Internet2 is a consortium of 205 universities working in partnership
with industry and government to develop and deploy advanced network applications
and technologies, accelerating the creation of tomorrow's Internet. Penn
was a founding member of Internet2 and continues to lead applications,
research and education using Internet2. Internet2 is recreating the partnership
among academia, industry and government that fostered today's Internet
in its infancy. The primary goals of Internet2 are to:
- Create a leading edge network capability for the national research
- Enable revolutionary Internet applications
- Ensure the rapid transfer of new network services and applications
to the broader Internet community.
