    Higher education needs
    Moving the public Internet to the next level
  • 4. What is Internet2 ?
    • Internet2 is a not-for-profit consortium, led by over 220 US universities, developing and deploying advanced network applications and technology, accelerating the creation of tomorrow's Internet, since 1996.
    • 5. Provides a high-performance network environment for the US research and education community. Optimized to meet the needs of research, teaching, learning, clinical and outreach missions of that community.
    • 6. An organization that serves academic and technology needs at all levels of education
    • 7. A venue that brings together academics and scientists from all over the world.
    • 8. Develops high speed data transfer applications
    • 9. Enables the development and deployment of new network, middleware and applications technologies, services and protocols
    • 10. Close collaborations with government: NIH, NSF, NLM, NASA, to name only a few.
    • 11. Primary purpose is to help education.
  • In the 90’s the Internet gained in public recognition and popularity.
    Universities were among the first institutions to outgrow the Internet's bandwidth limitations because of the data transfer requirements
    Some universities wanted to support high-performance applications like data mining, medical imaging and particle physics.
    This resulted in the creation of the very-high-performance Backbone Network Service, or vBNS, developed in 1995 by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and MCI, specifically to meet the needs of the supercomputers at educational institutions.
    The concept of the “next-generation Internet” was born.
    The Internet2 Project was originally established by 34 university researchers in 1996 .
    The Internet2 consortium administrative headquarters is located in Ann Arbor, Michigan, with offices in Washington, D.C.
    The Internet2 community, in partnership with Qwest, built the first Internet2 Network, called Abilene.
    In 2006, Internet2 announced a partnership with Level 3 Communications to launch a brand new nationwide network, boosting its capacity from 10 Gbit/s to 100 Gbit/s.
    In October, 2007, Internet2 officially retired Abilene and now refers to its new, higher capacity network as the Internet2 Network.
