ÉANT, the pan-European gigabit research network

March 6, 2002

GÉANT is co-funded by the European Commission and replaces TEN-155, which was shut down in December 2001. GÉANT provides a gigabit backbone and advanced network services for the European research community, reaching more than 3,000 research and education institutions in more than 30 countries. GÉANT connects to North America via two 2.5 Gbps circuits; through one of these, GÉANT peers directly with Abilene. GÉANT also participates in Abilene’s International Transit Network service, allowing it to peer with many other research and education networks around the world. DANTE and many of the European NRENs that participate in GÉANT are Internet2 MoU partners.
