Verizon Communications has delivered a broadband-based networking solution to JANET, the provider of the UK's education and research network.

As a result of the deployment, members of UK academia can now collaborate online using ultra-fast broadband connections.

The network will enable teachers and students at universities, colleges, schools and research councils to access and share information and rich media over the internet.

JANET says the platform can not only support the UK's educational needs today, but will also provide "a foundation on which future innovative educational services can be offered".

"Verizon is an innovative communications company with a long history of devising advanced solutions for our customers around the world," said Michael Bauer, Director of European Network Planning for Verizon.

"We have a great opportunity to share our engineering and network expertise with JANET, and this teamwork gives the UK academic community an opportunity to use the latest technology available in the marketplace."

Jeremy Sharp, Head of JANET's Strategic Technologies division, said that at a time when research and education is being asked to do more with less, this is "a great example of how technology can not only be innovative, but a power innovation".
