This is a good time to collaborate online. The Internet could bring together groups to collaborate on crisis management, economic reconstruction questions and could generate innovative ideas to solve problems.
- What could the business community and civil Society do to help the Government manage the crisis of the time?
- What are the post crisis challenges? Not just restoration, but a renewal. In what ways could we make the economy work better than before?
As part of this Conference, Jane Coffin, the Senior Vice President of Internet Growth, Internet Society would join us from Washington DC to talk about the emerging trend the world over in Internet connectivity technologies – COMMUNITY NETWORKS, which are city-wide Community operated Internet Networks, some including Community Radio, which might also have a social enterprise investment design. Andrew Sullivan, President and CEO of the Internet Society has also consented to join us. Other invites include the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, Internet Community leaders from the Internet Society, ICANN and IGF.
Please register here and join us for the “Internet DURING a shut-down: Do we need ‘more’ Internet?” Virtual Roundtable today.
The initial Inter Planetary Networking technologies have been developed by Vint Cerf and others. In Interplanetary networking the time delay (latency) and the lack of continuous network connectivity (as for example, waiting for the next satellite to come into the communication range) are problems that needed to be solved. Hence the Interplanetary Network has to be Delay Tolerant and Disruption tolerant, whereas on the Internet, by the present protocols, the packets would be dropped when there is a line disruption or any abnormal delay.
The experimental protocols have been developed by members of the Delay & Disruption Tolerant Networking Research Group (which operates under the aegis of the Internet Research Task Force).
The Internet Society has shared an update from NASA’s Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate’s (HEOMD) on its Advanced Exploration Systems (AES) program.
While much of the focus is on a human mission to Mars, there are also signs of NASA’s increased commitment to Delay & Disruption Tolerant Networking (DTN).
- Disruption Tolerant Networking (DTN): Infusion of store and forward communications protocols into NASA and international missions.
- Demonstrated supervisory control of ESA Eurobot from the International Space Station (ISS using) DTN.
- Agreement with KARI (the South Korean Space Agency) to conduct DTN experiments.
With an increased dependency upon robotic missions to pave the way for a human mission to Mars, and increasing realization that the data is the mission, these are encouraging signs that DTN is gathering momentum as a critical component of guaranteeing mission success.

The Asia Pacific Regional Internet Governance Forum (APrIGF) 2014 is hosted in New Delhi along with SANOG 24th Edition and Youth Internet Governance Forum (YIGF) 2014 in the Hotel Crown Plaza, Greater Noida from 1st August to 9th August, 2014.
Asia Pacific Regional Internet Governance Forum (APrIGF) has been held annually since initiated in 2010 in Hong Kong. The APrIGF serves as a platform for aggregating IGF related discussions and collaborations at the regional level, which ultimately advances the Internet governance development in Asia Pacific.
The main theme of APRIGF 2014 is “Internet to Equinet – An Equitable Internet for the Next Billion!”, with the accelerating demand in Asia for internet addresses, Asia Pacific Regional Internet Governance Forum, provides a multi-stakeholder platform with the emphasis on the diversity of participants and openness of the discussion.
