Who's Using OSCARS?

As of 2013, OSCARS has been adopted by 50+ global research networks, wide-area backbones, regional networks, exchange points, local-area networks, and testbeds. These include Internet2 in the US, the US Large Hadron Collider Network (US LHCnet), JGN in Japan, RNP in Brazil and many others. In 2012, two National Science Foundation-funded projects, DyGIR and DYNES, deployed another 20+ instances of OSCARS at university campuses.
