* Visionary researchers from across the country are utilizing NLR's resources to advance science and research.
* GENI has awarded its initial contracts and a number of the awardees are planning to utilize NLR's infrastructure for their groundbreaking network discoveries.
* NLR's Cisco TelePresence-ready infrastructure is tested and is ready to support researchers nationwide.

It's going to be a great year!
