NOAA joins the E-LITE network

ODU and the rest of the E-LITE participants welcomed the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to the E-LITE network in 2019. NOAA operates various sites in the Tidewater area and was previously searching for a broadband connectivity solution to connect six of these sites back to the NOAA N-Wave national network. The existing E-LITE network was already well suited to provide much of the long-haul transport needs, providing high-speed network connectivity to the Mid-Atlantic Research Infrastructure Alliance (MARIA) exchanges in both Ashburn and Atlanta. To complete the solution, additional network connectivity was procured from both Internet2 and local E-LITE partner Cox Communications. The project was an exciting opportunity for many institutions to collaborate and come together to solve common networking needs. E-LITE is happy to have a new partner in NOAA and to support their important mission of science, service, and stewardship.
