Network & Access
Dedicated service subject to a contribution to cover costs
GARR NOC (Network Operations Center) is responsible for the network management and operations, the reporting service, the fault management, the activation of new connections, the collection and publication of statistical data of traffic.
GARR provides, on demand, end-to-end connectivity services to establish direct physical or virtual connections between two or more locations in order to geographically extend their data centres or tosegregate specific application data and share resources in a transparent way. According to the technical requirements, different types of service can be provided: end-to-end circuits (based on the use of the DWDM transmission network with very low latency and with link capacities up to 100 Gbps), L2-VPN and L3- VPNs, or virtual private networks of level 2 or level 3, created by using IP/MPLS technology.
All organisations connected to GARR can request customized solutions based on their needs and receive the service and relative evaluation of the contribution to cover costs.
GINS monitoring system(GARR Integrated Networking Suite) includes tools for diagnosing and tracing problems of the network infrastructure and services as well as traffic monitoring systems. GINS publishes public statistics online and customised access for individual organisations.
IPv4 and IPv6 ADDRESSES
GARR LIR (Local Internet Registry ) is the service that assigns IPv4 and IPv6 networks to users. The availability of public IP addresses makes possible for institutions to create an open network directly visible from national and international Internet destinations, with the ability to host services (websites, mail, videoconference) and to make each user individually present on the network.
Upon request, GARR offers a secondary DNS service for institutions. For the registration of a .it domain it is necessary to have at least 2 DNS (primary, secondary). Institutions are guaranteed support for DNS configuration both during activation and for all maintenance operations.
All GARR users can register .it and .eu domain names for free. The responsible service is GARR NIC (Network Information Centre).
VOIP NUMBERING SPACE
With NRENUM, GARR offers the possibility to request numbering spaces with an Italian prefix under the NRENum tree, or + 39.nrenum.net. All organisations connected to the GARR network can request it.
