    22 
    3 An NDG service for deliverying data files and CSML instances.  See [wiki:T05_Delivery]. 
     3The !DeliveryService is meant to fulfil both the requirements of users to download data and of data centres to move data between themselves.  It is based on the FTP-like protocol [wiki:bbFTP] and has been extended to use python for authentication, authorisation and control using the PyBbftp layer.

     5The key advantages over FTP will be: 
     6 
     7  1. High bandwidth delivery (TCP big window and multi-stream capabilities). 
     8  1. NDG security aware, including a SSL/TLS encrypted control connection. 
     9  1. Transparent delivery of CSML instances (CSML + underlying data). 
     10  1. External monitoring of downloads in progress.  That is you can get at the status of your download.
