$1.8 million grant awarded for grid network

The National Science Foundation has awarded University of California, San Diego a five-year, $1.8 million grant to implement an advanced computer and telecommunications network.

The Computer Science and Engineering building at UCSD, currently under construction, will reportedly be equipped with a Fast Wired and Wireless Grid, also called FWGrid.

Andrew Chien, FWGrid's principal investigator and a UCSD computer science and engineering professor, said the network will provide researchers with a "living laboratory" for grid computing.

The California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology, or Cal-(IT)2, will participate in the project.
