Why is it important?

  • Building an AG, and having it work, is only half the job completed. It is becoming ever so critical that the Access Grid works to a consistently high standard.

    • People are happy to fund research projects, but not general running costs.

    • People will spend money on better computer hardware, but who generally considers funding better lighting.

  • Access Grid nodes are no longer simply research “toys”, as many are becoming production nodes.

  • Some people are looking at other Video Conferencing Technologies, due to experience with poor AG sessions.

  • Funding often relies on outcomes - having a node quality assured could be one such positive outcome.
