Scientific Description
Deployed in the early 90s, the National Telecommunications Network for Technology, Education and Research, RENATER, provides national and international connectivity via the GÉANT network, IP transit and SFINX (a IXP managed by RENATER) to more than 1,300 sites of educational and research institutions in Metropolitan France and in the overseas territories, amounting to 160,000 researchers and 2.2 million students. As a Metropolitan Infrastructure RENATER provides:
• An architecture based on dark fibre and DWDM equipment.
• The widespread use of 10 Gigabit Ethernet in networks.
• A complete mesh of all network points of presence.
• The ability to meet the very high speed requirements of major research
projects by establishing end to end optical paths.
Overseas Infrastructure
Territorial continuity is very important and connecting departments and communities overseas is one of the major missions of the RENATER Group.
