AARNet4 is scalable and flexible, providing campuses with new ways to connect to and use the network.
Connectivity options enable our customers to architect smart, dynamic networks that make the best use of AARNet4’s new capabilities. We’ve designed AARNet4 to support the wide-ranging needs of Australia’s research and education sector into the future.
AARNet4 delivers new capabilities, such as virtual private networks (VPNs) between customer sites, virtual private clouds including services from public cloud providers and support for AARNet’s own cloud- based file sharing and Unified Communications products.
All AARNet4 network services are delivered from our points of presence (PoPs) to an AARNet Network Termination Unit (NTU), which can operate at 1 gigabit per second (Gbps) or 10 gigabits per second, with higher speeds planned for the future.

It is useful when many sites need to be interconnected, such as when connecting data centres and cloud services to a university’s network, and connecting campuses and facilities across vast distances, for example, interstate.
