[CT] Universities Advance High-Speed Trans-Atlantic Network 10 to 40 to 100Gbps

A partnership of institutions and national laboratories is launching a high-speed fiber optic network service as part of a sizable project to connect educators and researchers in the United States with Europe.

The group has signed with Hibernia Atlantic to use its transatlantic fiber optic cable for data communications. Indiana University, lead partner for the America Connects to Europe Project (ACE Project), said the organization will be using Hibernia’s network to connect participating universities and labs with European counterparts. Last year Indiana U received a National Science Foundation award of $4.6 million to fund this latest high-speed international network service.
