In March 2010, UIC published Impact magazine, showcasing UIC’s endeavors, “?…that have made and will continue to make lasting contributions to Chicago, the nation and the world.” One of the articles profiles Maxine Brown, associate director of UIC’s Electronic Visualization Laboratory, for her efforts in helping build StarLight - North America’s largest research and education networking hub - which is located in downtown Chicago. For the article, see: www.uic.edu/depts/omc/impact/visionary.html.
This article is based on recognition Brown received in March 2009, where she was selected as one of 10 Global Visionaries and featured in the multi-media public affairs series “Chicago Matters: Beyond Burnham”. This series was put together by WBEZ Chicago Public Radio and WTTW Chicago Public Television. Those interviews can be found at:
StarLight is an advanced optical infrastructure and proving ground for network services optimized for high-performance applications. StarLight is the GLIF Open Lightpath Exchange (GOLE) in Chicago. Operational since summer 2001, StarLight has 1GE and 10GE switch / router facilities and true optical switching for wavelengths. StarLight is being developed by the Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL) at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), the International Center for Advanced Internet Research (iCAIR) at Northwestern University, and the Mathematics and Computer Science Division at Argonne National Laboratory, in partnership with Canada’s CANARIE and the Netherlands’ SURFnet.
