The Science DMZ Network is a 100-Gigabit per second (Gbps) longhaul network connection. It was built with a $500 thousand National Science Foundation grant. It links the College Station to the Lonestar Education and Research Network hub in Houston and advances data-intensive scientific research with a five-fold increase in data transfer speed. This high-speed connectivity supports the university's growing demand to access national and international research resources and efficiently move large data sets.
