Internet-2 is high performance advanced network initiated by the University Corporation for Advanced Internet Development (UCAID) with the effort of US research universities. The high bandwidth, low latency,quality of service (QoS), multicast function and security assurance of Internet-2 facilitate remote applications such as rapid distribution of large-volume medical images and interactive teleconsultation. InNorth America, over 200 research universities and laboratories are connected by Abilene backbone that currently has 10 Gigabit-per-second capacity and about 50 ms round-trip-time across the US continent. However, global medical image and knowledge exchange requires a tremendously long and expensive connection from international partners outside US to a Chicago-based optical infrastructure for international Internet-2 access, called StarLight.
