Michael Sinatra, ESnet

Michael Sinatra is Senior Network Engineer at the Energy Sciences Network (ESnet). Based in Berkeley, California, Michael worked at the University of California, Berkeley until 2011, starting as a junior consultant and moving to principal network engineer of the campus network. He is also a member of the NANOG Program Committee and has served in the past on the program committees of the CENIC Annual Conference and Internet2 Joint Techs workshops.
Abstract: The fundamental differences and similarities between modern research and commodity networks are discussed, as is the history and origin of these two types of networks. I place a special emphasis on tools and protocols to show how research and commodity networks both complement one another, while differentiating themselves from each other. I conclude with a look toward future trends and a discussion of avenues for further collaboration between research and commodity networks.
