ARENA-PAC Indonesia Segment starts to be operated as a new high-speed path to institutions connected via IDREN

New 100-gigabits path from Guam to Malang stimulates the development of use cases and applications for research and education institutions in Indonesia

February 1, 2023 – The recently activated Guam–Malang link announced today marks the operation of new high-speed connectivity to support elevating services and collaboration available to research and education (R&E) parties in Indonesia. The operation of this connectivity was achieved as per the MoU signed among Arterial Research and Educational Network in the Asia Pacific (ARENA-PAC), Universitas Brawijaya (UB), and Indonesia Research and Education Network (IDREN) on August 31, 2022.

The 100 Gbps ARENA-PAC network connects to IDREN, with UB as its gateway, to Tokyo and other locations through Guam. The connection marks a giant leap for the R&E community in Indonesia to be able to exchange data more quickly and boost possible wider collaboration with the global R&E community.
