Northern Tier Update
Time 07/22/08 10:30AM-10:55AM
The Northern Tier is a regional network consortium attempting to provide robust research network connections for the educational institutions in the northwestern two-thirds of the United States. In addition the initiative will create a national backbone route from Chicago to Seattle across the Northern Tier, providing additional robustness for the national backbones.
This session will provide background on the initiative started in 2003, and an update on the significant progress being made toward its goals.
