Internet2, NORDUnet, CANARIE, and SURFnet, four advanced Research and Education (R&E) Networks from both sides of the North Atlantic Ocean, today announced the completion of a collaborative advanced network, called ANA-200G, that spans the North Atlantic, enabling R&E users to transfer data between North America and Europe at speeds that were previously only possible within the continents.
NORDUnet is present at this year's Armada fair at KTH, Stockholm on 18-19 November meeting students on the outlook for exciting potential employers for degree projects, summer jobs, or even a permanent job after finishing their degrees. The Armada fair connects approx. 150 exhibiting companies and organisations with 10,000 students.
The booth will be primarily be manned by staff from the NORDUnet NOC. You can find us here
NORDUnet today announced the completion of a major upgrade of its European optical network footprint in response to the growing traffic requirements of the Nordic NRENs and the Nordic research and education community.
With a deployment of an 88-channel, 100G optical transport network, NORDUnet interconnects the Nordic NRENs as well as major European transit hubs with a flexible, high-capacity network with OTN capabilities.
The European R&E network backbone GÉANT has made an agreement with the US R&E network ESnet (the US Department of Energy’s Energy Sciences Network) to deliver three 100Gbps networks links across Europe, connecting the ESnet points-of-presence in Geneva, London, and Amsterdam.
Together with new ESnet trans-Atlantic infrastructure, the 100Gbps European links will greatly improve collaboration opportunities between US and European research facilities, thanks to fast connectivity and resilience vital for big data uses.
TERENA and DANTE have joined forces to become the GÉANT Association. TERENA's activities to support collaboration, innovation and knowledge sharing for the benefit of research and education continue in the work of the GÉANT Association. Information about these activities will remain available via this website until a full GÉANT Association website can be created. In the meantime, for a brief overview of the GÉANT Association's work, membership, statutes and contacts, please visit the GÉANT Association website.
New Zealand research & education network REANNZ deploys world’s first 100Gbps research network across the Pacific. Distance is being eliminated with a demonstration of the world’s longest distance 100Gbps research network connection, showcasing New Zealand’s future capacity on the Southern Cross cable, at the REANNZ-hosted GLIF 2014 conference in Queenstown.
