Colombia, with 49 proposals, and Ecuador, with 37, were the most participatory countries, followed by Mexico, Brazil, Chile and Argentina.

IPE miniThe capacity of the Brazilian academic network, the Ipê network, does not stop growing and the activation of new circuits in May brought more availability to the network in the North and Southeast regions of the country. The first was the link connecting Manaus (AM) to the Federal District, which received an upgrade from 1 Gb/s to 3 Gb/s. The other case was the activation of a new 10 Gb/s circuit between the Federal District and São Paulo.

AMLIGHT miniThe Amlight consortium, which manages international connections between the United States and Latin America for teaching and research purposes, has announced the activation of new 100 Gb/s international connections in Fortaleza, Brazil, and Santiago, Chile. With these new links, researchers and students in both countries will have access to a new network infrastructure with ten times the bandwidth, to the benefit of international academic collaboration.
