Light paths for research
Customise your network connections
Light paths: for data storage, big data and processing power
SURFnet supports researchers in pioneering research by contributing ICT solutions. Researchers use light paths for data storage, sending big data and for employing processing power, etc. You can use light paths to tailor the network and collaborative infrastructure to your research requirements. In addition, you can use light paths for multidisciplinary, data intensive research. Support4Research supports researchers who want to use light paths.
Request a light path
Would you like to set up a light path? Please contact your institution's ICT department. If two researchers at different institutions would like to set up a light path they should each approach the ICT department of their own institution. These ICT departments will arrange a light path between the workspaces of both researchers.
