The VCE is structured into three sections:
1. ACE Public Area: a set of static pages where unrestricted information is published; this is mainly for citizen awareness.
Community Area: accessible by registration for researchers of
Organisations interested in ACE research, but outside the ACE
Consortium. It contains relevant information on antenna research
(coming also from ACE) and is very useful to widen the impact beyond
Network Area: accessible by username/password for the researchers
involved in the Network. It contains restricted information and
provides a set of tailored services for the network management.
special care has been devoted to the management of the intellectual
property rights during dissemination, when the information from the ACE
Network Area is transferred to the ACE Community or ACE Public Areas.
Moreover, the VCE adopt the latest technologies (such as Encryption, SSL, etc.) to protect the restricted information.
