Not necessarily.  I don't see why the Fedora Project couldn't qualify 
as a Sponsored Participant on Internet2 [1].  In fact, Red Hat is 
already connected in Raleigh.  I'd gladly help pursue this, but I may 
not be the right person seeing as I'm in Boston, not PHX.

I2 also has a "private lambda" service where you can get your own 
dedicated 10Gig wavelength across the backbone [2].  It seems they are 
currently offering no-fee trials of this service to I2 connectors.

Arizona State University is already on I2 via CENIC, and CENIC offers 
this Dynamic Circuit capability.  MCNC in Durham where Red Hat is 
connected doesn't appear to have DCN though.


"Sponsored participants are individual educational institutions 
(including not-for-profit and for-profit K-20, technical, and trade 
schools), museums, art galleries, libraries, hospitals, as well as 
other non-educational, not-for-profit or for-profit organizations that 
require routine collaboration on instructional, clinical, and/or 
research projects, services, and content with Primary participants or 
with other Sponsored Participants. Such organizations typically are 
either not eligible or not able to become Internet2 members."


"To support the development, deployment, and use of innovative hybrid 
optical networking capabilities, Internet2 is initiating a no-fee 
trial of the Internet2 DCN."
