ACENET operates ten Collaboration Rooms at our member universities. These rooms are equipped with modern videoconferencing tools and are available for our research community. This easy access to high quality videoconferencing makes training, seminars, research group meetings, thesis presentations, and meetings of any type widely available to our researchers and helps eliminate the need for travel.

St. Francis Xavier University

ACENET's videoconferencing capabilities are based on the IOCOM technology which can communicate with both AccessGrid and H.323 based technologies. ACENET provides the central server infrastructure for all IOCOM sites within Compute Canada. Our IOCOM server has been federated with our AccessGrid venueserver removing the barriers to the easy communication between sites using either flavor of the technology.
