Internet2 Network is Ready to Roll

At its annual Fall Member Meeting, Internet2 announced the completion of its new nationwide network infrastructure. With an initial capacity of 100 Gigabits per second and bandwidth-on-demand capabilities, the new network will allow scientists and academic types to grab as much as 10 Gbps at a time. According to Rick Summerhill, Internet2’s chief technology officer:

Just like you switch on a light or turn on a water tap, we envision a future where researchers, scientists, faculty, artists, etc. will be able to ‘turn on’ a high capacity network connection when and where they need it.
