monopoly Africa has some of the highest costing international bandwidth on the planet. Building fibre connections should lower bandwidth costs. But despite the building of the SAT3/WASCSAFE fibre, the price of E1s on this route to the rest of the world remain at levels that are often above their satellite equivalents. As Africa’s national monopolies slowly begin to disappear, attention will now begin to focus on the new strategic heights of international competition. For there will be little point in achieving competition at a national level if there remains a large obstacle between Africa’s competitive markets and the rest of the world. The building of SAT3/WASC was a considerable achievement. It is in effect two cables: SAT/WASC which travels down the west coast of Africa to Cape Town and SAFE which goes from Cape Town to Asia. The consortium that built these two connected stretches of cable has 36 shareholders. What does the "club consortium" mean in practice? Sat3 started in April 2001.

Global Research NOC - GENI: GMOC The GENI Meta-Operations Center, located at Indiana University, provides GENI researchers with a 24x7x365 Service Desk to serve as a single point of contact for reporting problems and providing project coordination and communications. GMOC currently provides notifications, reporting and escalation for the Integrated GENI OpenFlow Backbone Network as well as providing GENI experimenters with the overall health of the GENI infrastructure and a single point of contact for reporting trouble and connecting the GENI experimenters with the proper GENI operators. Learn more about the Global Environment for Network Innovations (GENI) Visit the GMOC Project Page on GENI Wiki Contact the GMOC Subscribe to the "GENI Ops" list to receive notifications about events affecting the GENI Core Network and other GENI infrastructure that may impact GENI experiments. GMOC will also design and craft the protocols and processes needed to bring consistency and repeatability to GENI’s federated infrastructure.
