WiscNet connects Wisconsin to this nationwide initiative where organizations from K12 school districts through R1 research universities can help shape and develop Internet2, the next generation Internet. Internet2 works with other state-wide Research and Education (R&E) networks which together collaborate seamlessly with R&E's to serve their communities with telemedicine, distance learning, and other life-changing applications.
In addition to Internet 2 connectivity, WiscNet member organizations can take advantage of Internet 2's NET+ service offerings. The NET+ Initiative is focused on more than just cloud technology. It's a different approach to creating solutions at scale, providing a portfolio of cloud offerings tailored to research and education. It helps institutions accelerate the adoption of cloud solutions, equipping and mobilizing more quickly the very users who are advancing research and education.
