New Higher-capacity Transatlantic Internet Links Between Europe and the USA To Drive Scientific Research and Collaboration
ACE, GÉANT and national research & education networks join forces to deliver high speed infrastructure
Cambridge, UK, 29 September 2011 – Researchers and students across Europe and the US will soon be able to work in closer partnership following a major expansion in transatlantic research network capacity delivered by the pan-European GÉANT network and America Connects to Europe (ACE), a collaboration between Internet2, Indiana University GlobalNOC, DANTE and NYSERnet.
New network links will significantly enhance the ability of European researchers to collaborate and exchange large volumes of data with colleagues in the United States in vital projects in areas as diverse as particle physics, radio astronomy and medical research.
