Session Abstract

As a follow-on to a session at the Spring, 2001 Member Meeting, we will highlight the leading regional and metropolitan area optical networking initiatives underway nationally. The discussion will focus on building new networks with DWDM and dark fiber, and approaches to partnering with vendors and others as a means to deploy economical, high-bandwidth connectivity for higher education. In particular, the Quilt's Regional Optical Networking initiative will be discussed at the outset. This session is the first of two devoted to this topic at this meeting; the second will occur on Thursday, 8:30-9:45 a.m. The two sessions are free standing and complementary.
