High-Speed Rail and CENIC Join Forces

The California High-Speed Rail Authority (Authority) and the Corporation for Education Networking Initiatives in California (CENIC) announced a partnership to expand the availability and accessibility of high-capacity broadband to communities and institutions throughout California.

As a part of the high-speed rail system corridor, the Authority and CENIC will create an ultra-fast broadband network, connecting into CENIC’s statewide research and education network, as well as to other public and private sector broadband networks.

The Authority and CENIC will jointly develop a strategic plan that will include network design, deployment, economics, operation and management. Furthermore, the Authority and CENIC will engage parties from private, public, and governmental sectors in the planning process to effectively serve this diverse region.

“This new network will provide needed connectivity for communities located near the high-speed rail system starting in the Central Valley,” said Authority Chief Executive Officer Jeff Morales. “This partnership and new network will advance economic development and public benefit, while generating ancillary revenue for the high-speed rail program,” said Morales.
