GTNet, the Georgia Tech data network, is an ethernet based IP network spanning the 150 buildings on the main campus in Atlanta, as well as remote campuses in Savannah, GA and Metz, France. Network Services installs, maintains, and supports GTNet from the wall plate to our internet services.
The design of GTNet includes a border router, core routers, and distribution routers which are interconnected via 10 gigabit ethernet. The buildings on the Atlanta and Savannah campuses are interconnected via gigabit ethernet as well as fast ethernet. Connectivity to the wall plate is from 10/100/1000 ethernet switches or 10/100 ethernet switches.
Internet services are purchased from transit providers as well as connections to research networks and transit peering services. Georgia Tech has peering with Peachnet, Southern Crossroads (SoX), TransitRail, Cogent, and Qwest. Depending on which connection is used, traffic may be going over a 10 gigabit, 1 gigabit, or 100 megabit link.
GTNet, though its peering with SoX, has connectivity to NLR Packetnet, Internet2 network, Oak Ridge National Labs, Energy Sciences Network (ESNet), NCREN, MREN, FLR, LONI, 3ROX, as well as other SoX participants in the SouthEast.
