Expanding the Network

We are making significant progress in connecting all public, post-secondary institutions in British Columbia to the BCNET Advanced Network.

In this era of digital transformation at higher education institutions, connecting to the BCNET Advanced Network keeps our province’s colleges, research universities and institutes competitive. Our high-performance infrastructure boosts access to the data and technology that advance the strategic mandates of teaching, learning, and research, and is an efficient way to deliver shared IT solutions.

We began the Integrated Network Project in 2013 to deliver secure and equitable Advanced Network access so that every campus in British Columbia can deliver leading-edge technology services. By December 2018, it is anticipated that 100 percent of public, post-secondary institutions will be connected to the Network.
