The Bridger High Performance Research Network is a National Science Foundation funded project to extend the MSU research network into seven buildings and labs on campus. Each of these labs will receive connections to a dedicated research network that enables them to move data both on and off campus at the highest possible speeds without competing with the enterprise network for resources.
