Network Engineering and Telecommunications
The Network Engineering and Telecommunications Section (NETS) is responsible for the planning, engineering, installation, operation, maintenance, strategy, and research regarding the state-of-the-art data networking and telecommunications facilities for NCAR/UCAR. NETS provides a vital service to the atmospheric and oceanographic research communities by ensuring supercomputing resources are linked to scientists at NCAR and throughout the university research community. These connectivity activities are essential to the effective use of NCAR/UCAR's scientific resources, and they foster the overall advancement of scientific inquiry. This work support NCAR's strategic priority of "Developing and providing advanced services and tools."
