A Vision for the Network

This white paper, which was contributed by the Net@EDU Broadband Pricing Group, provides a vision of higher education's evolving networking needs over the next five to ten years. Articulating the role of research and education networks in our society, it explores the drivers, challenges and policy issues in deploying said networks, and the need for our community to partner with all levels of government in helping to define and achieve national networking goals.
