Internet2 is continuing the work towards building a nationwide cyber-instrument to support scientists with data intensive networking needs in the campus environment.

Providing hardware and software to Campuses/Regional Networks to encourage adoption of dynamic networks, end to end monitoring, and next generation data movement tools is well underway amongst the 50+ designated nationwide sites in the phased approach – Groups A, B, and C.

  • “Group A”, the first set of Non-PI sites, was started in Spring of 2011 and was complete in Summer of 2011.  Testing and modifications to these sites continued throughout the remainder of 2011.
  • “Group B”, the second set of sites, were initiated in Summer of 2011 and will complete this winter, as testing and modifications are ramping up currently.
  • “Group C”, the last group of original applications, began in late fall of 2011 and will stretch into the Winter and Spring of 2012.  Supplemental applications have been accepted for several sites, and will be deployed after the initial groups.  Additional applications for end sites are still being accepted. Contact the project team at the email addresses below for more information about becoming an end site.  
Additionally, if you are attending the Winter 2012 ESCC/Internet2 Joint Techs Meeting, catch the latest updates about this project at The DYNES Bof, and stay tuned for continuing updates here.
