Milo Medin

Carl Malamud interviews Milo Medin, one of the instrumental figures in the NASA Science Internet (NSI). Join the world of the routing fanatics as Milo explains the acronym-intensive world of NAPs, GIXs, and FIXs. Milo also discusses the role of the Appropriate Use Policy in his network, why ATM is useful but also needs to be combined with an internetworking protocol, and how NASA combines its mission-oriented networking needs with general-purpose links for much of the Pacific.

Also this week, Dr. Jeff Case *IS* Dr. SNMP. Down on the farm, he has a saying. In fact, you'll find that Dr. SNMP has a saying for most every situation.
