High Performance Wireless Network - Hans-Werner BraunThe High Performance Wireless Research and Education Network (HPWREN) started in the year 2000 via a National Science Foundation network research grant, with additional NSF funding awards since, HPWREN functions as a collaborative cyberinfrastructure on research, education, and first responder activities. The project supports a high-performance wireless network in San Diego, Riverside, and Imperial counties. Th e network includes backbone nodes, typically on mountain tops, to connect often hard-to-reach areas in remote environments. HPWREN interconnects with the rest of the Internet at the San Diego Supercomputer Center here at UCSD. More information on HPWREN can be found at
