Catalyzing gigabit apps for learning and workforce development

researchers looking at 3-D images of ancient Egypt Wonder how we'll be using the Internet in five to 10 years? Take a look at Kansas City and Chattanooga, where experiments in high-speed networking are taking shape. Today's Internet networks typically move data at a few to a few hundred megabits per second. However, next-generation networks can carry traffic at greater than a gigabit per second--a speed-up of ten to a hundred times. These gigabit networks have incredible potential, but require applications (apps) that can take ... More at http://www.nsf.gov/news/news_summ.jsp?cntn_id=130401&WT.mc_id=USNSF_51&WT.mc_ev=click
