Comment: Lambda - the ultimate network (Score 2, Interesting) 44

by Simon Spero (#18409179) Attached to: Internet2 and National LambdaRail To Merge
SunSITE/iBiblio has been connected to the National Lambda Rail since moving to the MCNC data centre;

In addition to giving warp speed access to research sites, the National Rail also allows traffic for the regular Internet to be routed via providers in Atlanta at much local cost than could be obtained directly from North Carolina, making it possible for iBiblio to increase the amount of bandwidth to commercial sites to 1/2Gbps.

When NLR and Abeline combine there networks far more campuses will be able to get to iBiblio without having to bother the real world.
