Customer Success Story
From managed security to experimental physics, KanREN delivers state-of-the-art networking
Kansas Research and Education Network (KanREN) is a long-time leader in using advanced network technologies to deliver scalable, affordable, and innovative services. With Juniper, KanREN has been able to support research and collaboration with a 100GbE network and converge everything into a single administrative point.
KanREN delivers world-class broadband infrastructure to colleges, universities, community colleges, K-12 school districts, public libraries, and other community institutions. The nonprofit consortium serves more than 185,000 users at 442 institutions across the state.
Unlike most statewide networks, the educational and community institutions in Kansas are not obligated to use KanREN and can choose their provider on the open market. To succeed, KanREN must offer a compelling mix of technology and services with superior customer support at competitive prices.
