MU researchers are now hooked into a faster internet connection to support their new cyberinfrastructure project.

Internet2 is a secured network used in a few universities, research corporations and government agencies around the country. The university announced the new service today as a part of Cyberinfrastructure Day.

MU Chief Information Officer Gary Allen said this resource is very scarce but it has its advantages.
