​​​​How GTS works​

GTS provides dynamically provisioned network environments consisting of computational servers, data transport circuits, and switching/forwarding elements.

These testbeds can be scheduled in advance to coordinate testbed experiments with other non-GTS activities, and testbed components can be selected from any of the GEANT core points of presence that have GTS services available. Each testbed constitutes an isolated and insulated virtual environment that can function autonomously from other testbeds or other production services.​​
