Corporation for Research and Educational Networking


(CREN) The non-profit member organisation, consisting of over 220 universities, colleges and research organisations, that was responsible for providing networking service to BITNET and CSNET users. CREN was formed in October 1989, combining BITNET and CSNET under one authority.

CREN continued to run BITNET after CSNET ceased operating, but following the rapid rise of TCP/IP networks in the early 1990s, CREN formally disbanded itself on 2003-01-10.
