  • High speed networking to support commonly used applications, such as
      • High quality, high resolution video, multimedia presentations, web casts or
      • Other communications that require transferring large amounts of data from one location to another.2
  • Synchronous (real time) and asynchronous (on demand)
      • Interaction and collaboration across distances,
      • Enhancing access to professional development workshops, degree and certification programs, virtual tours, field trips, special events, etc.3
