Internet2 has gone nationwide.
At its annual fall member meeting this month, the nonprofit advanced network consortium announced that it had completed its new nationwide network infrastructure, which has an initial capacity of 100Gbps and bandwidth-on-demand capabilities.
One key part of Internet2's new infrastructure is its Dynamic Circuit Network (DCN), which will allow researchers to appropriate as much as 10Gbps of dedicated bandwidth on demand. According to Internet2, the DCN features 10 10Gbps links that are provisioned on each network segment, and can be scaled up to 100Gbps, depending on network demands.
