  • This Project Is Designing, Implementing, and Experimenting With Prototype Services and Capabilities That Have the Potential to Optimize Advanced Networks for Production Science Research, Particularly for Large-Scale Data Transport, Including Persistent, Ultra-Large-Capacity, Real-Time, Long-Duration Streams. These Experiments Are Being Conducted With Multiple National and International Partners.
  • Four Major Themes of This Initiative Are To Provide: (a) Large-Scale Network Capacity, Including Support For Extremely High-Volume Individual Data Streams, (b) Network Services and Resource Programmability For This Capacity, (c) Edge Access To These Capabilities, and (d) Exchange Facilities That Can Support These Services and Capabilities.
