Welcome to ACOnet!
ACOnet is the Austrian National Research and Education Network (NREN) for science, research, education, art and culture. It is operated by the Vienna University Computer Center, in co-operation with other universities in Austria.
ACOnet provides a nation-wide fibre optic backbone with high-performance access to international academic networks via GÉANT, as well as to the Internet. Furthermore, ACOnet offers its members various target-group-specific services to support research projects and communities.
ACOnet now has a 100G backbone
The technological renewal of our backbone network, which had been prepared over several years, and the additional ACOnet Point of Presence (PoP) Eisenstadt 2 were completed on schedule and without operational interruption in the summer of 2023. The last open issue, the new PoP Vienna 10, should also be finalized by the end of the year. This means we once again have a future-proof, flexibly expandable network infrastructure. Moreover, 100G participant connections are now possible at all major ACOnet PoPs (Graz, Innsbruck, Klagenfurt, Linz, Salzburg, Vienna).
ACOnet Annual Report 2022
Our Annual Report 2022 offers an overview (in German) of infrastructural improvements and new services, reviews of last year's events, and informative guest contributions on projects of ACOnet participants. We wish you an interesting read!
