9413336 Olson Lake Superior State University requests support from NSF for a connection of its campus network to Michnet and NSFNET. Michnet is the midlevel network located in the state of Michigan that will provide operations and network information services. It will give Lake Superior State University a 56 thousand bits per second connection to the NSFNET, a high speed (1.5 - 45 million bits per second) National Backbone network. The university needs greater functionality and network speed to be able to access supercomputers, libraries, and make file transfers along with being able to implement a more reliable mail system. Students and faculty research will benefit from the link. This is also a unique opportunity for the school to explore innovative educational resources.
