1 Presentation to APAN Honolulu, Hawaii February 1, 2001 Donald R. Riley Chair, IEEAF Associate Vice President and CIO University of Maryland, College Park
2 About IEEAF With the Internet's rich successes, many of which were stimulated by academic needs and interests as well as technical skills and planning, we now stand ready to promote what could be, essentially "universal educational access". The US regulatory climate achieved "universal service" for voice and the combination of technologies and competition, globally, now offer the promise of bandwidth rates and for a much richer combination of learning media and pedagogies. IEEAF seeks to provide and stimulate real benefits for educational institutions and their learning communities.
3 IEEAF Vision "Non Nobis Solo" (Not by ourselves alone) We share a vision intended to accelerate the growth of Internet2 such that it: Enables and stimulates the rapid expansion of educational collaboration in many forms between and among teaching and learning institutions around the world. Cultivates and promotes practical solutions to delivering scalable, universally available and equitable means of access to suitable bandwidth and necessary network resources in support of these collaborations.
4 Achieving the Vision To achieve this vision we intend to create frameworks and alliances between University and other educational leadership groups as well as with key public and private sector partners to: Advance prudent strategies to secure and leverage network-related assets, and to capitalize on events associated with the build-out of the global submarine and terrestrial fiber optics networks. Create a spirit of wise stewardship to secure, leverage and deploy both these assets themselves and the equal and fair use of the bandwidth available from these assets for a broad range of educational purposes. Devise creative and flexible governance structures and processes to ensure the most responsive results are achieved in the use of these assets. Manage these resources to serve the broadest of global, national, and institutional priorities for educational access -- University, secondary, or elementary levels. "Non Nobis Solo" (Not by ourselves alone)
5 IEEAF Vision Further, we believe that we can help create both the infrastructure and incentives to encourage the expansion of innovation and the means to promote stronger ties between educational institutions, industry and national leaders by stimulating the development of programs and activities that: Mentor and develop the human potential of our students Expand the technical skill development and employability of our students Broaden the means for faculty to conduct bandwidth intensive research and instruction Reduce the potential that "less than universal access" to important educational resources remains a barrier for some in the new millennium Nurture new opportunities for job creation and productivity growth made possible by such connectivity "Non Nobis Solo" (Not by ourselves alone)
6 IEEAF Strategies To achieve the vision of IEEAF, we intend to create frameworks and alliances between University and other educational leadership groups as well as with other key partners. Methods of helping IEEAF include donations of physical facilities (co-location and riser space), equipment, licenses to "rights of way","dark fiber" or conduits at selected points of build-out of the US and global fiber-optical network, or wave-lengths. Such donations will be a principal means of connectivity and linkage for educational institutions to conduct teaching and learning.

12 IEEAF Affiliates Corporations, educational institutions, government entities, and regional/national networking organizations wishing to contribute to the expansion of next generation internet capabilities and advanced research and education network collaborations may become an affiliate of IEEAF. Partnership between these varied entities ensure the most effective means of promoting global connectivity and collaborations by actively leveraging our collective resources, stakeholder base, and spheres of influence, as well as with government agencies, foundations and corporations who share in and seek to advance our vision.

Carrier Network Benefits from the proposed VA/MD Economic Development Initiatives DC to Atlanta carrier traffic corridor Atlanta to Chicago/ Detroit carrier traffic corridor DC to points west carrier traffic corridor Red solid line = carrier opportunity for route diversity/redundancy for traffic going south from DC.(blue line) while, at the same time, collecting international traffic at two submarine cable landing sites. Two new submarine cable landing sites. Kentucky Virginia New and/or diverse/redundant routing for east-west / north south telecom traffic flows. Opportunity to split rings. DC Red lines = New network paths that result from the VA/MD/ Kentucky communications development zones. Example of possible carrier interest might be Level 3. Discussion with Level 3 shows possible interest in splitting their large DC to Atlanta to Chicago to DC ring.
