VENTURA, Calif. – The Ventura County Library system has completed its connections at all eleven of its branches to the California Research and Education Network. The network is a multi-tiered, advanced network-services fabric serving the vast majority of research and education institutions in the state.
It consists of roughly 3,800 miles of fiber plus last-mile fiber, as well as hundreds of optical components.
The improved connections through this high-speed network will be offered to Ventura County Library customers through the Library’s public lab computers, and through customer’s personal devices over Ventura County Library’s wireless internet.
This network has more than 20 million users, including most K-20 students, together with educators, researchers, and others working in California’s vital public-serving institutions. The network is operated by the Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California, a non-profit California corporation that connects California to the world.
The public is invited to experience faster internet speeds at Ventura County Library locations along with many other services including: tutoring; homework centers, printing and copying; meeting rooms and, of course books. Library hours and addresses can be found at: www.vencolibrary.org/locations.
