Fondation RESTENA

The RESTENA ("Réseau Téléinformatique de l’Education Nationale et de la Recherche") Foundation operates the National Research and Education Network (NREN) in Luxembourg. It supports the scientific development by providing and maintaining high quality network infrastructures of 1-10 Gbit/s and associated services for the needs of education and research in Luxembourg, ranging from primary schools to the University of Luxembourg and public/private research centres.

RESTENA is an integrated part of the backbone network GéANT on an international level, a state-of-the-art network providing fast network connections, where public and private research centres can connect to more than 6000 institutions, such as other research centres, universities, scientific libraries and scientific centres, in Europe and beyond. The GéANT network does not only supply IP connectivity (IPv4 and IPv6 alike), but also offers unique services to connected institutions in form of guaranteed bandwidth, end-to-end VPN solutions, dedicated raw wavelengths across Europe, and the authentication and authorisation infrastructures eduroam and eduGAIN. The RESTENA Foundation collaborates closely and can disseminate to all other NRENs in Europe and world-wide and has links to standardisation organisations such as the IETF.

A second mission of the RESTENA Foundation is the coordination of Internet services, where it operates the registry for the top-level domain .LU. Here it assures the top-level domain name management and actively contributes to the development of a stable and secure national Internet. RESTENA DNS Services are always at the forefront of technology, e.g. providing DNSSEC capabilities for its customers and the support of DANE TLSA records for its own services. As a member of ICANN and CENTR, DNS.LU is very well integrated in the world-wide community of DNS top-level domain operators.
