Hi guys

Is there anyone who can access Karen?

If so, could you please let me know your experience of Karen?

How (actually) fast between oversea links, is it (practically) closed or got a some open gateway to internet?

BTW KAREN is for KIWI ADVANCED RESEARCH AND EDUCATION NETWORK, http://www.karen.net.nz

It is a closed network with no internet access on it.

It has a 10G ring around NZ and has STM4 to USA and STM1 to AU research networks.

Thanks
Craig

Hi LennonNZ,

Thanks for your input first of all.

Beside of facts of the network, could you tell me how it (really) feel like?

I have auctually wondered how much of this network's capacity is auctually used. I would think that for an educational / research network there would really be only burst rates of traffic going through it. If you want to, you can talk to the companies on this page to find out about connecting you to it.
