In brief: KINBER reports milestone
The Keystone Initiative for Network Based Education and Research has announced that Velocity Network connected the Pennsylvania Research and Education Network to the WQLN Public Media studios in Erie and successfully transmitted data to WPSU in State College.
The connection marked the first time a last-mile provider linked organizations that are not connected directly to KINBER's high-speed fiber-optic broadband PennREN network. Velocity Network and other last-mile providers connect KINBER's member organizations and other interested nonprofit organizations directly to PennREN to provide access to services and solutions provided by KINBER.
KINBER is a nonprofit organization whose members include the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education, the Pennsylvania Commission for Community Colleges and the Hospital & Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania.
