A new ISP connection for the NorNet Core site on Svalbard

Now, the NorNet Core site at the Universitetet på Svalbard (UNIS) in Longyearbyen has been connected to Telenor as its second ISP. Establishing this connection has been a challenging and time-consuming task, due to the very remote location of Longyearbyen at 78.2°N. But now, the research nodes at the UNIS site provide researchers the northernmost multi-homed research endpoints, in a distance of just about 1300 km from the North Pole.
