IP Connectivity

Home > The Network > IP Connectivity

Access to the general Internet is a basic requirement for education and research in Ireland and it is a core part of the services HEAnet provides. There are no traffic filters in the core of the network and any such filtering or restrictions to any sites are left to the individual client.

HEAnet has excellent connectivity to both academic and commercial sites through a variety of transit providers.

The HEAnet network (for unicast and multicast routing) has been dual-stacked (providing both IPv4 & IPv6 connectivity) since 2003 and is well equipped to deal with the expanding and evolving needs of today’s users.
