In 2005, Rice University embarked on a project to create a “Future ready” network second to none in supporting teaching and research, while meeting the needs of the campus-wide community and beyond. Today, this goal has been achieved in RiceNet. It is very clear that the environment for higher education is rapidly changing. In 2005, Rice University's network infrastructure was not sufficient to meet current academic, research, and operational demands. This system that used to enhance education, facilitate research, and support operations has now begun to be a significant obstacle to Rice's utilization of cyberinfrastructure. The Rice community has hundreds of applications, systems (e.g., e-mail, Banner, student registration, financial management, admissions, recruitment, human resources, Fondren Library Digital Library, etc.), and research projects that demand far more that what the current network is capable of.
