Regional Collaboration Spawns CC-NIE/CC*IIE Success

Session Abstract

Ohio's higher education institutions and regional network (OARnet) share a long history of collaboration and innovation. Much of this simply has been the ability of campuses to leverage the aggregation platform that OARnet provides to the region. Specifically, OARnet connects the universities across Ohio to each other, for regional collaboration, and to Internet2 for national and international collaboration. One of the more recent innovations is the OARnet provided 100Gbps network – the nation’s first statewide deployment for the expressed purpose of incenting research, innovation and economic development. Equally important to the success of the 100Gbps OARnet backbone has been the relationships built up into meaningful collaborations. Case Western Reserve University, Ohio State University, University of Dayton, University of Cincinnati and OARnet have won CC-NIE/CC*IIE awards. This was accomplished through mutual support that not only benefits the recipient, but “raises the bottom” for the entire Ohio community both directly and indirectly.

This presentation examines the individual projects and how they form a much more robust environment enhancing collaboration and benefitting the community at large. We will share details on the aspects of our NSF CC-NIE/CC*IIE proposals that were most compelling to the reviewers as well as identifying some key revisions we made to our earlier drafts that helped us avoid critical pitfalls -particularly in crafting our proposal rationales and deployment strategies. Finally, we will summarize how we incorporated our state-wide collaboration into our projects to better position us for the awards as well as how we leveraged our technology teams to support our cross-state efforts.
