BELLA in a Nutshell

BELLA (Building the Europe Link with Latin America) provides for the long-term interconnectivity needs of European and Latin American research and education communities.

BELLA will achieve this through the procurement of a long-term Indefeasible Right of Use (IRU) for spectrum on a submarine cable between the two regions, minimising latency. BELLA is also developing and deploying a 100Gbps-capable research and education network across Latin America.

BELLA is being implemented by a Consortium of Regional Research and Education Networks GÉANT (Europe) and RedCLARA (Latin America) and the National Research and Education Networks (NREN) of Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, France, Germany, Italy, Portugal and Spain.

Funding for BELLA is provided by the European Union through three European Commission (EC) Directorates (DG-CONNECT, DG-DEVCO and DG-GROWTH) and by the Latin American NREN community.
