Nebraska's university network to off campus sites (Frame Relay System) has not been materially improved in several years.Over half our sites are still connecting via dialup modems. Another 30 sites have been locked at 56KB frame relay speeds, and in major facilities located at Scottsbluff, North Platte, Norfolk we are serving hundreds of staff members and their research missions with frame relay lines at the woefully slow speed of 768KB ... shared bandwidth.Improved Statewide networking has been identified as a priority in all NU Integrated Technology plans, submitted to the state since 1996.Improved Statewide networking has been identified as a priority by the President and all Chancellors.Provides a foundation for future consolidationVoice, Video and DataTelecommunicationsManagementComputingAcademicAdministrativeThe network improvements and investments we are making today at the University would provide the University and the citizens of the State of Nebraska with access to:Bio-terrorism information and educationHomeland SecurityThe highest quality most effective instructional experiences, Library services, Student services, and teacher resources regardless of location or time University administrative support services.
