Linking Scientists in US, Russia, China, Korea, Canada, The Netherlands, India, Egypt, Singapore and Nordic Countries with Advanced Cyberinfrastructure
After several long delays due to the events following the uprising in Egypt that toppled the previous ruling regime, a high-speed fibre-optic network linking scientists and educators from around the world has finally linked Egypt into it’s network.
Researchers in Egypt will be able to use the high bandwidth connection, with speeds at more than a billion bits per second, to collaborate with their counterparts around the world in research such as high-energy physics, astronomy and climate.
Through the new link, GLORIAD hosted the first ever school-to-school exchange over the new network, involving the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Academy High School and a technology magnet elementary school in Knoxville and GLORIAD’s partners in Cairo.
GLORIAD is set to continue expanding, with a new connection reaching the Gulf States in the Middle East and linking into a science infrastructure in Africa.

GLORIAD's measurement, monitoring and cybersecurity systems are driven by Carter Bullard's excellent (and open-source) Argus system.
GLORIAD's US home is at the Institute for a Secure and Sustainable Environment of the University of Tennessee.
