GÉANT is Europe’s leading collaboration on network and related infrastructure and services for the benefit of research and education, contributing to Europe’s economic growth and competitiveness. We develop, deliver and promote advanced network and associated e-infrastructure services, and support innovation and knowledge-sharing amongst our members, partners and the wider research and education networking community. Together with our NREN partners, we interconnect 50 million users at 10,000 research and education institutions; and via extensive global partnerships and GÉANT-managed networking projects, reach over 100 countries worldwide.
GÉANT and our NREN partners enjoy a long–standing relationship with R&E networks in Canada and the USA, which has led to diverse transatlantic links being established in reciprocal arrangements between the two continents. In this collaborative environment, GÉANT provides a 100Gbps link to New York, along with other links provided by Internet2 and CANARIE, ESnet, Indiana University, SURF and NORDUnet, and NII/SINET (Japanese NREN) on the Advanced North Atlantic (ANA) collaboration. ANA ensures that there is abundant capacity and no single points of failure, enabling research and education traffic between the two regions to flow seamlessly.
