Connecticut Education Network Upgrades to 100-Gbps Science DMZ Connection
Connecticut Education Network built a better Science DMZ, providing a 100-Gbps, low-latency connection to Internet2 and support for more data-intensive research and scientific collaboration.
The Connecticut Education Network (CEN) delivers reliable, high-speed Internet access, data transport, and network and cloud services to its members throughout Connecticut at affordable rates. CEN connects 200 K-12 schools, 150 libraries, 39 higher education institutions, 100 municipalities, and 10 government agencies statewide.
CEN’s new network delivers greater backbone capacity, fast speeds, and highly reliable Internet and network and cloud services to educational institutions, libraries, and government agencies across the state. Beyond supporting UConn’s data-intensive research needs, CEN can offer new services such as Layer 2 VPN and private Ethernet.
