EMERYVILLE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CENIC is pleased to announce the opening of its new San Francisco Bay Area office in Emeryville. The Emeryville office provides a central location for serving CENIC’s many Northern California members. The office replaces the long-standing Sacramento office CENIC previously maintained and as such it will serve as a new venue for collaborations with and among its Northern California members, including among them University of California campuses, Stanford University, the Naval Post Graduate School, California State University campuses, Community Colleges, and K-12; and with key partners like the Department of Energy’s ESnet and the Bay Area Regional Interoperable Communications System (BayRICS) for first responders. The location also will facilitate the growing numbers of collaborations with industry, government, and policy makers in Silicon Valley, the San Francisco Bay area, in Sacramento, and internationally.
The new location will also facilitate CENIC’s activities to bring broadband to underserved areas of the State, and to those without adequate broadband, many in Northern California, helping to close the digital divide still adversely affecting education, public safety, and healthcare. CENIC has a close collaboration with the California Telehealth Network and its work to facilitate broadband deployment in underserved areas of the State will benefit the State’s healthcare delivery goals. Similarly, reducing the digital divide in provision of health care will assist CENIC in its collaboration with National LambdaRail (NLR) to use advanced technology, including high-speed networking, to improve the early identification and treatments of serious diseases.
CENIC’s new San Francisco Bay Area office is located at 6001 Shellmound St., Suite 850, Emeryille, CA 94608. CENIC’s main office is located in Los Angeles County.
CENIC shares its Northern California office space with Internet2, an Ann Arbor, Michigan, and Washington, DC-based non-profit providing national networking capacity primarily to research Universities in the U.S. and to which CENIC’s high-speed CalREN network connects, providing CENIC members network connectivity to other research Universities across the country.
