Sandia National Laboratories is using a set of evolving technologies to develop a standards-based approach to wide- and local-area networking, which offers the potential of gigabit speeds. In particular, asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) switches and synchronous optical network (SONET) technologies were used to build a supercomputing network between its California and New Mexico sites and now is being deployed in the local-area environment. The progress of these endeavors and the lessons learned are discussed
