The Kiwi Advanced Research & Education Network (KAREN) is a next-generation telecommunications link for New Zealand educators, researchers and innovators. KAREN is the New Zealand implementation of NREN.
Target Audience: Massey University staff
KAREN is an attempt by the New Zealand government to aid the collaboration of research between domestic and international academic institutions. An example of a project that could benefit from KAREN is:
A group of Massey University researchers are working with radio data from satellite dishes. Large volumes of data to work on is generated, so a fellow researcher - located in Sydney - offers to help. KAREN makes it possible to send the data to Australia at very fast speed. Additionally, there is no cost for the data transfer as the only fee involved is access to the network.
As Massey University is paying for access to this service, it is up to Massey researchers to use the service.
There is no cost to departments (outside of ITS) for access. Everyone that has a Massey Network User Account has access to KAREN.
