(1) Demonstration of VH data across the Abilene Network (note red usage on map, and peak on graph)  

(2) Proposed scalable network

One of the goals of the Visible Human Project Phase II is to implement Internet2 connectivity to serve large datasets. The networking team here at the University of Michigan and at the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center are working to tune and improve network efficiency. Using high speed lines, demonstrations have shown the capability of the Abilene network to serve the large volumes of data that the VHP requires (fig.1). The next stage will be to implement a scalable end-to-end network using specialized servers (fig.2).
