Through the Next Generation Internet (NGI), the Federal government has made a major commitment to its stated policy of accelerating the pace of developing national network infrastructure orders of magnitude more powerful than what exists today. Participants include all major agencies that use networking infrastructure. The National Science Foundation, NASA, NIH, DARPA, DOE, and NIST are expected to contribute significant additional funding to the development of the NGI. Two founding members of MREN are NGI organizations, and directly or through MREN, the Center has undertaken several NGI related projects. MREN is assisting to develop a Chicago based NGI advanced networking interexchange (NGIX).
