Research and Education Networks

National and regional research and education networks are strategic assets that bolster economic competitiveness and are also a showcase of high tech excellence. They must support a broad range of applications – like ultra-fast high-performance computing collaboration, classroom teleconferencing, special links with virtually zero latency, as well as researching and exhibiting next generation networking technologies themselves. Enabling high performance and agile collaboration.
