Section one: USERS/CLIENTS In this section, reference is made to the various levels of education. In using these, please refer to the ISCED classification scheme; more information about this scheme is at http://www.terena.nl/compendium/faq.html#isced). For the purposes of this Survey, ‘University’ level should correspond to ISCED levels 5 and 6; ‘higher/further education’ corresponds to ISCED level 4; ‘secondary education’ corresponds to ISCED levels 2 and 3 and ‘primary education’ to ISCED level 1. 1.1 Please give an estimate of the percentage of the institutions in each category in your country that are served by your NREN (even if not all institutions receive the same services): Type of institution Are you allowed to serve this type of institution? [Yes | No ] % of all institutions of this type in your country served by your NREN:

Remarks or further information regarding section one:

Section two: NETWORK In earlier years, we wanted information here about the part of your network where aggregate traffic flows, not the access circuits. This year, we would like to receive information about the entire network that is managed by your organisation, excluding links outside your national territory. 2.1 What is the number of PoPs on your network? (A PoP is defined here as a point on the NREN backbone which can connect client networks or aggregations of client networks such as MANs, or external networks.) What is the number of managed sites on your network? (i.e. the number of sites where you manage routing or switching equipment.)

NREN NETWORK

Customer Connections

T1 T2

T3 T4

ALL EXTERNAL NETWORKS

T1 – all traffic from customer sites T2 – all traffic to customer sites T3 – all traffic to external networks T4 – all traffic to the NREN backbone External traffic = all traffic to GÉANT, the Commercial Internet, Internet exchanges, etc. (made up of T3 and T4 above)

Remarks or further information regarding section four: Section five: SERVICES

Detailed information sharing and collaboration is becoming more and more important for many NRENs. The purpose of the questions in this section is to give interested NRENs a first idea of who is doing what. It can be used by others as a starting point for a further exchange of information, for example within the framework of the TERENA Task Forces or the Joint Research Activities in the GN2 project. Note that many questions are the same as those of last year – in those cases, we only ask you to double-check that the information we have is still correct.
