Secondary location accessibility

Connect your other locations to the SURFnet network, too

In addition to your primary location, you can also easily connect other locations of your institution to the SURFnet network. SURF will then create a point of presence (PoP) at these secondary locations.

SURFnet services at secondary locations

Alongside an existing basic connection at your institution's primary location, SURFnet services can also be provided at other secondary locations. To do so, SURF sets up a PoP at the secondary location, including active SURF equipment and optical fibres. There are two types of secondary location connections:

  • Inter-City: the secondary location lies in the Netherlands but outside the municipal borders of the primary location.
  • Inner-City: the secondary location lies in the Netherlands inside the municipal borders of the primary location.

SURFnet services in data centres

SURFnet services can also be provided in data centres. This solution allows your institution to locate its infrastructure in a data centre, while the infrastructure remains optimally connected to the institutional network. To do this, SURF sets up a PoP in a data centre. In principle, a connection could be set up in every data centre in the Netherlands.
