BCNET has implemented monitoring tools to help network administrators diagnose their network, and address problems before issues escalate to network failure.
Locate, measure, and diagnose your connection! This self-help network diagnostics and benchmarking tool is provided for LAN administrators and users to run diagnostics and determine the health of network connections. To connect to BCNET's network diagnostics tool, use the button below.
Since 2009, the BCNET Advanced Network has been IPv6-enabled (Internet Protocol version 6), supporting researchers in their quest to share data, participate in international experiments and collaborate with their IPv6-enabled peers around the world. It is essential for Canadian universities to get on board, so that networks around the world can “talk” to each other and research collaboration can go on. In addition, IPv6 has a vastly larger address space and can accommodate the demand and growth of the Internet.
BCNET leads IPv6 workshops in an effort to help B.C.’s universities and other Canadian institutes become IPv6-ready and to promote and support IPv6 awareness and training. An online IPv6 Community Lab was developed as a test-bed for Canadian institutions to get hands-on experience.
