The University of Connecticut announced that it is connected a new 100-Gbps fiber optic link, giving faculty an imporved ability to collaborate with other researchers around the workd on data-intensive research projects. The new link is managed by the Connecticut Education Network. The central hub will connect both UConn’s main campus in Storrs and the UConn Health Center in Farmington to Internet2 via 100G fiber running through CEN. “The robust CEN-Internet2 network expands the boundaries of science that researchers can explore,” says Jeff Seemann, vice president for research at UConn.
