HPWREN Collaborates with UCSD ACT for Wireless Connectivity at 2002 CENIC Conference
For the second year in a row, the HPWREN team worked with UCSD Administrative Computing, and Telecommunication Services (ACT) to provide the Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California (CENIC) annual conference with wireless connectivity. Additional collaborators in the activity included UCSD Media Services and Cisco Systems.
The connection encompassed a temporary three-day link from the San Diego Supercomputer Center to Mount Soledad to Paradise Point, which was the location of this year's CENIC 2002 CalREN - Catalyze,
The 45 Mbps wireless link provided CENIC 2002 participants with Internet access, including web, email and an ability to conduct an IP video/audio conference with Internet2 2002 participants in Arlington, Virginia. "We used Polycom equipment for the video/audio conference and utilized about 15Mbps," said Jim Hale, who organized the HPWREN connection for CENIC. "Overall, we were pleased with both the connection and video/audio performance - the participants were pleased as well."
