  • Description of the service

The connectivity service provides affiliated institutions with high performance access to the Science and Technology Network of Galicia (RECETGA). This service will grant the user centre privileged access to resources such as Internet connectivity offered not only at a regional level, but also at national and international levels (RECETGA, RedIris, GEANT, Internet2, Red Clara).

CESGA manages RECETGA and its interconnection to the Spanish Research Network (RedIris NREN). The connectivity service is designed to provide a robust solution to the requirements of the majority of the researchers and teachers providing innovative services that are commonly available on research networks (IPv6, multicast, Eduroam, VPNs, circuits under demand, access to research networks, etc).

CESGA provides IP routing based on IPv4 and IPv6 protocols with "dual-stack" configuration through RECETGA. The connectivity service includes this technology. In order to use it, the institution must have IPv4 and/or IPv6 addressing (its own or provided by CESGA).

In addition, RECETGA's core network supports Jumbo Frames (MTU of 9000 bytes) as well as multicast traffic distribution.

Two options are available in order to proceed with the connection to RECETGA:

Connect directly to a core node of RECETGA (recommended).
Connect through an existing affiliated institution. In this case, an agreement must be made between the interested parties regarding the use of the infrastructures and traffic in transit.

The candidate institution is responsible for managing their access link from the institution to the nearest RECETGA core node.
