New Brunswick’s New Advanced Network Fully Operational

After years of planning, installation, and configuration, New Brunswick’s next generation research and innovation network is completed and fully operational. The NB network also represents a new partnership that will serve the region for many years to come. Building on professional relationships and common interests, the NB/PEI Educational Computing Network (ECN) is partnering with the National Research Council-Institute for Information Technology (NRC-IIT), and the English and French community college systems in NB (NBCC/CCNB), in the new sustainable, economical, and long-term network covering all of  NB and PEI. The new network  features high-speed, high-bandwidth fibre cable installed between Moncton, Saint John, and Fredericton, and utilizes leased services to complete the northern loop of NB, thus connecting pretty well all post-secondary locations to the main NB/national research network.
