Who we are

MCNC is a technology non-profit that builds, owns, and operates a leading-edge broadband infrastructure for North Carolina’s research, education, non-profit healthcare, and other community institutions.

What we do

Leverage MCNC’s vast, open access broadband infrastructure to create unprecedented opportunity for North Carolinians where they live, access education, seek economic gain, participate in their governance and access healthcare.

Why we do it

MCNC’s purpose is to work with the existing and future connectors to our North Carolina Research and Education Network (NCREN) to identify and meet broadband, network services and application needs that are not currently being met. MCNC meets these needs by partnering with best of breed service and application providers to develop, deploy and sustain solutions for NCREN connectors.
