Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and now Research as a Service (RaaS). New Jersey universities will be able to conduct high-level research without requiring any infrastructure on campus by plugging into a high-speed network.
“EdgeCon 2019, a conference that took place on January 9-11 in Long Branch, attracted hundreds of IT and communications networking professionals from New Jersey universities, K-12 educational systems and governments. Each year, these professionals come together at EdgeCon conferences, sponsored by NJEdge (Newark), to learn best practices and to network with their colleagues…One of the initiatives Conn is most proud of is the evolution of NJEdge’s fiber optic network, which the organization makes available to its university members. A new program is designed to create a level playing field for university researchers who need high-speed networking resources in order to collaborate with their colleagues.”
