What is Point-to-Point?
Point-to-Point is a service provisioned by HEAnet which allows institutions to link remote sites and campuses into a single Local Area Network.
It is an established, cost-effective service of substantial use to Irish educational and research facilities which have multiple locations, campuses or remote buildings.
A Point-to-Point link aids in the smooth delivery of HEAnet services and can be an asset to any institution.
