Education Network Launched

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Abilene, a nationwide Internet2® network, today announced state education networks in Michigan, Missouri, Oregon, Virginia and Washington will establish connectivity under a new policy that allows expanded access to the high-performance educational backbone. Partnerships with Internet2 universities and regional networking organizations will provide institutions such as elementary schools, secondary schools, community colleges, museums and libraries access to the national high-performance network.

“Expanded access to Abilene supports the primary Internet2 goal of facilitating the rapid transfer of new network services and applications to the global Internet and especially the broader educational community,” said Douglas E. Van Houweling, president and CEO of the University Corporation for Advanced Internet Development, the organization leading both the Internet2 and Abilene projects.
