Indiana launches new ultra-high-speed network http://ovpitnews.iu.edu/news/page/normal/21069.html Tue, 31 Jan 2012 03:16:00 EST Indiana is the first state to launch a high-speed 100-gigabits-per-second (Gbps) network link dedicated to research and education. The new network, named Monon100, is 10 times faster than the current network link. With it, scientists and medical researchers will be able to rapidly share the massive amounts of data created by modern digital instruments such as gene sequencers, powerful microscopes or the Large Hadron Collider.
