Abstract

The Greek School Network (GSN) is a closed educational network that offers advanced telematic and networking services to all units of primary and secondary education schools and administration offices in Greece. The main objective of GSN is the implementation of a network infrastructure for the interconnection of the school laboratories and the provision of a wide range of network and telematic services to students and teachers. The GSN separates its telematic services to two major groups: the centralized services and the end-user services. The purpose of this paper is to describe the GSN structure, the services it provides, and its design and operational principles.
