Welcome to KINBER
The Keystone Initiative for Network Based Education and Research is a non-profit
coalition of Pennsylvania’s education, research, healthcare, economic development
and other non-profit based communities. KINBER is lighting the way for new
and innovative partnerships for its anchor institutions and members in the realms
of digital resources, regional peering, tele-medicine, high performance computing
and network-centric information technology applications. Members will benefit
from enhanced access to regional, national, and global R&E networks with “built-in”
opportunities for collaborations between members.
KINBER Completes Construction of Statewide Broadband Network
PennREN, the Pennsylvania Research and Education Network, is KINBER’s first project
that delivers a statewide platform for connecting its members through facilities
based fiber-optic networking. Members can utilize PennREN’s services for advancing
their initiatives while KINBER provider partners can offer open access for expanding
broadband access across the commonwealth. With construction complete, PennREN lights over
1,600 miles of fiber on a middle-mile network that will connects over 70 locations.
Congratulations to KINBER and its partners for completing PennREN construction! Read more... strong>
