I wanted to share some photographs of the fully assembled Internet2 POP mockup that's on display in the hallway of the Internet2 Spring Member Meeting. We finished the build around 11PM last night, so we were ready to go this morning when the conference officially began. We've been getting a steady stream of attendees popping in to see what all the fan noise is about. They're asking fantastic questions and learning a bit about what it means to light a nation-wide footprint with 8.8Tbps of optical capacity.

A huge amount of thanks go to the engineers at the Internet2 NOC, Ciena, and Juniper for making this all come together.
