Abstract: The Northern Crossroads (NOX) is an affiliation of higher education, research, government, and partner organizations that support research, education, and economic development. The NOX is the hub of research networking in New England. Founded in 1998, The Northern Crossroads has its origins in the days of NEARnet and the relationships that we’re built in that endeavor. Those relationships were and continue to be the foundation of the Northern Crossroads efforts and this presentation will discuss how they have enabled other projects from fiber builds to NEREN (the Northeast Research and Education Network) and the MGHPCC ( Massachusetts Green High Performance Computing Center). From the days of T1’s and DS3’s to the current NOX regional network with 100GB connectivity to national and international Networks. How we continue to evolve and our interactions with other regional, national and international networking groups and networks.
