We are setting up a high speed (DS3) ATM network running from the dome of the 10-meter Keck Telescope on the summit of Mauna Kea in Hawaii to the Caltech campus in Pasadena, California. This network will be used to support remote observing, remote diagnostics of problems, remote software development, and other related tasks. We discuss the motivation for this effort, the network architecture, and the current status of this project.
