RENATER network

Network availability (weather map):

Metropolitan France - Ile-de-France region - Overseas 


The RENATER network offers the following:

  • An architecture based on dark fibre and DWDM hardware, for rapid speed upgrades.
  • General deployment of 10 Gbit Ethernet technology in the network and selected nx100 Gbit/s optical transmission links.
  • A fully meshed architecture covering all network points of presence.
  • The ability to meet the very high speed requirements of major research projects by establishing end-to-end optical transmission links between points of presence.

Key figures

  • 12,000 km of optical fibre
  • 72 points of presence (RENATER nodes)
  • 150 wavelengths: 10 to 200 Gbit/s
