AARCLight study - year 1 findings

Americas Africa Research and eduCation Lightpaths (AARCLight) is a project, funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), to conduct a feasibility study for the planning, designing, and defining a strategy for high capacity research and education network connectivity between the U.S. and West Africa. We propose to report on the findings from year 1 of the study. The study focuses on the following four areas of inquiry: The planned availability of submarine cable capacity in the South Atlantic for use by R&E communities; the demand for network services between the U.S. and West Africa by the R&E communities; the coordination of efforts by the U.S., nations of Africa, and Brazil to coordinate planning efforts to strategically make use of the offered network capacity towards serving the broadest communities of interest in research and education; and the planned activities for human capacity development in Angola and nations of west Africa for the effective use of the inter-regional network capacity to support the inter-regional R&E communities.
