The next-generation of tokamaks, ITER (International Thermonuclear Text Reactor) or BPX (Burning Plasma Experiment), will be characterized by an even greater emphasis on joint operation and experimentation. Preparations are being made for such shared facilities by developing a systematic approach to remote, joint physics operation involving experimental teams at several locations. The local area network of computers used for control and data acquisition on present and future experiments can be extended over a wide area network to provide a mechanism for remote operation of subsystems required for physics experiments. The technology required for high-bandwidth (⩾45-Mb/s) connections between multiple sites either exists or will be available over the next few years. With the rapid development of high-performance workstations, network interfaces, distributed computing, and video conferencing, one can proceed with the development of a system of control and analysis sites to provide for consistent, efficient, and continuing collaborations. Early establishment of such sites could also enhance existing joint design and development efforts
