Network Nebraska - Internet2/SEGP
Internet2 is a nationwide high-speed network designed for research and educational purposes.
"Internet2 represents the next chapter in telecommunications for Nebraska schools," stated then Lt. Gov. Heineman, now Gov. Heineman and chair of the Nebraska Information Technology Commission (NITC) said, "The collaborative projects and wide array of resources that are available through this high speed educational network are astounding. We look forward to Nebraska students sharing information and participating in nationwide and even worldwide video-conferences with other schools, colleges, museums, and science centers."
With the adoption of Legislative Bill 1208, Network Nebraska will be working to close achievement gaps to all areas of the state by enabling essential education coursework on site or through distance learning programs by the use of high speed education networking.
The Internet2 network is a controlled access system led by more than 200 research universities in partnership with industry and government. The primary goal of Internet2 is to create a leading edge network for the national research and education communities.
