Distance learning breaks down barriers for Alaska, a state that's more than twice as large as Texas - more than 586,000 square miles with only 12,200 miles of roads. Alaska Distance Education Consortium (ADEC) wanted to deploy network that enables distance education and collaboration across Alaskan villages and towns. To facilitate distance education, ADEC is deploying the AK-20 Network, which will connect Alaskan educational and research institutions to Internet2, higher education's national high-speed broadband network.
