ESnet Leading the Way in Implementing Next Generation of Internet Protocol

December 21, 1999

A few years from now, the Internet could become a victim of its own success. Its dramatic growth -- often cited as 15 percent growth per month in number of users connected and as much as a factor of 10 growth per year in Internet backbone bandwidth required to support them — could overburden the current infrastructure, resulting in networks held together with cyber baling wire and virtual glue. One of the biggest long-term growth and scalability problems for the Internet is the lack of… Read More »

El Cerrito High School Students Take in Computing Sciences

May 4, 1999

A group 17 math and science students from El Cerrito High School recently visited the Lab last week to learn about real-world applications of mathematics and the various high-performance computing programs in Computing Sciences. The goal of the visit was to give students a look at possible career directions. The group was accompanied by Bob Fabini, who teaches physics and chemistry at the school. The visit stemmed from an article in the San Francisco Chronicle last fall about Jolanta… Read More »
