Encouraging Advancements and Collaboration Through Superior Network Infrastructure

Time 10/07/09 08:45AM-10:00AM

Session Abstract

From the farthest reaches of outer space to the inner recesses of the human body, doctors and scientists are collecting more data and obtaining higher resolution images than ever before. In Michigan, the Michigan Lamdarail (MiLR), a consortium between University of Michigan (UM), Michigan State University (MSU) and Wayne State University (WSU), built on ADVA Optical Networking solutions. MiLR selected Merit Network, Inc., of which UM, MSU, and WSU are the founding members to maintain and manage the MiLR infrastructure. The MiLR Infrastructure is providing the connectivity researchers and educators need to aggregate, interpret and transmit the immense amounts of information their work requires. Major projects currently benefiting from MiLR
