  Abstract:
  Internet2 is a consortium being led by over 180 universities working in partnership with industry and government to develop and deploy advanced network applications and technologies for tomorrow's Internet. The first basic principle of Internet2 is to ensure that Internet2 maintain an infrastructure flexible enough to work with current requirements, yet to be adaptable for future now-unknown needs and to provide a highway for higher bandwidth traffic using Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6). The second basic principle of Internet2 is built up in the strategy of affordable communication named "common bearer service", which means a model of communicating from one connected node to any other connected node. One of the ways to ensure bandwidth, and keep it affordable for the institutions involved, is to establish what has come to be known as a gigapop ("gigabit capacity point of presence"). More or less, Internet2 is going to look very similar to the current Internet-data viewed in a Web browser, but so far, it is strictly being used as a pipeline to transfer data. According to the University Corporation for Advanced Internet Development, the minimum period of complete implementation of Internet2 is 24 months. Experience told us that the average period of establishing Internet as an every day practice is about 3 years (like in Yugoslavia, for example) which leads us to conclude that approximately 5 years is needed to implement new technology such as Internet2 in middle developed countries. Oncology, as one of the most complex domains of medicine and because of that a great user of telemedicine, is the most acceptable for the new technology such as Internet2. There is no doubt, that oncology will find the fastest way to join the Internet2 user society.
