Projects in which rednesp is involved
The AmLight project is an academic consortium co-financed by NSF, rednesp and RNP, aimed at operating multiple broadband channels between academic networks in Latin America, with the main points of interconnection being the cities of Miami (USA), São Paulo, Fortaleza, Panama City and Santiago, Chile.
The Global Network Avancement Group (GNA-G), successor to the former Global Lambda Integrated Facility (GLIF), is a virtual organization of academic networks with the objective of providing international connectivity (dedicated, temporary or permanent) to research projects that demand it.
The São Paulo Research and Analysis Center (SPRACE), located at the Theoretical Physics Institute of the Universidade Estadual Paulista (Unesp), is the main user of the network provided by rednesp, being responsible for part of the worldwide data processing of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) of CERN, Switzerland. In addition, the rednesp team is directly involved in the development of the SDN Kytos platform, also carried out at SPRACE.
The Center for Internet Augmented Research & Assessment (CIARA), located at Florida International University (FIU), functions as an operating partner of rednesp in the US, bringing together technicians and researchers who help to maintain our network through AmLight.
