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.
