In recent years, Louisiana has taken giant strides in positioning itself as a large scale IT, IT Sciences and Biosciences player.

A $40 million investment by the state in the Louisiana Optical Network Initiative (LONI) allowed for the connection of North Louisiana to at least 5 supercomputers located at major research institutions around the state. The speed of which is 40 billion bits of data per second allowing for the opportunity to play a major role in the National Lambda Rail (NLR).

Louisiana has made major research advancements in concert with the LONI by operating three IT Incubators in the state:

  • Louisiana Tech University Technology Incubator (LTTI)
  • Louisiana Technology Incubator for Entrepreneurial Success at ULL
  • Louisiana Business Technology Center

LONI also hosts the Louisiana Immersive Technology Enterprise (LITE). You can find more information about LITE here.
