The basis of the e-Infrastructure is the Hungarian reseaqrch network, which is directly connected to the European research backbone network (GÉANT) and allows,through GÉANT, also global access. Most important features (wrt. the Hungarian network): gigabit (in the backbone and at the international access point 10 Gbit/sec) transmission speed, some 700 major access points in almost 500 institutions, serving about 700.000 users. GÉANT and the NRENs (National Research and Education Networks) of 36 European countries enable the Hungarian users to acceess some 40 millions of European partners involved in research and education, while the global amount of accessible researchers and academics is a few times higher.
