School selection criteria

School selection criteria

In Italy, the distribution of primary schools is uniform with respect to population distribution, whereas secondary schools generally tend to concentrate in larger municipalities.

In the 18 cities where GARR-X Progress will develop its points of presence, about 260 school buildings (for a total of 380 schools) will be connected.

 

These schools were selected on the basis of technical criteria, including:

  • location in an urban area;
  • proximity to a GARR PoP (i.e. within 15 Km) or a telco telehouse offering fiber connectivity (2 Km) or a GARR member institution (e.g. University) already connected to the GARR network.

The application of these criteria allowed the maximal number of schools to be connected by the project.
