GN4-3N’s mission is to deliver unconstrained access at higher minimum capacity thresholds, highest levels of security across the network, and equal access to clouds and other services in the European research area and beyond. It will also increase network footprint, future proof connection speeds and stimulate the market in cross-border communications infrastructure while decreasing the digital divide.
