Session Abstract

The Ignite public-private partnership intends to accelerate the development of gigabit applications for America by breaking a fundamental deadlock: there is little investment in advanced applications that could take advantage of advanced infrastructure because such infrastructure isn't yet widely deployed. And conversely, there is little new investment in advanced infrastructure because there are few advanced applications to justify it.
U.S Ignite will break this deadlock by providing incentives for imagining, prototyping, and developing advanced applications. Ignite will also stitch together islands of advanced infrastructure into a national testbed for the new applications.

U.S. Ignite is an initiative of the Office of Science and Technology Policy, the National Science Foundation, BBN, and participating partnership organizations.
