High Speed Network @ Georgia State University

Hotline to vBNS

Hotline to Internet 2

Today's university is defined by the quality of the intra-campus and wide-area network. These networks provide the students, faculty and staff with the communications fabric required to accomplish their day-to-day and strategic goals.

Georgia State University is committed to supplying its community with a local network that is robust, scalable and stable. To reach this commitment, a three year project is beginning to dramatically upgrade the network connectivity to every building and to every desktop.

The importance of the wide-area network to research and educational initiatives is demonstrated through Georgia State's involvement with the vBNS network and with the Internet2 Project. Both of these endeavors requires commitment on behalf of the entire institution, to develop and utilize those applications that flourish on high-speed, low-latency networks.
