ICN2 is now connected to CSUC’s Anella Científica

The Anella Científica is a flexible and reliable infrastructure that connects a wide range of institutions involved in the world of R&D and innovation. 

Since May 2016 ICN2 is connected to CSUC’s Anella Científica. The Consorci de Serveis Universitaris de Catalunya (CSUC) shares academic, scientific, library, transfer of knowledge and management services to associated entities to improve effectiveness and efficiency by enhancing synergies and economies of scale. The Anella Científica is a flexible and reliable infrastructure that connects a wide range of institutions involved in the world of R&D and innovation. 

The backbone of the Anella Científica is 10 Gbit/s Ethernet technology. It has two points of presence, located in Barcelona, which provide redundancy and improve the reliability of communications. The institutions are connected at different speeds, depending on their needs. In addition to connectivity with different speeds and modes of connection, the Anella Científica offers many associated services.

The ICN2 Information Technologies Department underlines that the Anella Científica provides various services that improve network use. It also will make possible the connection of ICN2 to Eduroam service, which allows participating institutions to connect to the Internet when visiting other participating institutions by simply opening their laptop and entering the same username and password used at their own institution.
