Virginia Tech
Feature Paper / Presentation
Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, under the aegis of its eCorridors Program, has released the output of a series of studies on issues surrounding the investment and development of strategic telecommunications infrastructure for communities.

The studies utilized the southside and southwest Virginia regions as a model for a low-cost Geodesic Mesh network design and viable financial model that could be replicated in any region of the U.S. The overall premise of the studies is that investment in advanced, “next generation” telecommunications infrastructure is an essential and achievable component of a region’s economic development and quality of life.
