Network Effect Enabling Research


Benefits
 NLRs network now provides the infrastructure for its 525 schools and universities and four major federal agencies to connect via Cisco TelePresence, thereby enabling an in person experience for researchers across the US

NLR is the ideal platform to drive deployment of innovative collaboration tools like Ciscos Telepresence meeting. We are excited about the opportunity to leverage an out-of-the-box solution to further engage researchers and provide them with critical network services to make their research visions reality.

NLR and TelePresence




Through NLR it is possible to get NREN connectivity to Europe, Asia, Latin America, Middle East & Africa for future TelePresence units at Research Universities via GLIF (on a hand shake = at no cost) NLR can be connected to other TelePresence service providers to enable inter-company (intercommunity) TelePresence connectivity TelePresence is a natural for distance learning but it has the potential to play an even larger roll in academic research collaboration
