Session Abstract

This panel session will highlight the technology challenges and solutions of three R&E networks as they expand their capabilities to support additional services, research initiatives and community anchor institutions:

Its focus is to expand its R&E backbone network to include the two-year community colleges throughout Arkansas, as well as over 400 healthcare institutions statewide belonging to the Arkansas Telehealth Network.

RNP, the National Education & Research Network of Brazil, is migrating to a hybrid architecture and rolling out a dynamic circuit service, which will interoperate with Internet2
