What is UIC's Research Network?
The foundations of the current campus research network (CRN) was established by the NSF INCUS grant. The networking requirements of the UIC Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL) helped UIC expand its bandwidth from basic Internet2 connectivity (via MREN to StarLight) to high-performance connectivity to regional, national and international research networks (via StarLight).
This has enabled advanced research partnerships with University of
Chicago, Northwestern University, and other research institutions and
facilities. ACCC currently provides routing and on-campus network
segmentation to existing researchers on campus at 10Gb and, thanks to
INCUS, to a few laboratories, including EVL, at 40-100Gb. ACER
collaborated with campus researchers recently to win a NSF $500,000
award to build/extend Science DMZ network at UIC and to extend
high-performance networking (10Gb-40Gb) capabilities to more researchers
