Regional Collaboration CC*IIE Awardees

In 2014, the National Science Foundation included an area to support regional collaboration awards as part of its CC*IIE solicitation. From this solicitation, 5 regional collaboration grants were awarded. Working with these five (5) regional network collaboration awardees, each of the projects share mutual goals to to collaborate and inform, and collect and distribute materials that have been developed in the course of their work.

These five projects are described below. Links to events, workshop, seminar archives, and other materials are provided.

Front Range GigaPoP
Marla Meehl (Principal Investigator)

Colorado State University, the Idaho Regional Optical Network, the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research, the University of Colorado Boulder, and the University of Utah have partnered proactively to train and mentor faculty and staf from smaller institutions in the region of Colorado, New Mexico, Idaho, Utah and Wyoming in an effort to drive adoption and expansion of advanced networking and CI technologies.

Great Plains Network
Greg Monaco (Principal Investigator)

The purpose of this project is to build a long-term, scalable and enduring partnership among small, medium and large institutions of higher education and state and regional networks in Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma and South Dakota that will, ultimately, serve to improve campus network knowledge, expertise and research cyberinfrastructure through a program of outreach, training and engagement.

Wendy Huntoon (Principal Investigator)

Abstract: KINBER’s project will be implemented through four basic activities: workshops, campus visits, broader dissemination, and a PA-based perfSONAR mesh. Two types of workshops will be offered: Campus Cyberinfrastructure workshops, focusing on a fundamental set campus cyberinfrastructure technologies; and, perfSONAR Workshops, focused specifically on the deployment of perfSONAR platforms within the campus environment.

Upgrading Campus Cyberinfrastructure – An Introduction to the Science DMZ Architecture

Paul Schopis
(Principal Investigator)

OARnet is convening a forum for regional stakeholders to articulate needs, solutions and best practices via a workshop series. In addition, OARnet is providing technical engagement and knowledge exchange directly with stakeholders and is developing the “human network” of support amongst the stakeholders. OARnet is also deploying perfSonar widely throughout the Ohio Academic Resources Network (OARnet) infrastructure, for highly granular data collection.

The Southern Partnership in Advanced Networking (SPAN)
James von Oehsen (Principal Investigator)

The Southern Partnership in Advanced Networking (SPAN) is a partnership between Clemson University, South Carolina State University, Georgia State University, and the University of Georgia that is building a regional community of practitioners across the South that supports next-generation networking. In collaboration with the Southern Crossroads initiative, Internet2, and ESnet, SPAN offers a program of workshops, site visits, and best practices documentation to administrators, campus IT groups, and researchers at institutions across the South that includes hands-on training, expert presentations, and in situ recommendations on topics such as network upgrades and cybersecurity to assist in the development and deployment of their own Campus Cyberinfrastructure Plans.
