Expanding the Network

We connected all public, post-secondary institutions in British Columbia to the powerful BCNET Advanced Network.

One of our key initiatives outlined in the BCNET strategic roadmap is to connect every public, post-secondary institution in BC to the Advanced Network. Between 2014 and 2018, we more than doubled the number of new site connections – from 64 to 150. In 2018 alone, we connected four new institutions and 26 sites.

In this era of digital transformation at higher education institutions, connecting to the BCNET Advanced Network keeps our member institutions 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.
