Research Networks


The Internet2 Network provides the U.S. Research and education community with a dynamic, innovative and cost effective hybrid-optical and packet network to meet the community's special needs.

CSSD connects Pitt's researchers and educators to Internet2 and its member communities through the Pittsburgh GigaPop. The Three Rivers Optical Exchange (3Rox) is a regional network aggregation point, providing high speed network access to research and commodity networks.
