Moonshot is currently being piloted in two main areas: within the UK Research and Education community and across the European (and beyond) Research and Education community. This wiki space provides details about the progress of each of these pilots.
Janet UK Pilot
The UK R&E pilot of Moonshot, run by Janet, is running from April 2013 to Decemeber December 2014. It's primary aims are to support participating sites in deploying the Moonshot technology and connecting to the Janet Trust Router. Entry to the Pilot closes on December 19th 2014, and thereafter we will be transitioning into an initial Production Service, planned to be live in March 2015, and primarily targeted at Research organisations.
GÉANT European Pilot
The GÉANT R&E pilot of Moonshot, run by GÉANT, is running from March 2013 to March 2015. It's primary aims are to demonstrate how Moonshot technology can satisfy different use cases within the European Research and Education Community; and to establish an initial Trust Router infrastructure, in which multiple European NRENs operate interconnected Trust Routers.
