2 nlr.net © 2004 National LambdaRail, Inc 2 National LambdaRail Vision National LambdaRail (NLR) is a nationwide network infrastructure that provides multiple networks – shared, private, research, production, experimental – with comprehensive sets of services that are physically and operationally independent from one another on the same optical-fiber footprint. Support experimental and production networks Foster networking research Promote next-generation applications Facilitate interconnectivity among high-performance research and education networks NLR puts the control, power and the promise of an advanced network infrastructure into the hands of the scientists, researchers and educators of this nation.
