Building the Internet of the future
Existing network equipment prevented Poznan Supercomputer and Networking Center from realizing the performance potential of its fiber-optic infrastructure, and made it impossible to meet the goal of offering broadband to all metropolitan area networks (MANs).
PSNC operates Poland’s domestic fiber-optic network, PIONIER, as well as the academic metropolitan area network for the city of Poznan, one of the country’s largest cities with a population of 600,000. Of them, 140,000 are students making Poznan a truly academic city.
