The long-awaited New Brunswick/PEI ORAN project is about to get underway. The ORAN (Optical Regional Advanced Network) will provide long-term, high-speed, high-bandwidth network service to researchers and others across the region. The partners, including public universities, colleges, and the National Research Council Institute for Information Technology, will share the new network. CANARIE, Canada's Advanced Network provider, and the NB provincial government are contributing to the capital costs of the project, which will see new fibre cable deployed between Moncton, Saint John and Fredericton, plus development of a vastly improved network looping around then entire northern region of the province. For more information about CANARIE, consult their website.
