Paper Abstract

Tele-imaging consultation requires high performance network, which can be fulfilled by Internet2 technology. International partnership allows institutions around the world to join Internet2 outside of North America. Once this partnership has been formed, there are three major issues of connectivity: commercial issue, cost of international link and performance issue. Those issues are worthy to be considered before establishing the International Internet2 connection. Since the international link involves the collaborative efforts from vendors, there exists infrastructure looping inside US, which degrade the performance and raise the cost.
