PRINCETON UNIVERSITY TO HOST NEW JERSEY’S FIRST INTERNET2 GIGAPOP ACCESS POINT

Princeton University, in conjunction with NJ Edge and Rutgers University, will create New Jersey’s first Internet2 GigaPOP access point, said Jay Dominick, Princeton CIO and VP for Information Technology, at the EdgeCon conference earlier this month.

The Internet2 GigaPOP is the first in-state connection to the national and global research infrastructure. Internet2 is the nation’s premier backbone for conducting research to support education and teaching, Dominick said. “With the creation of the GigaPOP, New Jersey will now have a top-tier state-wide network.”

The access point will be turned on in April this year.

Princeton’s been a member of NJ Edge for a long time, but with this move, it will finally become a connected member, Dominick said.

“It is our hope and desire that this network, as it expands through New Jersey, brings widespread, continual benefit to the entire population of New Jersey, and particularly the universities and community colleges.” The high-speed connectivity that this brings, “100 gigabits or plus ground speeds, and into the national infrastructure, will put New Jersey at the top of what state-wide networks are, and what they can be,” he added.

He noted that Samuel Conn of NJ Edge created an environment where Princeton could come together with its partners, Rutgers University and Internet2, to make this investment in the state of New Jersey.
