Internet2 Facility


Hunter College of the City University of New York was linked to the NYSERNet ring which helps to connects east coast institutions (private and educational) to the fast fiber optic Abilene Network of the Internet2 consortium. Through a grant from the Research Centers in Minority Institutions (RCMI) Program of the National Institute of Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and matching funds from the City University of New York, our Internet2 and Video Collaboratoration Facility was built. We are now directly connected to the Abilene, Internet2 backbone, directly through CUNY’s main gateway, thus facilitating communication with other Internet2 based institutions at much higher speeds.
