  11. 11. Primary purpose is to help education.</li></li></ul><li>In the 90’s the Internet gained in public recognition and popularity.<br />Universities were among the first institutions to outgrow the Internet's bandwidth limitations because of the data transfer requirements<br />Some universities wanted to support high-performance applications like data mining, medical imaging and particle physics. <br />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. <br />The concept of the “next-generation Internet” was born.<br />The Internet2 Project was originally established by 34 university researchers in 1996 .<br />The Internet2 consortium administrative headquarters is located in Ann Arbor, Michigan, with offices in Washington, D.C.<br />The Internet2 community, in partnership with Qwest, built the first Internet2 Network, called Abilene.<br />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.<br />In October, 2007, Internet2 officially retired Abilene and now refers to its new, higher capacity network as the Internet2 Network.<br />History of Internet2<br />
  12. 12. Timeline<br />October 1, 1996 – Internet2 is launched<br />1997- Inernet2 goes international when Canada joins, and cooperate when Cisco joins.<br />2000- Internet2 member achieve 831 Mbps of data from Redmond, Washington to Arlington, Virginia in under 82 seconds.<br />2006 – internet2 celebrates its 10 years with 200 U.S. universities ,70 leading corporations, 45 govt. agencies, 50 international partners.<br />
  13. 13. Why Internet2?<br />Real-time access to remote resources<br />Large-scale multi-site computation and data mining<br />Interactive collaboration <br />Rich, multi-media digital libraries<br />Shared virtual reality<br />Accelerating the creation of tomorrow's Internet<br />7<br />
