Using fiber optic lines, NIUNet is a 175-mile fiber optic ring enhancing both the university├ó€™s own research mission and economic development efforts around the state. NIUNet├ó€™s goal was simple: create a high-speed network that linked the main campus in DeKalb with Outreach Centers in Rockford, Naperville, and Hoffman Estates. NIUNet now reaches out to K-12 schools, hospitals, libraries, and local governments, creating an ultra-high speed network for the development of programs and technology at NIU.
