Abstract:
UC Santa Cruz and CENIC (Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California) will announce plans to install a "fiber optic" connection from a high-performance California network to the UCSC campus.

MEDIA ADVISORY: UCSC and CENIC to announce fiber-optic project

Santa Cruz, CA | Posted on January 23rd, 2008

The project, which will provide UCSC faculty, staff, and student researchers with a connection to a statewide research and education network that is 10 times faster than the campus's current access, also paves the way for extending similar connectivity to other educational institutions in Santa Cruz County.

Reporters are invited to cover this announcement.
When: Thursday, January 24, from 9 to 11 a.m.

Where: Alumni Room, University Center, UCSC campus

Who: Participants will include:

• George Blumenthal, Chancellor of UC Santa Cruz
• Larry Merkley, UCSC Vice Provost, Information Technology
• Stanford Woosley, UCSC Professor of Astronomy and Astrophysics
• Margaret Morse, UCSC Acting Dean of the Arts
• Jim Dolgonas, President/CEO of Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California (CENIC)
• Kris Hafner, Associate Vice President, Information Resources & Communication, UC Office of the President

Background:

UCSC and the Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California (CENIC) have partnered to introduce "Fiber to the Future," a project to connect the UC Santa Cruz campus to the ultra-high-performance California Research & Education Network (CalREN) via fiber-optic cable that is dedicated for CENIC use. This will provide campus researchers with greatly increased bandwidth and capabilities for dedicated bandwidth to the campus's Silicon Valley Center located at NASA's Ames Research Center.

Many UCSC researchers use CalREN in disciplines as diverse as nanotechnology, seismic and deep-ocean studies, genomics, art and new media, and in health sciences. CalREN also enables distance education, collaborative teaching, and rich-media educational partnerships between research institutions.

A fiber-optic connection to UCSC, expected to be in use by the end of 2008, will connect the campus to the CalREN network in Sunnyvale. This connection opens the door to expanding this ultra-high-speed Internet access to other educational institutions in Santa Cruz County, including Cabrillo College, the Santa Cruz County Office of Education, and county school districts.

The fiber-optic connection made possible through CENIC is designed to keep California at the forefront of global research innovation, thus fostering economic growth.
