High performance research networks continue to drive fundamental science and innovation. There are many layers of a research network that must be considered in order to be successful in achieving these goals. This panel will begin by describing the architecture of the external connectivity to Research and Education (R&E) networks provided by OFCnet. It will also discuss topics like data transfer for data intensive science, detailed monitoring of science flows within the network, and applications like distributed computing that take advantage of these networks. Finally we will discuss ways in which the R&E community can become more involved in OFC and OFCnet for 2024 and beyond.
