Much of modern science is dependent on high performance distributed computing and data handling. This distributed infrastructure, in turn, depends on high speed networks and services - especially when the science infrastructure is widely distributed geographically - to enable the science because the science is dependent on high throughput so that the distributed computing and data management systems will be able to analyze data as quickly as instruments produce it. Two network services have emerged as essential for supporting high performance distributed applications: guaranteed bandwidth and multi-domain monitoring.
