Tim Kuhfuss, manager of advanced networking at Argonne National Laboratory's Electronics and Computing Technologies Div, and Rick Stevens, director of Argonne's Mathematics and Computer Science Div, are participants in an experiment involving a wide-area ATM backbone. The network, known as the Information-Wide Area Year (I-WAY), will interconnect supercomputer sites and Cave Automatic Virtual Environments (CAVE), also known as virtual reality caves. Stevens says the experiment's aim is to gain insight into the probable nature of future high-bandwidth applications. A year-long effort will culminate in a demonstration at the Supercomputing conference, to be held in San Diego, CA in Dec 1995. Kuhfuss says I-WAY will provide teraflop computing for applications such as real-time feedback among geographically dispersed design consultants. Tom DeFranti, director of the Electronic Visualization Laboratory at the University of Illinois, says implications of virtual prototyping are enormous.
