Much like the Vistanet
pilot project, this concept will allow CATSCAN and other data to be switched and converted to three-dimensional images through a supercomputer, a useful technique for cancer treatments.
DANIEL STEVENSON is the director of Advanced Networking Technology at MCNC, the system architect and project manager for the VISTAnet
gigabit network project, and manages several other multiorganizational research projects focused on networking technology and applications.
According to Robert L Jones, supervisor of broadband communications products for the division, the new VistaNet products will allow a high-speed network that links multivendor equipment.
Development of VistaNet has been carried on partially in conjunction with the General Motors Assembly Div (GMAD), Jones said.
