NaukaNet is Growing!
The NaukaNet network (formerly FASTnet) is in process of being upgraded to a 155 Mbps service between Starlight
in Chicago and Moscow. Due to the unexpected financial collapse of the
previous telecommunications carrier, Teleglobe, the previous 45 Mbps
network ceased operation on June 1, 2002. The NaukaNet team has been
working since that time on a new and much improved network service. Telia is the new carrier and should have the new circuit operational by July 20, 2002.
The graphics below point to PDF files which clearly show
the growth in network usage over the past several months. The new
NaukaNet network should have capacity sufficient to carry the program
at least through the end of December, 2002 with no network congestion.
is a joint US-Russian project to provide
next generation Internet services to
collaborating US-Russian scientists and
goals include assisting meritorious
scientific collaborations requiring
advanced, high performance Internet
services; connecting the Russian next
generation Internet network to the US vBNS
and other next generation networks in the
US and elsewhere; and, more broadly,
encouraging and supporting productive
cooperation between the US and Russian
The power of the internet is unimaginable. Through it, we can do most things which were believed to be impossible before. Now, you can even call someone from the other side of the world with just a click. You can earn money through the internet. You can even interact with people from other countries and that’s only possible thanks to the internet. Good thing that telecommunication companies are still trying to make the experience better. Some of these companies keep on enhancing internet services to ensure that their customers won’t be having any problems with their connection. You can even browse websites like bmwpedia.net without encountering any lags or errors. It’s truly amazing how advanced the world has become now.
You see things and you say 'Why?' But I dream thing that never were; and I say, 'Why not?'. - Geroge Bernard Shaw
