Changing Roles of Regional Networks
Time 07/21/08 10:50AM-11:10AM
Regional Networks roles have traditionally been the "glue" that holds together the campus and national networks. Additionally RONs have taken on roles of making national network access available to other related research and healthcare entities. Another role and the focus of this presentation is the state mandating state agency use. This talk focuses on the Broadband Ohio initiative in which the Governor has mandated the use of the network by state agencies. It has created a situation where the client base is swelling from 90 colleges to several thousand agency offices. This presentation discusses how these operations and architectural changes will be addressed.
