Increased Membership and Advanced Technologies Drive Continued Success

August 2014 represents OSHEAN’s 15th anniversary, a milestone that represents the best of both our organization and the membership we serve. Since our inception, we’ve achieved dramatic improvements in the availability and utilization of technology among our members and their constituents. Looking back, we are reminded of our charter. Back in 1999, OSHEAN was tasked with the following:
  • Improve the state’s information infrastructure by creating an aggregation point where networks in use today can share resources and gain access to high performance networks
  • Provide greater access to a wide range of information services in the areas of health care, education, training, government and economic development;
  • Reduce the cost of government services by utilizing advanced telecommunication and information technologies to increase productivity and efficiency of operations.
Today, OSHEAN has successfully implemented 450+ fiber miles and enabled more than 125 Community Anchor Institutions to achieve groundbreaking research, improved healthcare services, innovative classroom instruction and critical life-safety upgrades. In addition, OSHEAN’s best-in-class technology solutions support the integration of new resources that prepare institutions including libraries and other non-profits to continue serving their communities for the next generation and beyond.
