Gigabits Networking Research (GIGA) Project
The Gigabits Networking Research effort includes these current tasks
on high speed networking:
Infrastructure Support Activities (INFRA)
Reservation Protocol (RSVP)
Internet Naming and
Directory Extensions (MINDEX)
Basic Open ATM
ARPA Support for IETF (ASI)
The Gigabits Networking Research effort also included these completed
Atomic -- early investigation into a gigabit speed LAN
PC-Atomic -- porting the early Atomic LAN hardware interface to the
486 platform (PCATOMIC)
Tunnel -- protype development of an IP level filtering firewall
ZAPT -- prototype development of multimedia teleconferencing on NeXT computers
Note that the Atomic effort has evolved and grown, now supported by
the NAAAN contract in two related efforts
Other developments begun under the GIGA contract are also receiving
further attention under the TNT contract, see
NIA. The BOAT effort is related to
the new RAISE contract.
