10 GigE campus network in Japan!!!

Force10 Networks today announced that the University of Electro-Communications (UEC), Japan's national science and technology school, is upgrading its campus network to 10 Gigabit Ethernet as part of its e-Campus Initiative as well as to support other research and computing needs across the campus.

"With our e-learning initiative well underway, we expect that traffic on the network will grow quickly over the next couple of years, and we needed an infrastructure that could support that growth," said Masayuki Takada, assistant professor at UEC.

University campus having 10 Gig backbone. Thats astounding. The Japanese have a huge research budget, and I have heard that every Japanese undergraduate is given a laptop when he enters college, and another one after two years into his program. Comments from anyone?
