Cost Effective Networking using Metro WDM

Session Abstract

This session is a joint Session between Ekinops and the University of Nebraska. This session provides an overview of the solution used by the University of Nebraska to aggregate 200 Terabytes of data weekly onto the Internet 2 backbone. After looking at many other potential solutions, the University of Neraska determined that building their own network provided for the greatest flexibility in increasing their bandwidth and was extremely affordable. This solution allowed the University of Nebraska to cost effectively transport this massive amount of data in order to enhance its participation in CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research).
