Network Infrastructure Owned by the Research and Education Community: Advancing Research, Science, and Education Worldwide

Thursday, January 1, 2004

Abstract

Around the world, members of the research and education community are increasingly owning and controlling their own network infrastructure on regional, national, and even international scales. This movement holds the potential to fundamentally change how networking is used and developed in higher education, as well as in the broader networking community. Emerging applications in geosciences, biosciences, and network research are already exploring the new capabilities the owned networking infrastructures provide.

Tom West is CEO of National LambdaRail (NLR), a major initiative that has deployed a unique nationwide network infrastructure owned and controlled by the U.S. research community. He will provide a bird's-eye report on and understanding of this rapidly growing movement and its implications for advancing research, science, and education
