FLR reveals plans for the Atlantic Research Platform

FLR’s 100G research and education network provides world class, highly reliable, cost effective, ultra-high speed and secure networking connectivity and capacity to enhance research & education. On September 14, 2015, FLR became the 3rd Regional Optical Network in the nation to upgrade its entire core network to 100-Gbps. Shortly thereafter, on November 18, 2015, FLR deployed a Regional Science DMZ to serve as the foundation for the Atlantic Research Platform (ARP). In turn, the ARP in Florida will serve as the platform to extend and interconnect Campus research, high-performance computing, and instructional technology environments to the Global research and education networking fabric.

FAU I-SENSE Lands $339,984 National Science Foundation Grant

Florida Atlantic University’s Institute for Sensing and Embedded Network Systems Engineering (I-SENSE) has received a $339,984 grant from the National Science Foundation for a “Research Experiences for Undergraduates” (REU) program. Focused on sensing and smart systems, FAU’s REU site is designed to engage high-potential undergraduates in meaningful research activities in order to encourage their pursuit of graduate study in STEM (science-technology-engineering-math) disciplines, with an emphasis on interdiSsciplinary career paths. Closely related to the Internet of Things, smart systems represent an emerging class of distributed systems that provide real-time awareness of conditions, trends, and patterns to support improved decision-making, and often, automated control.
