Today’s researchers use technology like never before and rely on high-speed networks to share data, establish remote virtual laboratories, connect to distant equipment and servers, and collaborate on global projects. NYSERNet’s Research & Education Network (R&E) makes it happen.
We designed our 200-gigabit network with a focus on research, offering affordable connections throughout New York to deliver speed, backup options, and dependable performance to more than 55 colleges and universities, medical centers, museums, and libraries, as well as Boards of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) and Regional Information Centers (RICs) who provide services to elementary and secondary schools within the state.
At the core is NYSERNet’s IP-based fiber optic network, which offers redundant connections to Internet2 and peering with national and international R&E networks, including Canada’s national research and education network and the U.S. Department of Energy’s ESnet. Through our hub in New York City, we can carry your network needs worldwide.
In addition to New York City, NYSERNet has connection points in Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, Albany, Potsdam, Binghamton, Philadelphia, and Ashburn, VA, creating a distributed architecture that lowers the connection costs for our member institutions by decreasing the distance from their campuses to the network. At the same time, NYSERNet offers a range of network speeds for institutions large and small, from 10 to 100 Gbps.
All not-for-profit and government entities, and for-profit research laboratories that have a research relationship with existing participants, are eligible to use our R&E network. Become a NYSERNet member today and take your researchers to the next level.
