Resources for NCTN Customers

For NCTN Customers Connected through NCREN

MCNC is proud to provide many resources and services with NCREN constituents. Joining the NCTN community not only aligns you with one of the nation's first and one of the world's leading statewide regional optical networks, but it also opens the door to a network community with other health care and K-20 education participants. The NCTN is part of a larger statewide NCREN network that provides highly reliable, cost-efficient services.

NCREN Community Portal

MCNC designed and launched the NCREN Community Portal for our customers. Secure information access through login provides our health care and K-20 community a platform to better visualize operational and network performance data. This information-rich resource links our customers to our centralized database service, tools, network performance graphs and tickets for their respective institutions. To learn more about the portal, view the webinar in our training space on our website or read the news article with details about the project.

Visit the MCNC homepage and click on menu item “Portal” to login to view your online destination for service management.

While MCNC is known for connectivity and our network, we also offer other services that we invite you to explore by viewing our Service Catalog. Here you can learn about resources such as our data center or find out more about videoconferencing, event capture, and ways to enhance your remotely hosted events.
