The university and the state, working closely with Internet2, are now in a unique position to continue pushing the very frontiers of advanced research networks."
IU formed the GlobalNOC in 1998 to provide 24-hour network operations for the first national research and education network - Internet2. Engineering and operations from the GlobalNOC were again used to complete the new 100 gigabit Ethernet (GE) technology. With its launch last fall the Internet2 Network became the first 100GE open, national-scale Software-Defined Network (SDN) that employs OpenFlow standards. GlobalNOC's Service Desk, Network Engineering, and Software and Systems teams support the new network and these teams ensure reliability, performance, and advanced capabilities for Internet2 and more than 20 additional projects.
The new network is the cornerstone of the Internet2 Innovation Platform (http://www.internet2.edu/network/#innovation) - a bundling of next-generation technologies. Members are adopting the new technologies to spur scientific discovery and drive competitiveness. Innovation Platform adopters now number more than 40 Internet2 member institutions and regional networks (http://internet2.edu/pubs/InnovationCampuses.pdf), with
