GÉANT extends ESnet trans-Atlantic connectivity with three high-speed links across Europe

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.
