the Swedish research and education community. NORDUnet network architect Fredrik "Hugge" Korsbäck's blog offers in-depth technical information.
Twice a year, Swedish Sunet meets with its customers and partners at the Sunet Days. This time the venue is Högskolan Kristianstad in the southernmost part of Sweden. From the 11th to 14th of April representatives from organisations connected to Sunet meet and discuss current topics. Usually the Sunet Days attract between 200 and 250 participants from all over Sweden.
Research and education networks are not only about fibres, routers and switches. They also try to contribute to the common good of Internet users. Enter CrypTech, hosted by NORDUnet and making the Internet a little bit safer for everybody.
The conference theme of “Securing the Internet” make the Programme Committee hope for a wide range of views and perspectives in both presentations and lightning talks. To set the scene for this, keynote Mikko Hyppönen will give his views on security, and there will even be a complete track dedicated to security.
However, no NORDUnet conference without room for more than just one topic. The programme will also feature a network track covering almost everything from architecture to implementation, and as usual there will be ample room for technical of relevance to the community.
Researchers who build networks or design advanced distributed applications now have the opportunity to test their designs in a real-world environment – without the risk of breaking services belonging to others in the process. The GÉANT Testbeds Service (GTS) is ready to welcome users.
