What is Access Grid?
Access Grid is open-source collaboration and video conferencing software that takes advantage of high-speed research networks. As a part of the SHARCNET, we have an Access Grid Node, that allows for connection to more than 3 sites with screen sharing and video conferencing. It is primarily used for research and grid computing based activities. Due to the requirement of being on the high speed research network and the complexity of Access Grid, this technology is used to connect to specific users at specific research sites.
