GTAnet is Ontario’s largest, member-owned, regional high-speed research and education network. The GTAnet network provides high-speed connectivity, support and services to its member universities, colleges, teaching hospitals and cultural institutions throughout the Greater Toronto Area. Together, GTAnet’s member institutions represent more than 40 per cent of Ontario’s research yielding institutions.
GTAnet connects its members to one of two network points of presence (PoPs), located at the University of Toronto and York University, as well as maintaining ownership and operation of all switching/routing equipment at these locations. ORION peers with GTAnet at two locations, 151 Front Street, Toronto — Ontario’s main telecommunications interconnect point — and at GTAnet’s York University PoP. Through ORION, GTAnet is able to deliver high-speed network connectivity to the rest of Ontario, and the world.
