Great Plains Network Research Platform

GPN is building a Research Platform (RP) modeled on the Pacific Research Platform.

This is a network diagram of the GPN Research platform.  Our members are creating and continually improving it.

The GPN RP started with the purchase of seven FIONA nodes, one for each state.  Other funds (varied from state to state) bought four more FIONA nodes bringing the total to 11.  These FIONA nodes are configured as Data Transfer Nodes (DTNs).

The RP is made possible because of the region’s long history of intra- and inter-state collaborations such as ONEOCII, ShowME CI, ACI-REF Virtual Residency, the GPN Cyberinfrastructure Program Committee, and the GPN Network Technical Advisory Committee.
