Oklahoma has been awarded a National Science Foundation Campus Cyberinfrastructure - Network Infrastructure and Engineering (CC-NIE) networking grant.
This grant, the "OneOklahoma Friction Free Network (OFFN)," will deploy a "Science DMZ" dedicated research network shared by OU, Oklahoma State U, Langston U and the Tandy Supercomputing Center (part of the Oklahoma Innovation Institute and OneNet, Oklahoma's education, research and government network. OFFN will include a dedicated 10G circuit shared among the four institutions.
At OU, the collaboration is led by Information Technology and includes faculty in the College of Engineering, the School of Computer Science, the School of Electrical & Computer Engineering, the School of Meteorology, the Center for Analysis & Prediction of Storms, and the Homer L. Dodge Department of Physics & Astronomy.
At OSU, the collaboration is led by the OSU High Performance Computing Center, part of the Office of the Vice President for Research & Technology Transfer, and includes the Department of Microbiology & Molecular Genetics and the Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology.
