The service is delivered on our dedicated CDS IP Network, which is separate from the CANARIE Network that provides connectivity between Canada’s provinces and territories, and to global research and education networks. CDS is made possible by our direct peering relationships with content providers through public Internet Exchange Points (IXPs) or private links.
* CANARIE’s CDS is currently not available to institutions connected to ORION, Yukon University, and Aurora College. Institutions connected to ORION must work directly with ORION to peer with content delivery networks.
