DANTE at Telecoms99 in KPN stand

On behalf of the Quantum consortium and as a major customer of KPN, DANTE was invited to exhibit at the KPN stand during Telecoms 99 in Geneva from 10-17 October 1999. To have a visible demonstration of the TEN-155 network, DANTE asked the EDISON project to demonstrate their use of the TEN-155 Managed Bandwidth Service (MBS). In addition to a distributed simulation for astronauts' and ground controllers' training, EDISON showed a demonstration of distributed vibro-accoustic car design as well as design for an automated transfer vehicle used to support the International Space Station. The TEN-155 MBS connected EDISON sites in France and Germany to the PalEXPO Centre in Geneva.
