AURA Internet Link

On February 22nd we officially turned on a 622Mbit circuit connecting La Serena to the U.S Research networks.  The providers of this service are REUNA in Chile and AMPATH of Florida International University in Miami. This is the first of many steps in an increasing trend towards the large bandwidth that will be needed to support LSST. The link will be utilised by all the AURA Tenants in Chile in additon to Las Campanas, NRAO for the ALMA project and data transfer testing for LSST.
