Conduit - CINC

Crews have been burying conduit for fiber optic cable at the library this week.  Once completed this will get us access to the high-speed backbone of the WiscNet state broadband network.  This is a great advantage for us now and into the future as we will have the network capacity to manage networked technologies as they evolve.  This is made possible by the Chippewa Valley Internetworking Consortium (CINC), a regional “Community Area Network (CAN) formed in 1999 that is committed to “Broadband Serving the Public Interest.” CINC became an Unincorporated Association in 2011 and coordinates regional communication infrastructure projects with city, county and state government, educational institutions, libraries, hospitals, health care, nonprofits, and technology providers to facilitate network creation that is innovative, competitive, and sustainable. Through a coordinated regional communication infrastructure, CINC helps the Chippewa Valley be innovative, competitive, and economically viable for present and future generations.”

WiscNet is a membership organization that provides research and education networking services to public and private higher education, K12 school districts, libraries, municipalities, and hospitals throughout Wisconsin. We connect people and strategies to solve common technology challenges, and to develop innovative solutions in support of educational, research, and community service missions.
