Premium Lock Internet speedometer report shows N.C. is s-l-o-w

How fast - or slow, depending on your point of view - is overall Internet access in North Carolina? How about slower than in South Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia and especially Virginia? In fact, the tar Heel state ranks 30th, according to a new report. The data shows new fiber networks can't be deployed quickly enough to satisfy net users thirsting for speed.

Premium Lock How can North Carolina become a true Gigabit State?

Analysis: Google Fiber's stated interest in the Triangle and Charlotte is good news for the state. But is this the "holy grail" for North Carolina? Is access to gigabit service from Google and/or other providers in our urban areas enough? No. I would argue strongly that we are not the Gigabit state until affordable options for scalable broadband service expand into rural North Carolina. This isn't a "nice to have" anymore but a necessity.

Premium Lock Google Fiber could help make NC the first 'gigastate'

If Google Fiber were to pick the Research Triangle and Charlotte, the high-speed connectivity across the state would take quantum leaps. Don't forget the NC Next Generation Network is under development, MCNC's NCREN has a state-wide fiber backbone, and Time Warner Cable has Duke Net's highway. More projects might be coming - say from some giant like AT&T. Mix all these networks and you have the first "gigastate."

Premium Lock SDN - software defined networking - inspires next generation of connectivity

SDN, which stands for software defined networking, is a term that people will be reading and hearing a great deal more about in coming years. Why? Because SDN is transforming the way people and companies communicate across networks, writes John Moore, who is senior director of innovation and strategy and chief security officer at MCNC. Much of the pioneering work is taking place right here in North Carolina, but Moore says much work remains to be done.
