Development of an Internet II Advanced Performance Standard Initiative. Directs the Joint Commission on Technology and Science to determine what public resources, including but not limited to public-private partnerships, other public and private resources, taxation policies, and direct financial assistance may be used to further the development of an Internet II, advanced, high-speed telecommunications backbone network with the capability of transmitting a minimum of one gigabite per second (OC-24) utilizing the IPv6 Internet Protocol to all workstations within the Commonwealth; and monitor, cooperate, and coordinate with other agencies of the Commonwealth and committees of the General Assembly to ensure a sound, progressive statewide program is in place and being actively pursued. The Internet II project is a collaborative effort among a number of universities, federal R&D agencies, and private sector firms to develop a next generation Internet for research and education, including both enhanced network services as well as the multimedia applications that will be enabled by those services. As part of its ongoing mandate, the Joint Commission on Technology and Science currently works with other state agencies to monitor broadband deployment.
