Latin America: CEDIA (Ecuador), RENATA (Colombia), REUNA (Chile), RedCLARA (Latin America), RNP (Brazil)

Specific Objectives:

  • To obtain Indefeasible Right of Use (IRU) of 40 optical channels on a direct submarine cable between Europe and Brazil.
  • To deploy two upgradeable 100Gbps links for:
    • GÉANT-RedCLARA interconnection;
    • Copernicus traffic.
