UAPB gets $280k NSF grant for dedicated research network

PINE BLUFF, Ark. – UAPB was awarded a $281,488 grant from the National Science Foundation to create a Dedicated Research Network (DRN), making UAPB one of only two schools in the state with a network of this nature.

One challenge that continues to confront all research groups and projects at UAPB is that of the limited ability of the campus’ network to support large science data movement between research laboratories, national and global research partners. 

The result of a collaboration between the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science and Technical Services, this project is designed to enhance the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff’s campus network infrastructure to enabled dynamic network services for research activities.
