Abstract

This work is the investigation's outcome of the current state of the Ecuadorian academy and research network, leading to propose a redundant public backbone to strengthen the network services allowing high availability, efficiency and security. As a result, the academic and research net would be a public good [1] for cooperation [2], rather than a private business only. Thus, this is a technical feasibility study proposing a coexistence of the current academic and research network provided by a private company, with a backup backbone provided by a public company of the Ecuadorian state. The investigation had the technical support of TransElectric and information supplied by CEDIA. The article has three sections: the analysis result of the current situation of the CEDIA network, TransElectric infrastructure, and the alternative backbone proposal.
