Abstract


The Lonestar Education and Research Network (LEARN) is a consortium of 36 organizations throughout Texas that includes public and private institutions of higher education, community colleges and K-12 public schools.  The consortium organized as a 501(c)(3), connects these organizations, and almost 500 affiliated community anchor institutions together with high performance optical network services to support their research, education, healthcare and public service missions.  LEARN is also a part of a national community of research optical networks and provides Texas high performance connectivity to the national and international research and education networks.  Through a diverse set of partnerships, LEARN has become a critical asset for Texans to collaborate and compete in the globally connected world we live in.
