CEDIA GROWS

CEDIA reinforces its message and mission by transforming its graphic image into RED CEDIA, the National Research and Education Network of Ecuador, generating not only new services for its more than 35 members, but also internationally highlighting the recognition of its innovation and inclusive processes, upon its incorporation into the public and private network of institutions, such as: universities, polytechnic schools, research institutes, technological institutes, and schools.

IMPLEMENTING OUR NETWORK

CEDIA implements its own IP / MPLS network that is connected to the United States and through which it interfaces with Advanced Network and Commercial Internet.

The migration to this new network constitutes a challenge and at the same time a milestone to be met by each of our members. This project marks the beginning of new capabilities to improve our connectivity services. Through this implementation we are part of Bella-T, which complements RedCLARA's terrestrial infrastructure with multi-channel capacity that guarantees comprehensive capillarity for the use of Latin American research and education communities.
