Description

The FEDERICA project has created a completely virtualizable infrastructure across Europe based on Gigabit Ethernet circuits, transmission equipment and computing nodes, with the objective to support experimental activities with new structures and internet protocols. The FEDERICA network has been built on the multi-gigabit infrastructure of the Academic and European Research networks. The circuits finish in points of presence of the network access (POP, the acronym of Point of Presence) from several national R+D networks (NREN, from the acronym National Research and Education Network) and from GÉANT2.

This project is cofounded by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness, in the framework of the National Plan of Scientist Research, Development and Technological Innovation ( R+D+i) 2008-2011 and the European Social Fund.
