The goal of I-Light’s CI Plan is to ensure that the advanced networking needs of I- Light researchers are met with the minimum of friction. This goal permeates through I-Light’s operations, including its funding model, which effective discounts the fees for all traffic to/from research & education institutions. To meet this goal, I-Light manages a continuous process of needs assessment, infrastructure/capacity/financial planning, upgrade implementation, and operational support.

The activities supported by this proposal, including workshops, perfSONAR deployment, and directory of CI-intensive research, will be incorporated into I-Light’s standard operations going forward. It will also be supported via I-Light’s budget, within the discretion of its budget advisory committee.
