DeiC offers closed point-to-point connections to support institutions with remote campuses and facilities.
The closed point-to-point connections are based on the optical infrastructure in the national backbone. This makes it possible to deliver the closed connections much cheaper than the institutions may otherwise obtain.
In addition to the price advantage, the point-to-point connections also have a range of other attractive properties:
- The focus is on transmission quality and performance through hands-on control of all parts of the network, including own black fibers, amplifiers and dedicated network elements.
- No overbooking of backbone and equipment.
- Continuous monitoring of quality and uptime, published in detail.
- Price independent of traffic volume.
- Connections that may be used effectively to consolidate server rooms and support time-critical services like voice, video and storage networks.
- Traffic separation as part of the service. This makes it possible for the institutions to have internet and several types of intranets for the remote locations without having to build an expensive MPLS structure on their own.
- It is also possible to have your own VLAN and/or MPLS structure using the research network as backbone.
The vast majority of the connections in the optical network today are internal closed connections, so this service takes up more channels than the classic internet supply.
