NTL Ireland has been chosen to provide a cross-border business communication link between Dublin and Belfast for Irish research and education network HEAnet and its British counterpoint JANET.

The high-speed connection allows HEAnet to link with students, staff and researchers in Northern Ireland and Britain.

HEAnet and JANET on-line users will now be able to co-operate on high-speed applications such as real-time modelling, satellite feed, supercomputing, and advanced Computer Aided Design.

Commenting on the partnership, Liam Duggan, Commercial Director, Business Division of NTL Ireland said: "We are delighted to provide HEAnet with the benefits that derive from using our advanced digital fibre optic network throughout the Republic of Ireland and connecting to JANET in the UK.

"This is a all-Ireland initiative and demonstrates NTL's proven capability of providing first class solutions to organisations such as HEAnet with sites across the Republic of Ireland," Duggan added.

Victor Reijs, Network Development Manager from HEAnet said: "An important factor in HEAnet choosing NTL was their proven cross-border capability to provide and manage a secure infrastructure."
