MDREN, the Maryland Research and Education Network, provides advanced network services to institutions throughout the State of Maryland and connections to regional and national resources.

 MDREN consists of a network that connects University System of Maryland  members, other Maryland state universities, community colleges, and private  institutions to each other, the Internet, and Internet2, as well as access  to teleconferencing and distance learning facilities, over facilities  ranging from 1.5Mbps to 10 Gigabit Ethernet using MDREN’s own fiber core  infrastructure. The 10 Gbps DWDM core can easily scale much higher and provides redundant connectivity to multiple upstream providers in multiple locations.

 Oversight and governance is provided by the MDREN Board, as well as the Executive, Finance, and Membership and Services Committees. For more information on MDREN please contact us.
