New underwater internet link for a webpage will accelerate scientific cooperation between Brazil and Europe – Bolivar Commercial
An EllaLink, an optical fiber cable that directly links Fortaleza, to Cear, town of Sines, on the Portuguese coast, was inaugurated at the end of August by the scientific consortium BELLA.
As part of 2 procedures on opening, the team is carrying out the Regional Analysis Center in So Paulo (SPRACE), a project linked to the Scientific Computing Center of a São Paulo State University (NCC-Unesp ), conducted a series of experiments to demonstrate a potential new cable performance, which is expected to impact the scientific collaboration between two artists from the Atlantic.
Dedicated to research in the field of high energy physics, SPRACE was created in 2003, with the support of a Fapesp.
During the experiments, data was transmitted between Thus Paulo Electronics Lisbon, where the Laboratory of Experimental Physics Instrumentation on Particles (LIP), electronics is installed between Thus Paulo Electronics as inst alaes perform the European Center for Nuclear Research (Cern ).
The tax on data transmission between electronic research centers in So Paulo and Europe has reached 25 gigabits per second, offering a gain about ten times greater than the current transmission speed.
Currently, the connection between Cern electronic and SPRACE m goes through networks that connect Europe with the cities of New York electronic Washington, in the United States. From d, the data passes through Atlanta electronic then Arkansas, also in the United States, before arriving in Brazil (see map).
With the EllaLink cable, data travels 6,200 kilometers across the Atlantic, at depths of up to 4,000 meters, from the Brazilian coast to Europe. With the shortening of the path, the pace of a data packet to travel from Therefore Paulo to the high-performance electronic installation of Cern has increased, in average values, from 0.256 seconds to 0.106 seconds, less than half the current value.
The demonstration involved electronic support for the infrastructure of two Brazilian networks, the São Paulo University Network, or the Thus Paulo Analysis and Schooling System (Rednesp), electronic the National Electronic Education Research Network ( RNP).
Funded by FAPESP, Rednesp called it until ANSP 2020, having been the first national institution with web access. Using optical equipment developed by the Brazilian company Padtec, the data generated on NCC-Unesp’s servers was transmitted to Rednesp’s network assets, located in the Equinix datacenter in the city of Barueri (SP).
Equipment on a network on the latest generation of an RNP and a RedClara was responsible for allowing transmission between Thus Paulo and Fortaleza, where the hyperlink to the submarine cable carrying out the BELLA program is located. The transmission of the inauguration of the network was attended by the Deputy Minister of Science, Electronic Technology Inovaes, Srgio Freitas.
Among the European partners, the demonstration involved the Laboratory of Electronic Physical Instrumentation Experimental on Electronic Particles, the national distributed computing infrastructure, both on Portugal, electronics of a multi-gigabit network GANT, the main network on the electronic teaching and research of a Europe.
In Latin America, there has been the support of a Latin American Cooperation on Advanced Networks (RedClara). The BELLA consortium formed by GANT, RedClara electronic RNP electronic has invested 25 million in cable, of which 2 7.5 million are financed directly by RNP. Most of the investment, estimated at 100 million, was financed by the pan-European investment fund Marguerite II. The new cable will allow fast electronic communication between seven European countries connected to RedClara.
