Who Are We?

THE MALAYSIAN RESEARCH & EDUCATION NETWORK (MYREN)

Launched in March 2005, under the current governance of Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) and management of Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC), the Malaysian Research & Education Network (MYREN) enables high speed dedicated connectivity to the education sector while expanding research capability in Malaysia.

A community managed network through its 7 regional Point of Presence (PoPs), it links to over 800 thousands researchers, academicians and students in Malaysia enabling closer collaboration to underpin critical applications, education and research activities across the country. MYREN has thus far connected all public universities, private universities, all polytechnics and college communities, a few teaching hospitals.
