Internet2® Emerging National Research & Education Networks

Located throughout the United States and across the globe, National Research & Education Networks (NRENs) allow connecting points for researchers and educators to gain access to valuable instruments or lectures at other institutions worldwide—often with a cost savings.  And because a typical NREN exists to connect educational organizations via a dedicated Internet infrastructure, it is a perfect environment to research emerging technologies that benefit from dedicated and secure fast networks.  Internet2 just might have your ticket to reach across the globe toward advanced research and enhanced educational experiences.

Scheduled Outages

Routine Maintenance

OIT performs routine maintenance on servers and systems every Sunday from 8 a.m. to noon. Many IT services may be offline intermittently during this time. Network access and computing resources availability (Banner, E-Learning, Exchange server, etc.) may also be affected. Since this is a low-usage period, fewer UA customers will be impacted. For questions, contact the IT Service Desk at (205) 348-5555 or itsd@ua.edu.
