CANARIE

Established in 1993 CANARIE is Canada's Advanced Research and Innovation Network. CANARIE connects over 40,000 researchers at 125 Canadian universities, 132 colleges and 49 general and vocational colleges, as well as scientists at many research institutes, hospitals, and government laboratories throughout Canada. Schools and cultural institutions also benefit from the connectivity provided by CANARIE.
CANARIE is a member of the DICE Collaboration.

IP connectivity to CANARIE is provided by the 10-Gbps link between Amsterdam and New York link. Dedicated circuits to Canada can be carried on the two 10-Gbps links between Paris and New York and London and New York respectively.

USLHCNet

USLHCNet is a wide-area network which supports the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, and the High Energy Physics (HEP) community in the United States. Funded by the US Department of Energy and CERN, USLHCNet is managed by the California Institute of Technology (CALTECH) in collaboration with CERN.

USLHCNet operates a series of 10-Gbps links interconnecting CERN, MANLAN in New York and Starlight in Chicago and provides reliable, high-bandwidth connectivity between CERN and Tier1 sites. Together with GÉANT, ESnet, Internet2 and the US National Science Foundation’s UltraLight project, USLHCNet also supports connectivity between US Tier1 and European Tier2 centres as well as between European Tier1 and US Tier2 centres.

Among USLHCNet’s transatlantic links is one which lands at SARA. Onward connectivity to CERN is provided by a 10-Gbps GÉANT Lambda circuit. USLHCNet also funds the 5-Gbps link from Vienna to

New York which provides connectivity between GÉANT and ESnet.
USLHCNet is a member of the DICE Collaboration.
