GLIF, the Global Lambda Integrated Facility

The first international lambda for research networking was ordered by SURFnet in 2001 between StarLight in Chicago and NetherLight in Amsterdam. Since than Lambda pioneers started to meet in so called LambdaGrid workshops and developed what is now called hybrid networking. In 2003 at the third LambdaGrid Workshop in Reykjavik it was agreed to continue this cooperation under the name GLIF: Global Lambda Integrated Facility. Today, hybrid networking is rapidly moving from pioneers to mainstream research networking. In this presentation the history, the current organisation as well as the future challenges of GLIF will be addressed.
