EARN was in many ways a natural competitor to RARE but there were several people who were involved in both organizations and there were clear advantages to cooperation. A series of meetings was held between Dennis Jennings, the President of EARN and Peter Linington, the President of RARE, in which common objectives were set out. This led later, after EARN had adopted a statement of intent on the transition to open standards, to EARN becoming an international member of RARE. 2 The First Step for COSINE Although they were primarily academics, many of the members of the new association had strong links with their national industry or research ministries.

The initial acceptance tests ensured that a newly connecting network was able to reach all the other connected networks over IXI. There was concern from PTT Telecom that RARE’s ongoing performance-monitoring would itself load the network unduly. Yet this extensive testing helped identify problems before they had an impact visible to the user networks; it also provided early availability and reliability reporting before it was available from PTT Telecom. It was not straightforward to get digital connections (64 kbps) for all the COSINE countries for IXI and this issue was one that had to be pressed on PTT Telecom.

Once it had decided to go ahead, the workshop did two more things. First, it asked all the representatives if their organizations were likely to participate actively, which they were, and then asked them to take this commitment back to their organizations for more formal ratification. Secondly, it drew up a list of priority items to be carried out in order to set the association up and start its work and attached to each item the name of a member prepared to take the lead in developing it. The priority items covered both technical and organizational issues.
