Upgrade of the backup connection for the Anella Científica at CATNIX

29-06-2017

On June 16, the backup connection to the Catalonia Neutral Internet Exchange Point (CATNIX) for the Anella Científica has been upgraded at Itconic from 2 Gbps to 10 Gbps.

This fiber connection is used as a backup for the primary connection that the Anella Científca has at Campus Nord, also at 10 Gbps, and it's useful in case of an eventual drop of the main peering. With the upgrade from 2 Gbps to 10 Gbps, the capacity of the main link and the backup link is the same.

The upgrade has been done during the renewal of the core equipment of the Anella Científica.
