Internet Society

Founded by Internet pioneers, the Internet Society (ISOC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring the open development, evolution, and use of the Internet. Working through a global community of chapters and members, the Internet Society collaborates with a broad range of groups to promote the technologies that keep the Internet safe and secure, and advocate for policies that enable universal access. The Internet Society is also the organizational home of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).


Enabling science through engagement and advanced high-performance networking

IN@IU supports:

  • The 100G TransPAC-Pacific Wave research and education network between Seattle and Tokyo
  • The 100G Networks for the European, American, and African Researchers (NEAAR)
  • Two 10G circuits for TransPAC between Guam and Hong Kong

That address has to be unique so computers know where to find each other. ICANN helps coordinate and support these unique identifiers across the world.
