The goal of visualization and graphics oriented scientists, engineers, and educators is to electronically share their products with colleagues around the United States and the world. Thus, these specialists have dubbed their communication requirement as `100 megabits (per second) to the desktop.' This simply means that these high technology specialists would like to transmit and receive visual products in real-time, unimpeded by the network speed and interconnection protocols.
