StarLightSM is an NSF and university-supported carrier-neutral co-location and exchange facility located on Northwestern University's downtown Chicago campus. It serves numerous metropolitan, national and international advanced optical networking infrastructure initiatives converging in Chicago.
StarLight anchors a host of regional, national and international wavelength-rich LambdaGrids, with switching and routing at the highest experimental levels. It is also a persistent testbed for conducting research and experimentation with lambda signaling, provisioning and management, developing new data-transfer protocols, and designing real-time distributed data mining and visualization applications.
