Role of HONET (High-capacity Optical Network and Enabling Technologies) A series of Symposia in International CollaborationThe ability of Internet to collaborate on global development is one of the most fundamentaladvances since the Industrial revolution. High-speed Internet, is driven by global opticalnetworks utilizing various photonic- and network-technologies, Lambda Grid, fiber-optic, wireless/optical-wireless as enabling technologies for IT and Telecommunication from thearchitectural, security, signal transport and application perspectives. In order to achieve suchconnectivity it is important to bring together professionals and practitioners from the academia,industry and government functionaries from around the world. The goals are to share knowledgeand experience in the field of information and communication technologies for globalpartnerships and collaborations aiding economic growth to support peace, prosperity andsustainability in the world.The objective of our presentation is to share and discuss the results of holding series ofinternational symposia on High Capacity Optical Networks and Enabling Technologies(HONET) in different countries. It started in 2004 with the sponsorship of NSF’s Office ofInternational Science and Engineering (OISE) and was held at Islamabad, Pakistan incollaboration with the National University of Science and Technology, supported by HigherEducation Commission of Pakistan. Subsequently, the symposium was then moved toCharlotte North Carolina, USA, Penang Malaysia, Dubai UAE, and Alexandria Egypt and againwill be held at Cairo Egypt in December (19-21), 2010. The URL http://honet-ict.org providesarchives and information on the upcoming events. Details of organizing these symposia and roleof various participating organizations in different countries will also be discussed.
