CENIC Optical Network Infrastructure (ONI) Project Nearing Deployment

The ONI project work is occurring simultaneously with the SWAN project. Some facilities involved in SWAN are sharing rights of way, duct occupancy agreements, and joint use agreements with the ONI fiber paths. Construction is complete on one of the two paths between the UC Davis main campus and the Medical Center, and the second path is nearly complete. Wave Division Multiplexing is the method used to provide multiple gigabit Ethernet connections between the two locations, as well as providing a carrier facility for voice toll bypass.
