Federal Funding for UF Network Infrastructure


In 2012, a team of UF researchers led by Dr. Erik Deumens was awarded a research grant of $385,405 by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The project is one of the crucial building blocks in a comprehensive strategy to create a highly functional cyber-infrastructure for researchers at UF and their collaborators in the state, the nation, and the world. The award funds the equipment for the newly built 100 GigE Internet2 network enabling 100Gig connection to Florida LambdaRail (FLR). It benefits several on-going large scale projects, such as the Compact Muon Solenoid experiment at the Large Hadron Collider, the Agricultural Model Inter-comparison and Improvement Project, and the Integrated Digitized Biocollection.
