Welcome to SRnet's new website. Everything you wish to know about SRnet is located in this site.
Explore the site and find out what SRnet is and how to become an SRnet member.
As SRnet is a small research and education network with a small human resource component SRnet news & events are occassional but limited. To this end SRnet has provided the news & events links to our counterparts in BC (BCnet) and Alberta (Cybera) as well as the news & events link to CANARIE our national backbone operator and SRnet's major funder.
You can review SRnet's network map, CANARIE's network map, and the Global research network map in the Network Maps section in the Network section.
View the actual dynamic network performance MRTG graphs for each of SRnet's members in the Network Status category within the Network menu.
The members section provides a roster of SRnet's members by location and there is a member's only section which all members have credentials to enter. This section contains all SRnet's Bylaws, AGM miunutes, audited financial statements and other items specific to member organisations.
There is also a section with data and documents that the Board alone has access to.
An overview of SRnet's current projects is provided in the Projects menu item.
Plans for the future include the addition of images from our member locations to provide you with an idea of the breadth and depth of research and education activities going on in Saskatchewan.
Look around and please provide feedback in the contact section as we are looking to improve the website on an ongoing basis.
SRnet has a new location, at 150F - 2 Research Drive in Regina, Saskatchewan. The location, on the campus of the University of Regina, is housed with SpringBoard West Innovations Inc, and boasts fully-equipped videoconferencing capabilities.
