The article focuses on the technological impact of regional optical networks' (RON) rise that was driven by the U.S. research and education community's investment effort in fiber optics. Among the innovations spurred by RON are the development of Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexers (ROADMs), the Generalized Multiprotocol Label Switching (GMPLS), and the Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing. RON's technological implication is demonstrated by Georgia's communication network PeachNet.
