DANTE pushing towards world’s first 100G transatlantic network for research and education

Call for collaborative partners in ground-breaking transatlantic trials.

DANTE, representing the pan-European GÉANT network, and the America Connects to Europe project (ACE), managed by Indiana University, have launched a Prior Information Notice (PIN) to progress the implementation of the first ever 100G (gigabits per second) transatlantic links for the research and education community.

Whereas big research projects are already benefiting from the superfast 100G speeds presently being rolled out across the GÉANT network, it is DANTE’s view that data flows may suffer in the near future once they reach the Atlantic. Between them GÉANT and ACE already offer over 80Gbps of transatlantic connectivity, however this is comprised of multiple 10G links and will lead to bottlenecks in the future for those 100G users. For that reason, DANTE aims to replace these over time with multiple 100G links, ensuring that partners in large research projects in areas such as radio astronomy, global earth observation, medical research and particle physics continue to benefit from the best available connectivity.
