Advance your Imagination! Submissions Now Being Accepted for Internet2 IDEA Awards; Awards To Recognize Revolutionary Uses of Advanced Networking
Ann Arbor, Michigan - November 19, 2007 - Submissions for the 2008 round of the Internet2 IDEA Awards are now being accepted. Open to existing or proposed applications, the Internet2 IDEA awards are designed to showcase Internet2 member projects that apply the latest in advanced networking capabilities to enable transformational progress in research, to enhance teaching and learning, and to potentially increase the impact of next-generation networks around the world.
New this year is the "Wave of the Future" category for advanced applications that specifically require or make use of a dedicated optical circuit with capacities up to 10 gigabits per second (Gbps). The winning application in this category will receive a dedicated, point-to-point optical circuit of up to 10 Gbps, sponsored by Level 3 Communications, on the new Internet2 network infrastructure between two connector sites for a one year period. The circuit will be provided specifically to support and enable the award-winning project.
Additional information, submissions guidelines and online application can be found at this link: http://www.internet2.edu/idea/
Deadline for submissions is January 7, 2008. Winners will be announced at the Internet2 Spring Member Meeting in late April 2008.
