The Internet2 (I2) consortium, which is building a high-speed alternative to the Internet for research and educational purposes, has demonstrated the project's capabilities. The consortium piped some of the system's demos to the US National Science Foundation via the high-speed Backbone Network Service, which is the main highway for I2. Demonstrations included a high-speed link enabling students from different universities to work on collaborative pieces, including graphics and multimedia applications, and researchers at Cornell University used an electron microscope at the University of California to view biological specimens, which were later examined by computers at the San Diego Supercomputing Center. In another demo remote users accessed a VRML molecular-modelling system to construct and view molecular configurations in real time.
