The California Academy of Sciences Joins CENIC

The California Academy of Sciences now has a direct connection to CENIC’s California Research and Education Network (CalREN), and from there to the world. At a speed of 10 Gbps per second, this access to the ultra-high bandwidth of the CENIC network will provide scientists and patrons of the Academy with fifty times more capacity, enabling new opportunities to engage, create, invent, and learn. Prior to completing the connection to CalREN, the Academy was operating with 200 Mbps of connectivity. This level of enhanced connectivity is already making a difference in day-to-day operations.

CENIC and ESnet Announce Joint Cybersecurity Initiative

The Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California (CENIC) and the Energy Sciences Network (ESnet) are pleased to announce a partnership between their organizations in the area of cybersecurity. The defense of information systems and networks is a necessary function of all modern enterprises, but scientific research organizations face particular challenges: support of open science and, increasingly, big-data science; diverse research portfolios; openness to experimentation across all intellectual domains; openness to collaborations within and across institutions – regionally, nationally, and internationally; and the need for seamless access to remote data-sources, scientific tools, and computational resources. The ESnet and CENIC communities share these challenges and are committed to improving the cybersecurity capacity of both organizations so that research is both open and secure.
