Developments in ICT usage in higher education and research demand new services and functionality, for which adjustments in ICT infrastructure are necessary. SURFnet 6, the result of the Gigaport Next Generation project, has been developed according to a concept that closely corresponds to such developments and that offers revolutionary possibilities. In order to optimally profit from these possibilities, it is necessary to adjust the campus infrastructure of the connected institutions. This report describes a vision on the developments, the way SURFnet services reacts to this and, finally, what the consequences are for campus infrastructure. The report was composed by Stratix on behalf of SURFnet and the Gigaport User Board. Editorial work on this document has performed by board members of the Gigaport User Board, drs. P.J Schelleman MBA, Ir. G.J.T.A. Bakx and drs. R.F. Janz.
