Advanced state-of-the-art high-bandwidth connectivity from Europe to other world regions

Improving global connectivity has been a continuous effort and GEANT now has 12Gbps connectivity to North America, and 2.5Gbps to Japan. Additional connections to GEANT have been established to the Southern Mediterranean through the EUMEDCONNECT project. The first interconnection circuit to GEANT from ALICE (America Latina Interconectada con Europa), the Latin American research network, was established on 1 September 2004. Connection to South Africa was also established, on 26 October 2004.

Work is also underway to establish additional connections to GEANT for NRENs from the Asia-Pacific region (through TEIN2).
