Consortium GARR

Description GARR is the Italian Research and Education Telecommunications Network. It provides high-bandwidth connectivity, advanced services and e-Infrastructures support, thus enabling the Italian Research and Academic community to collaborate worldwide. Based on fibres and the most advanced optical transmission technologies, the GARR-X Network covers the whole national territory. As of today, it provides ultrabroadband connectivity (up to 10Gbps for single access) to over 500 user sites, including research institutes, laboratories, observatories and other research facilities, supercomputing centers, universities, medical research and healthcare centres, cultural institutions, livestock health research institutes, state libraries and archives, museums and schools. Advanced network and ICT services, including Optical and Virtual Private Networks, security and identity management, IP and domain registration services, mirror, multivideoconferencing, multimedia support, and a set of pilot cloud services are also offered to the user community, together with consulting and tailored support in specific projects. Moreover, GARR is involved in several R&D activities focusing on novel network services and technologies, Future Internet and Cloud. The GARR network is operated by the Consortium GARR, a non-profit organization founded under the aegis of the Ministry of Education and Scientific Research. The founding Members are: CNR, ENEA, INFN and Fondazione CRUI on behalf of the Italian Universities. The infrastructure is active since 1991, the last major upgrade ending in 2013 (GARR-X).
