Background: A new connection on a fiber optic cable between Richland and Seattle has been lit to support the high-speed transfer of very large data sets between researchers at the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and the U.S. and international science communities. The new connection links PNNL to the Pacific Northwest Gigapop exchange point in Seattle. From there, the lab is able to join the DOE UltraScience Network as well as other national and international networks. This light-riding connection advances the ability of PNNL scientists to collaborate and share information from major research programs in homeland security, cyber security, information visualization, and human and environmental health with scientific institutions worldwide.
