In the Media: Q&A with Internet2’s Rob Vietzke Published in Campus Technology
Estimated reading time: 2 minutes
Next month marks some major milestones for the Internet2 member community, including the culmination of our transition to the fifth-generation Internet2 network.
Campus Technology recently interviewed VP of Network Services Rob Vietzke to learn about the Next Generation Infrastructure (NGI)—from the five community-driven principles that guided NGI from the start, to the new services, capabilities, and efficiencies NGI brings to the community going forward.
“The timing is somewhat serendipitous. The majority of the work on the Internet2 Next Generation Infrastructure will be finished in early October, when we celebrate our 25th anniversary,” Vietzke said. “This is the fifth generation of infrastructure for the Internet2 community, and we are delivering the most comprehensive set of network improvements in Internet2’s history.”
