Our innovative, hybrid network
Opening up new possibilities and connecting us like never before.
Next generation networking
We are at the dawn of a new age of networking, where technologies such as software-defined networking, SD-WAN, HPC and cloud compute are coming together against a backdrop of increasing cyber security and digital sustainability concerns. These technologies and associated challenges will redefine how network communication services are delivered across education and research.
To meet these challenges, we're working with suppliers to explore new ways to evolve Janet into a hybrid network, extending connectivity to existing services beyond fibre infrastructure via 4G and 5G cellular technology.
