Our Odin network service provides connection to the University network backbone, interconnections between department / college networks and connection to the internet via Janet. This can also include connection of accommodation and data centre annexe networks using Layer 2 adjacency.
Connection speeds of 2Gbps, 10Gbps and 40Gbps are available.
Option 1: The baseline service, operating at 2Gbps, takes a single connection from your internal network to an active device ("FroDo") that, almost always, has two links to two core routers. Option 1 can also be provided at 10Gbps or 40Gbps, at extra cost.
Option 2: The enhanced resilience service, operating at 2/10/40Gbps, enables you to make two connections from your network to two core routers via two separate FroDos.
Further flexibility and resilience are available via our Ettin service which offers dynamic routing of IPv4 prefixes via more than one FroDo in an active/standby configuration.
