The Nectar Project

This is the World Wide Web home page of the ARPA-funded Gigabit Nectar project in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University.

The Nectar project at CMU addresses the problem of building high-performance networks and works with applications groups to explore how their applications can benefit from the availability of high-speed networks. The project has evolved through three distinct phases: the original Nectar project (now called Prototype Nectar), Gigabit Nectar and an ATM-based effort called Credit Net.
