Launched in March 2005, under the governance of Ministry of Higher Education (MoHE) and management of Malaysian Digital Economy (MDEC), formally known as the Multimedia Development Corporation, 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) nationwide, it has linked 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 hospitals and a few research institutes in the country. MYREN continues to attract research institutes, private universities, colleges and hospitals in Malaysia.
MYREN is linked to other National Research and Education Networks (NRENs) via the Trans-Eurasia Information Network (TEIN4) since 2006 which offers Asia Pacific a gateway for global collaboration, enabling over 50 million users and more than 8000 research and academic centers to participate in joint projects with peers in Asia, Europe, United States and other continents.
