Antennas for backup connections between COFI and the UPR network installed and under test at Northwestern (Evanston and Chicago Campus)

High-speed data transmission is a necessity to research and collaboration for today’s large science experiments. Wireless technology has evolved tremendously, and can now replace costly and invasive physical cables and still provide large bandwidth internet access. Northwestern University is currently testing a series of commercially available, point-to-point gigabit microwave backhaul links that are transmitting blazing fast data at a distance of over 10 miles! This technology will allow COFI and UPR to engage in science with international experiments regardless of the size of the datasets.
