Our mission

I-Light is a unique collaboration among Indiana colleges and universities, state government, and private sector broadband providers.

Member sites connect to I-Light at speeds starting at 1 Gigabit to 10 Gigabits per second. The I-Light team provides members with responsive, expert support and can provide even larger, on-demand connections between research groups when needed.

I-Light enables a variety of capabilities such as:

  • High-quality video connections
  • Exchange of large data files
  • Access to supercomputers and scientific data storage facilities
  • Multi-campus collaborative research projects
  • High-definition learning tools such as telepresence

I-Light Cyberinfrastructure (CI) Plan

The goal of our CI Plan is to ensure that the advanced networking needs of I-Light researchers are met with minimal friction. To meet this goal, I-Light manages a continuous process of needs assessment, infrastructure/capacity/financial planning, upgrade implementation, and operational support.
