For when shared IP services can't provide the capacity or performance needed, GÉANT's point-to-point services provide the perfect solution.
The GÉANT Plus service allows national research and education networking (NREN) organisations to request point-to-point Ethernet circuits between end-points at GÉANT PoPs (points of presence). Circuits can be established to any European NREN.
GÉANT Lambda provides full wavelengths at up to 100Gbps to support NREN users with particularly demanding network requirements. The service provides transparent 10Gbps, or 100Gbps wavelengths between GÉANT PoPs. GÉANT Lambda services can be provided unprotected or restored using GMPLS (Generalised Multiprotocol Label Switching) signalling.
GÉANT Open allows NRENs and approved commercial organisations to exchange connectivity in a highly efficient and flexible manner. The service uses shared facilities to which all users can connect their own circuits at either 100Gbps, 10Gbps or 1Gbps, and they can then request interconnections with any other participant to provide inter-organisation connectivity.
As a first within the European research and education community, approved commercial organisations will be able to connect to GÉANT Open. This will help research and education users to access a wide variety of commercial third parties as part of private-public research projects.
