  • Internet 2 The Bottom Line Basics Internet2
  • Let’s Start With What You Know

  • The Internet Backbone
    • The “backbone” of the Internet is a series of high capacity cables connecting key cities across the world
  • Traffic map
  • Internet2 Backbone
    • A “private”, VERY high speed network
    • Access limited to only 32 providers
    • FAR fewer sites
    MAGPI is OUR Internet2 provider
  • Another view of the Abeline Network
  • Perspective
    • Internet backbone = 45 to 155 Mbps (Million bits per second)
    • Abeline backbone = 100 Gbps (Gigabits per second, or 100 Billion bits per second)
    • Perspective:
        • 1 million seconds = 11.574 days
          • 1,000,000/60/60/24
        • 1 billion seconds = 31.7 YEARS!
          • 11.574 days*1000/365
        • 1 trillion seconds – 317 CENTURIES!
