  Imagine the ILC is up and running. Electrons and positrons collide happily, and scientists are taking data. Suddenly there's a problem with one of the laser wires. All experts are at a meeting on a different continent, but the problem needs to be fixed immediately. Difficult? Not when there's a Global Accelerator Network Multipurpose Virtual Lab (GANMVL) in place. High-speed, high-resolution cameras would allow the faraway experts to look at the fault, a web-based portal would let them access the controls and tools of the system with a simple "single-sign-on" procedure. However, the virtual lab is not just about remote operation. In principle it is already possible to run a control room remotely. This system is radically different in that it takes into account the human aspect of teamwork around the world. The implications of a working virtual control room are enormous. It might revolutionise virtual collaboration in completely different areas. The paper presents the GANMVL tool and the results of the evaluation of the Virtual Lab in production environment and real operations.
