The commercial internet (commodity internet)–or Public Connectivity- service for RedCLARA’s member National Research and Education Networks (NREN) is an IPv4 and IPv6 traffic exchange/peering, for which RedCLARA provides a virtual circuit between a router located in its backbone in one or more border points (such as Miami, Sao Paulo, Santiago, etc.) and the NREN’s header router.
The interconnection model between RedCLARA and the NREN guarantees the bandwidth up to the point of exchange with commercial internet, where the network is converted into the Best Effort Model given the conditions of global providers of commercial internet.
Through its NOC – Network Operations Centre – RedCLARA provides permanent support (24 hours a day, 365 days a year) and regularly provides documentation referred to the service status of your network.
RedCLARA provides this service only for its member NRENs, so they can, in turn, offer it to their member institutions. For greater transparency, the service is charged according to the level of bandwidth use, the link’s capacity and the existence or absence of a NOC in the NREN.
Best Effort Model
The Best Effort delivery model or mechanism refers to a type of network service in which it cannot be guaranteed that the data will reach their destination and where a specific quality of service (QoS) in their communications cannot be offered. In a best effort network all users receive the best possible service at that moment, which means that they will receive different bandwidths and response times depending on the volume of traffic in the local network.
