End to end services for scientific research

Network services provided by NRENs today are more advanced than ever. However, user needs are not always met, and many available services do not attract users. This problem is primarily due to organizational issues rather than technical ones. The involvement of many network actors in providing network services from end to end implies closer collaboration between those actors. In this paper, we explore practical ways to enhance network service accessibility for users by adapting the corresponding service model.
