work to date

Since the inception of this project in July 1994, SDSC and its partners have successfully designed and built the NAP in Pennsauken, N.J. Our NAP is completely operational and most of the major NSPs have co-located equipment at the NAP and are currently exchanging traffic.

Having a reliable and robust working NAP is critical to the US Internet transition from being built around the NSFnet backbone to a more commercial network of networks.
