Due to the significant influence of the higher education community and the huge open education market, GÉANT and its NRENs have wisely started to pay more attention to the long tail of users, those tens of millions beyond the high demand researchers who are typically sitting at universities, colleges, campuses and school districts and mostly satisfied with the commodity network and commercial cloud services.
Draft agenda:

1. Introduction to GÉANT SIG-TNE (Esther Wilkinson, Jisc)

2. TNE data – regional, national and global (Urszula Chomica, Internet2 and Richard French, Jisc)

3. Global TNE policies (Alexander van den Hil, SURFnet)

4. TNE service development, challenges and opportunities (Wan Li, CERNET, and Baoyu Wang, Jisc)

5. Tools, Toolkits and resources (Esther Wilkinson and Richard French, Jisc)

6. Concluding remarks and next steps (Esther Wilkinson, Jisc)
