L-Università ta' Malta - Malta

The University IT Services manages the Maltese National Research & Education Network (NREN) providing access to the GÉANT network to local research and education institutions. GÉANT, a project co-funded by the European Commission, is the pan-European research and education network connecting over 50 million users in over 10,000 institutions across 40 European countries. GÉANT is a high capacity network that uses advanced techniques to overcome limitations of commercial networks to cater for a wide range of requirements: from bulk data transfer to the most demanding high quality interactive applications. The network enables research and education applications that require transfer of high-definition digital content and interaction in real-time, such as videoconferencing, virtual laboratories, multimedia interactive courses and grid applications.
