North Carolina's Research Triangle To Land New Information Superhighway | Area Development Online

North Carolina's Research Triangle To Land New Information Superhighway | Area Development Online | Nicole Raimundo | Scoop.it
North Carolina’s Research Triangle hopes to gain an edge with high-speed connectivity. The NC Next Generation Network (NCNGN or “NC Engine”) is a local public-private initiative aimed at providing open access, ultra-high-speed bandwidth at affordable prices to both residents and businesses throughout the region. Currently, typical bandwidth connections in the area run at 10 to 20 megabits per second. The NCNGN initiative would expand that 100-fold by delivering a one-gigabit connection. “We want to make sure that our area is one of the leaders to keep us innovative and keep the reputation that we have for being a high-tech area of innovation,” says Marc Hoit, vice chancellor for information technology and CIO at North Carolina State University in Raleigh. NC State is one of four local universities that have banded together with the communities of Cary, Carrboro, Chapel Hill, Durham, Raleigh, and Winston-Salem to spearhead the initiative. University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Duke, and Wake Forest universities also are participating in NCNGN. Although the universities are already equipped with super-fast bandwidth at 10 gigabits, the institutions also recognize the advantages of expanding that high-speed connectivity to the broader community. Some of the key goals behind the project are to reduce the digital divide by improving access to resources, enhance work force knowledge and skills, and promote economic development. “I believe this technology will attract industry that relies upon high-speed Internet performance,” says Ruben Gonzales, business development administrator at the city of Winston-Salem. “This infrastructure improvement will also benefit our existing companies, and I believe will also help keep companies here — especially those compelled to upgrade their own capacity to keep up with advances in their industries.” Click headline to read more--
