Network infrastructure

DeiC develops and runs forskningsnettet (the National Research and Education Network of Denmark). Forskningsnettet is a national network infrastructure connecting the universities and research institutions with a high speed and high capacity internet infrastructure, thereby supporting research and cooperation. Forskningsnettet also supplies connections to other national and international networks.

In addition to the network infrastructure DeiC also offers a wide range of other network related services. This includes coordination of the global wireless network for research and education, eduroam. 

Universities, research institutions and other public institutions and Danish companies with a considerable amount of research activities may connect to forskningsnettet. 


The Danish Research Network has its own fiber infrastructure with 1 Gbps and 10 Gbps Ethernet connections.
