REANNZ update - Moving data, mobilising knowledge
REANNZ’s mission is to design, build and operate New Zealand’s high-performance network and provide member’s with network services that enable them to connect and collaborate with each other and the global NREN ecosystem.
At a high level, what does this mean for the research and education ecosystem in New Zealand?
During this talk Carl Olsen, Member Engagement Manager at REANNZ, will cover the fundamental aspects of what makes up the REANNZ network. He will introduce the people in the team that work to support and enable members with connectivity solutions and collaboration opportunities within the wider research and education community.
The session will also look at the core network that connects members nationally and the subsea cable system that connects New Zealand to the international network of global NRENs (National Research and Education Network). REANNZ acts as a part of the science and research system in New Zealand, connecting people, knowledge and capability to support developing ideas and innovations.
The talk will look at use cases and examples of how the team enables research outcomes via the high speed network and demonstrate how members use the network.
Carl leads the engagement team at REANNZ joining from Kiwibank where he focused on building strong, high performing teams to deliver better outcomes for customers and the organisation. His focus is to build deeper relationships with members to understand the unique needs of science and data intensive research, to ensure that members have access to the networking capabilities, people and resources they need.
