Research Institutions

Research institutions are one of the founding groups of users served by MCNC; hence, MCNC’s broadband infrastructure network is named the North Carolina Research and Education Network.

Unparalleled levels of network performance, reliability, and security are at the core of connectivity requirements for researchers. Dedicated fiber, defined by these core elements, is available for North Carolina researchers who want to build and test foundational equipment for next-generation Internet in a real-world environment.

 North Carolina is no stranger to advanced research in numerous and diverse areas such as healthcare, clinical trials, science and technology, weather services, and a wide variation of initiatives led by some of the brightest minds on North Carolina’s research campuses. MCNC provides services and support to several venerable anchor institutions, including the Renaissance Computing Institute (RENCI), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and Pisgah Astronomical Research Institute (PARI).

MCNC’s history of collaboration, capacity, and future proof network and services planning gives researchers in North Carolina a real competitive advantage.
