RCTS IP

Connectivity

RCTS IP is the main and oldest RCTS connectivity service. This service ensures direct communication between all entities connected to the network and the entire Internet, secured via connection to GigaPix – an IP traffic exchange platform also operated by FCCN – to GÉANT, the European academic network, and to the Spanish academic network, RedIRIS.

Connection to the GÉANT network also provides access to academic networks on other continents, namely RedClara (Latin America), TEIN3 (Asia and Pacific), Internet2 (North America) and ORIENT (China).

The performance of high-demand content access is guaranteed using nodes local to the RCTS from the most popular CDN’s (Content Delivery Networks).

FEATURES

The RCTS IP service covers a range of broadband access between 100Mbit/s and 10Gbit/s, supporting the v4 and v6 versions of the IP protocol, in Unicast and Multicast, with multiple levels of redundancy.

All other services and applications are provided through the RCTS IP service, whether they are related to collaboration, knowledge, computing or security.
