Project Results: GN3

  • Implementation of the pan-European academic and research network GEANT3: a hybrid high capacity network that uses an innovative combination of IP traffic and switching mechanisms and will make it possible to achieve high levels of reliability and operational flexibility.
  • This pan-European research network, operating jointly with national, regional and local networks, enables the establishment of very high capacity end to end connections, which will be made available to projects such as the LHC and research communities with the most demanding requirements, such as those of high energy physics, astrophysics, genomics, climatology, etc.
  • Connections to academic and research networks in other parts of the world, in order to achieve a global research network.
  • Joint service provision (CERT, eduGAIN, eduroam) and joint development of new services (federated optical switching, network services composition: GEMBus, etc.)
