The ANSP project (an Academic Network at São Paulo), as determined by a decision of FAPESP's Board of Trustees, “provides the State of São Paulo research community with state of the art computer networking connectivity.”


ANSP develops and maintains the infrastructure, Internet services and data communication in general which, in conjunction with ANSP’s Technical Reserve Program, offers the education and research community in the State of São Paulo the technological means needed to access information throughout the world, to share knowledge, to develop collaborative projects and for innovation on a large scale.


The ANSP Project is run by NARA from The Medical School of the University of São Paulo and is funded by FAPESP through process 2013/11711-5



Within the program of its fourth Biannual Meeting (BMA4), ANSP (an Academic Network at São Paulo) lays on a demonstration of the 100 Gbps DWDM network, presented by Padtec in USP's CCE.


This Tuesday, 29 October, in the course of BMA4 (ANSP’s 4th Biannual Meeting), with its guiding theme “Cloud-Network Convergence”, in addition to the lectures, courses and workshops offered in its meetings, ANSP presented the members of its ecosystem with an opportunity to attend a demonstration, arranged by the Padtec company, of a 100 Gbps DWDM optical channel system, a first for teaching and research networks in Brazil.

This demonstration of a 100 Gbps network introduces the connection, via the Kyatera network, between Unicamp (University of Campinas) and CCE-USP (the University of São Paulo’s Electronic Computing Center), totaling approximately 130 km of network.

According to Prof. Luis Fernandez Lopez, ANSP’s Project Coordinator, this first 100 Gbps DWDM on the Kyatera network, in addition to demonstrating Padtec’s capacity for innovation, encourages and facilitates the activities of Brazilian teaching and research networks and further consolidates the ANSP-Padtec academic-business partnership

“An important achievement of Brazilian engineering that ranks alongside the most sophisticated in the world. The cooperative work between University, Research Center (CPqD) and industry represents a result of extreme technological and market relevance,” the President of Padtec, Solomon Jorge Pereira, underlined.

The ANSP Biannual Meetings (BMAs) are now recognized by the research and innovation communities as receptive spaces to communications researchers and professionals for the presentation of concepts, equipment, reports of projects and development proposals in the area of ​​networks, and today’s demonstration strengthens this spirit of stimulating and disseminating new ideas, experiences and advances in science and technology.
