The High Speed Research Network (HSRN) is NYU's cutting-edge, high-throughput computer network managed by NYU IT - Research Technology Services. The HSRN operates independently from NYU's enterprise network (NYU-NET) and is purpose-built to meet the escalating needs of research workflows for flexibility, low latency, and dedicated large bandwidth. The HSRN team provides additional services on top of our network infrastructure to help researchers utilize the full potential of the network, including an on-prem Kubernetes cluster, Corelink (our advanced low latency data transfer suite).  We provide direct consultations to enable NYU researchers to harness our advanced infrastructure and have helped deploy research use cases such as AR/VR, Robotics, Genomics, Chemistry, Social Media and Digital Humanities, Autonomous Systems, Smart Cities, Big Data Processing, Real Time Data Analysis, Machine Learning & AI, Quantitative Analysis (with HPC), and more.
