ESnet5 Deployment Team Named as “Fierce” Innovators
The ESnet5 Deployment Team, charged with rolling out the 100 Gigabit per second national network that entered production in November, has been named to the first annual "Fierce 15" list of the top federal employees and teams who have done particularly innovative things. The list was announced Nov. 27 by Fierce Government, a newsletter covering the U.S. government.
The list was compiled by Fierce Government staff who conducted interviews with government officials and industry to identify some of the most innovative projects and forward-thinking people working in government. From that pool, editors collaboratively selected this year's Fierce 15. Read more about the Fierce 15 list.
