New High speed Research Network Launched in New Zealand
Posted on 31-Aug-2006 21:53. | Tags Filed under: News.



A new high speed network for New Zealand universities and research organisations, known as KAREN, was launched today.

Donald Clark, Chief Executive of REANNZ (Research and Education Advanced Network of New Zealand), the organisation established to operate KAREN (Kiwi Advanced Research and Education Network), said the network will allow incredibly high amounts of data to be exchanged quickly and easily.

The launch of KAREN is the culmination of extensive work and commitment by Ministry of Research Science and Technology (MORST), other government departments, Next Generation Internet NZ (NGI-NZ) and the 18 members comprised of Crown Research Institutes, Universities, and the National Library.

The KAREN network is a $43m government investment carrying data at speeds of 10Gbps (gigabits per second). This new network provides high speed networking to New Zealandís research, education and innovation sectors, delivering 100Mbps (megabits per second) or more to the desktop of an individual researcher, allowing much faster performance than achievable via the commercial Internet.

REANNZ has leased a wavelength of light from TelstraClear to carry data traffic between dedicated KAREN switches and routers in each region. Internationally, REANNZ uses capacity from Verizon Business.

The benefits include large increases in both the peak capacity and the total computing power delivered to research projects (in the sciences, arts and humanities), as well as new ways for research communities to share and analyse very large data sets.
