Jump to: navigation, search

The main i2BASQUE infrastructure is the communications network. It consists of eight POPs connected by 2.5 Gbps SDH links and dark fiber links, and four additional dark fiber links to connect certain corporative networks out of reach for the POPs.

i2BASQUE provides corporative RDI agent networks in the Basque Country with fiber optic Gigabit Ethernet interface connections. It also serves as access path to RedIRIS Academic Network, with which it shares access requirements to become a user of said services.

All corporative network services are the exclusive responsibility of each entity. The use of i2BASQUE and RedIRIS resources is described in a number of documents covering Membership and Use Policies for said networks.

Medium-term target: dark fiber plant, lambdas, separation of users according to network use. Packet switching for normal users, circuit switching for large users.

Further information on available resources and i2BASQUE membership and connection procedures can be found in the Communications Manual.
