SIGGRAPH 2001 provides wireless ethernet links in limited areas of the Convention Center. Attendees who want to use the wireless links should have their own wireless PC cards (802.11b).

GraphicsNet is built on FastEthernet links (100 Mbps) connecting the Internet Access Centers and wireless network locations; the presentation rooms for Papers, Panels, Courses, Sketches & Applications; Art Gallery, Educators Program, Emerging Technologies, Creative Applications Lab, and The Studio.

The production backbone is built with products from Cisco Systems, 3COM, Fluke, and others. It is connected to the Internet through a T3 circuit supplied by the Convention Center. The primary network management workstations and servers used in the Network Operations Center (NOG) are supplied by Sun Microsystems,Inc.
