WiscNet Custom Private Network

WiscNet Custom Private Network

WiscNet's Custom Private Network Service reserves a portion of your bandwidth -- an amount you specify, up to 25% -- that enables you to connect directly with an endpoint of your choice. Maybe this allows you to increase your class options, send information over a private network from one point to another, deliver a continuously reliable service to those your constituents, or keep going with the magic you're already got. WiscNet's Custom Private Network Service can help you plan for the future, and then bring you there. 

WiscNet Advisories to the Membership

WiscNet Advisories to the Membership

WiscNet Advisories to the Membership allow people from the WiscNet community who are passionate about a variety of topics to teach and learn with others who have the same interests, ideas, and questions. These groups meet several times a year to dive deep into their topics and work together to report out their discussions, ideas, and findings to the greater membership at WiscNet Connections each May. 

WiscNet Network Access

WiscNet Network Access

We want our members to use and grow into their full capacity at no additional WiscNet cost, therefore, for an annual fixed fee, WiscNet provides unlimited Internet transit. WiscNet does not measure Internet usage, nor do we set limits or cap the amount of data our member organizations use. WiscNet maintains an extremely high-speed, scalable and robust backbone that provides redundant core routing.  When member organizations increase Internet transport capacity, the annual WiscNet Network Access Service fee will not increase.

WiscNet Regional Data Centers

WiscNet Regional Data Centers

WiscNet partners with various member organizations in sharing data center space to offer co-location and develop additional opportunities for all WiscNet members. Use cases include disaster recovery, cloud services, shared hardware and/or applications, or others we haven't thought of yet. Maintaining a quality data center space for critical servers and services can get very expensive in terms of local resources. WiscNet offers its members access to secure data centers so you can shift responsibilities off site.
