Service: Internet2 Services
Information Technology Services (ITS) manages UNCG's membership in the national Internet2 research and education network. Internet2 is a high-speed advanced network that links together universities, industry, government and other research, educational, and creative entities. Beyond the network itself, Internet2 offers conferences and subject-area focused programs and special interest groups (e.g., Arts & Humanities, Health Sciences, Science & Engineering). Internet2 also offers “Net+ “services which include special licensing arrangements and discounts on technology services and software to member institutions.
UNCG is connected to the Internet2 research and education network, peer institutions and the commodity Internet through the North Carolina Research and Education Network (NCREN) infrastructure. Internet2 allows researchers from the government, industry and educational institutions to more effectively collaborate and communicate.
ITS provides general consulting services and recommendations for research, instructional and creative uses of Internet2.
