In 2021 Internet2 completed the deployment of its Next Generation Infrastructure (NGI), which included a refresh of its fiber, hardware, software, and the underlying architectures.

NGI also strives to fundamentally change the way the entire community can interact with the entire Internet2 platform - namely providing extensible access to the full stack of services; by combining these services in new and innovative ways the community can collaboratively work to meet the emerging demands.

This presentation will focus on the lessons learned from the NGI deployment and resulting impact for future delivery of cloud and research services. We will highlight the change in methodologies for delivering services at Layer 1, Layer 2, and Layer 3 including the key role in automation and orchestration.
