This circuit is a specific type of virtual circuit which offers RedIRIS affiliated institutions that require it an optical circuit of 10Gbps exclusively intended for carrying out their tasks.
Any institutions that require this service must send a request which will be evaluated by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness. The latter is responsible for deciding whether or not it will cover the cost of providing such a service.
The connection offered by RedIRIS can be set up:
- Between two RedIRIS affiliated institutions
- Between a RedIRIS affiliated institution and another institution affiliated to one of the European national academic networks that use the pan-European academic network GÉANT.
- Between a RedIRIS affiliated institution and another institution affiliated to one of the European international academic networks (outside Europe).
