Data sharing between the U.S., Africa and Europe is now three times faster, furthering discovery around the globe

BLOOMINGTON, Ind.  January 17, 2017 — Research flowing between the United States, Europe and Africa got a significant boost early this year when Indiana University and its partners flipped the switch on a new 100 Gigabits per second (Gbps) transatlantic link. The new network runs over the America-Europe Connect (AEConnect) subsea cable system provided by vendor Aqua Comms DAC in support of the Networks for European, American and African Research, or NEAAR, grant.

Dr. Jennifer Schopf, director of International Networks at IU, is the principal investigator on the NEAAR award, which provides services and bandwidth connecting researchers in the U.S. with their counterparts in Europe and Africa. NEAAR is funded through the U.S. National Science Foundation’s (NSF) International Research Network Connections program. In fact, NEAAR supports the majority of the NSF-funded research sharing between Africa and the United States.

“Indiana University has a long history of supporting high performance networking as a tool to advance research and education collaborations around the world,” said Dr. Schopf. “This new circuit continues that mission, enabling important work in bioinformatics, geoscience and medical research,” said Dr. Schopf. “We’re excited to be able to offer this additional capacity to U.S., European and African researchers.”

The new link, which runs over the AEConnect cable between the U.S. and Ireland, marks IU’s latest foray into transatlantic networking. The university collaborated with the pan-European network for research and education and NEAAR co-lead, GÉANT, as well as Aqua Comms to bring the 3,431-mile undersea cable network to life this month. AEConnect replaces the previous connection between the researchers and provides three times faster connectivity than previously possible.

Cathrin Stöver, chief collaboration officer at GÉANT, celebrates the intercontinental partnership. “From food security to viral diseases and climate change, the challenges we face are very much global,” she said. “Our mission is to support researchers in solving these challenges, combining their knowledge wherever they are to allow faster discovery. Through increased transatlantic capacity and the European Union-funded AfricaConnect2 project, GÉANT is proud to enable faster data sharing between researchers on three continents.”

“We’re pleased to partner with IU and to support its NEAAR award over our AEConnect subsea cable system,” said Nigel Bayliff, chief executive officer, Aqua Comms. “Utilizing innovative optical technologies to provide flexible and scalable connectivity between continents, AEConnect provides IU and NEARR with a level of reliability, security and performance necessary to conduct their research with complete confidence.”

INOC to Discuss New NOC Services for Submarine Cable Networks That Leverage Company’s Expertise in Optical Transport Technologies at PTC’17 in Honolulu, Hawaii

NORTHBROOK, IL, January 16, 2017 – INOC, a 24×7 Network Operations Center (NOC) and global provider of technology infrastructure monitoring, reporting and support services, announces the launch of NOC services for subsea cable companies.  INOC will discuss its new NOC services offering for subsea networks at PTC’17: Changing Realities, the annual conference of Pacific Telecommunications Council (PTC), taking place January 15-18, 2017 at the Hilton Hawaiian Village® Waikiki Beach Resort in Honolulu, Hawaii.  INOC provides NOC services for subsea cable systems across a wide array of disciplines, including organizational procedure, documentation, customer on-boarding, event monitoring and quality control.

Delivering more than 95 percent of IP voice and data traffic, subsea cables have become a critical component to global commerce.  Leveraging its existing experience and expertise in optical transport, INOC’s operational foundation is an excellent segue into satisfying the varied and complex requirements of subsea cable network providers.  To support and enable these networks, INOC provides a full suite of NOC services to subsea cable companies including the monitoring and management of wet plant, Data Communications Networks (DCNs), and environmental elements including power, temperature and moisture, and facility access control, in addition to supporting the terrestrial network segments.  As an ISO 27001-certified company, INOC also ensures the security of customer information assets across all processes and technology.

“Many subsea cable owner-operators that do not want to incur the substantial expense of building and operating their own Network Operations Center often look to external NOC solutions,” says Prasad Ravi, CEO of INOC.  “Our engineers possess in-depth, practical knowledge of coherent optical systems and advanced modulation techniques, an acumen that translates easily from the terrestrial to subsea network domain.”

Whether an optical network resides beneath the ocean or on land connecting an enterprise or data center between remote locations, the imperatives of 24/7 network operations have similarities.  While the configurations and power requirements may differ on land and undersea, and the repair of cables requires different tactics depending on the location of the damage, issue detection, troubleshooting and follow-through processes remain the same and still enlists the optical expertise found in a seasoned NOC team.

INOC’s subsea cable customers are supported by INOC’s Optical NOC (ONOC), which is dedicated to optical network technologies with staff focused on monitoring and managing such networks.  The ONOC is sensitive to low latency network requirements and momentary outages, and works rapidly to reduce the Mean Time To Repair (MTTR) for incidents.

INOC combines state-of-the-art software technology, highly resilient and redundant NOC infrastructure, proven processes and expert technical staff to improve uptime, availability and performance of customer networks, applications and servers.  To learn more about INOC solutions, visit INOC.COM.  To discuss the company’s new NOC services for subsea cable companies among other offerings, schedule a meeting at PTC’17 with Hal Baylor, Director of Business Development at INOC by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.
