CENIC, UC ANR to provide research scientists with super-fast Internet connectivity

The University of California Agriculture and Natural Resources Division (UC ANR) and the Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California (CENIC) have connected key UC ANR facilities to CENIC´s ultra-fast 100Gbps research and education network, extending ultra-broadband capacity to UC researchers in rural sites across California, the company said.

UC ANR is comprised of nine Research and Extension Centers (RECS) and 57 local UC Cooperative Extension offices. These facilities, until now, have been hampered by poor Internet connectivity to support the 700 UC academic researchers who are engaged with community and industry partners to ensure that California has healthy food systems, environments, and communities.

The Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources (ANR) is a statewide network of University of California researchers and educators dedicated to the creation, development and application of knowledge in agricultural, natural and human resources.

CENIC connects California to the world–advancing education and research statewide by providing the world-class network essential for innovation, collaboration, and economic growth.
