BELLA T-003 Routing Equipment

The BELLA-T Project

BELLA-T is a project funded by the European Commission under Contract LA/2016/376-534 aiming at achieving a long-term and significant improvement of the academic South American network, enabling the Latin American Research and Education Regional Network, RedCLARA to guarantee full and equal access by LA NRENs to the capacity of the direct Europe-Latin America submarine cable which is being procured through the BELLA-S Project, both part of the BELLA Programme. 

This will be realised by upgrading RedCLARA's optical infrastructure in South America, which will allow the deployment of an optical network, generating synergies with the NRENs of the region, through increased capillarity and effectiveness.

The result will be a secure resilient optical backbone ready to support 100 Gbps wavelengths in South America which will become RedCLARA’s main regional infrastructure for research, education, innovation and public service in Latin America.
