Single Presentation - 25 min Navigating the Future of Intercontinental Connectivity Network Evolution


Paul Rouse (GÉANT) Tom Fryer (GÉANT)


To address GÉANT’s strategic goal of meeting user communities’ ever-growing international data transfer demands, GÉANT’s international connectivity will need to grow, adapt and remain highly resilient to disruptions. For this, GÉANT aims to harness new funding streams (e.g. GN5-IC1) and explore new infrastructure opportunities (e.g. European Digital Gateways). Planning will require close collaboration with the European and Global REN community to inform where GÉANT investment is most needed, and maximise opportunities for mutual back-up collaborations (e.g. ANA and AER). This presentation will describe GÉANT’s approach and how we intend to play our part in the future of global R&E connectivity.
