One of the new projects I get to work on is the SuperNet – which is the Big Network which connects every school in Alberta. Alberta is very large geographically so it is a big network – It encompasses over 12,000 km fibre-optic cable and 1,814 km wireless connections! We are celebrating by making plans to get all of the new schools being built connected to the network!
February 29 is a special day for the SuperNet because it is the SuperNet’s birthday. The original funding proposal which started the building of this massive network was released 12 years ago today on February 29, 2000 (a cool date because a leap year only hits a year ending in 00 every 400 years!)
Happy Birthday SuperNet! http://www.servicealberta.ca/AlbertaSuperNet.cfm
