UD network infrastructure upgrades support data-hungry research

The University of Delaware’s networking infrastructure is getting an upgrade and it is coming just in time.

As UD builds major research initiatives focused on biotechnology, energy, biopharmaceuticals and data science, among others, the need for advanced cyberinfrastructure to support researchers, faculty and students working in these areas becomes increasingly critical.

While existing teaching, learning and operational needs are well supported through UD’s present cyberinfrastructure, current and emerging research needs related to data creation, transfer, archival and analysis are outpacing UD’s Internet connection and bandwidth capacity.

The project, funded through a $447,089 grant from the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Office of Advanced Cyberinfrastructure (OAC), will expand UD’s network connection to the Internet2 Network and create specific networking configurations to enable researchers to access new high-bandwidth capabilities.
