MCNC Completes First Phase of Golden LEAF Rural Broadband Initiative

By admin, April 30, 2012 7:50 pm

MCNC recently confirmed that the initial round of the $144-million Golden LEAF Rural Broadband Initiative (GLRBI) has been officially completed. Working with FRC LLC, its first-phase commercial partner who contributed $4 million into the project, fiber is now officially available to serve commercial businesses and last-mile consumer broadband needs in western and southeastern North Carolina.

All broadband fiber associated with this first phase of the project has gone live and is already providing service to Community Anchor Institutions (CAIs)  such as universities, community colleges, healthcare facilities, K-12 schools, public health facilities, libraries, research institutions, along with other sectors of CAIs in North Carolina.

“This first phase of the project already is having a positive impact on student learning, patient outcomes in health care, economic outcomes in job creation and community development, and is accelerating innovation and research all across the state,” said Joe Freddoso, President and CEO at MCNC. “Our goal is to continue creating infrastructure that meets the advanced needs of research, education and health care while stabilizing costs to consumers and small businesses in areas where affordable broadband currently isn’t available.”

The GLRBI receives significant funding in the form of private donations and investments, as well as through grants from U.S. Department of Commerce’s Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP). The GLRBI had earlier received a $24 million private investment from the Golden LEAF Foundation.

When the second phase of the project is completed, the GLRBI will have widened the reach and capacity of the North Carolina Research and Education Network (NCREN) in the state.

“In carrying out its three-part mission of teaching, research and outreach, the University of North Carolina is increasingly reliant on technology and broadband infrastructure,” said Mike Murphy, Chairman of the MCNC Board of Directors. “These critical upgrades and the expansion of the North Carolina Research and Education Network will help ensure that our UNC campuses have the digital infrastructure required to scale to our future needs. Every sector of education in the state will benefit from this important investment.”

In June 2011, federal approval was given to MCNC to begin the second phase of the GLRBI. MCNC has since mobilized efforts and made major progress on this portion of the project, which is estimated to be thrice the size of the first phase.

AboveNet Selects ‘Virtual Meet Me Room’ Ethernet Platform From Ancotel

By admin, April 30, 2012 11:26 am

AboveNet communications, a leading provider of high bandwidth connectivity, recently announced in a press release that it has selected ‘virtual meet me room’ (vmmr) Ethernet platform from ancotel GmbH, Europe’s leading network neutral interconnection company. According to the officials from AboveNet, the vmmr platform will be deployed in Frankfurt and will help the company further improve its Ethernet services.

AboveNet provides simple, efficient and physically secure managed optical Ethernet via fiber, which transparently and easily connects the LANs. The services are delivered via dedicated fiber tails from core network and ensure high quality bandwidth delivery. The company minimizes or eliminates the clutter of other connectivity solutions by connecting the enterprise metro location via its Ethernet service.

“Carrier Ethernet is fast changing the game,” said Brett Johnson, vice president of Business Development for AboveNet Europe, in a statement. “We began in the early 90s providing fiber optic infrastructure for carriers, but as enterprises and government departments increasingly adopt Ethernet the potential market for our level of service has vastly expanded. Ancotel’s customers will gain a competitive advantage from this partnership and we will benefit from their customers’ significant global coverage.”

Ancotel’s private optical network delivers key network and IP services in and between top U.S. and European markets. Even stars on one hand endow representatives of horoscope for gemini zodiac sign with inconstancy of intentions, on the other hand, fate perpetually sends them probations, having surmounted which horoscope for gemini finally acquires stubbornness and purposefulness.. The group’s carrierlist consists of over 400 top-name clients. Its international network includes cooperation with strong business partners and memberships of authoritative associations and forums.

“Bandwidth, reliability, latency and other critical factors must be optimal for applications such as private cloud, business continuity and disaster recovery,” explained Frank Orlowski, vice president of ancotel (News – Alert). “AboveNet has built its reputation as a high performance provider to the most demanding markets. Access via our Frankfurt hub means that world class services, including global and local networks, cloud computing platforms, Internet services and more can now be interconnected in minutes by our engineers, without the planning and cable installation delays. It’s a prestigious addition to our service provider customer offerings, and a great opportunity for their clients to build reliable, high-bandwidth enterprise networks that guarantee optimal performance.”

University of Arizona to Research Electro-optical Effect on Lightwave’s Perkinamine Indigo

By admin, April 26, 2012 12:25 pm

Lightwave Logic, Inc. recently announced the University of Arizona will continue with its research on the electro-optical effect on its Perkinamine Indigo, which was found to be higher than 250 picometers per volt at 1550-nanometers when leveraging the conventional Teng-Man testing protocol.

Initial recordings were taken during demonstrations conducted at the University of Colorado and Photon-X.

“We’ll continue to test Perkinamine Indigo using the standard Teng-Man method at Photon-X and CU Boulder with promising results,” said Jim Marcelli, CEO at Lightwave Logics. “Our internal development effort on the balance of our Perkinamine family of chromophores is moving forward as planned. We continue to work with our major microelectronics company and large system supplier through the continued testing.”

The company is currently working on the development of advanced Non Linear Optical Polymer Materials Platform for high speed fiber-optic data communications and optical computing applications. The research at the University of Arizona will continue to prove the validity of the results demonstrated at the University of Colorado and Photon-X.  

“While Dr. Norwood’s group attempted to utilize the existing material samples in order to have a direct comparison with earlier measurements, these were not compatible with the technical specifications of the new Arizona testing procedure,” said Dr. Louis Glasgow, Lightwave’s Chief Technology Officer. “We have agreed to reconfigure the material and provide them new samples that will satisfy their new testing protocol. We anticipate that this may take us at least one month to complete. We are continuing our effort to deepen our understanding of Perkinamine Indigo’s unusual properties to further our general effort to commercialize devices built around our entire family of advanced organic nonlinear optical polymers. casino spiele .”

During initial measurements, the University Of Arizona College of Optical Sciences recorded interesting effects, and is keen on pursuing further research to gain a better understanding of the origin of Perkinamine Indigo’s response.

The University specifically wants to research the electro-optic coefficient r13 and the piezoelectric coefficient d33, which will allow it to determine the effects of electro-optic coefficient r33. In order to do this, new material samples will need to realign to make it more receptive to the University’s technical needs, as per their Mach-Zehnder interferometry test method.
