Brochure explains how a new communications system brings ESO telescopes closer to Europe
22 October 2010
ESO and its partners in an international consortium are in the final stages of building EVALSO , a new data infrastructure in Chile. This brochure explains the why, the where and the how — why this fast data link is necessary, where it is located, and how the cutting-edge technology will make a big difference for operations at ESO and its partner institutions.
The brochure is available for download in PDF format.
 EVALSO is an international consortium of astronomical organisations and research network operators, part-funded under the European Commission FP7.
It is a partnership between Universita degli Studi di Trieste, Italy; ESO; Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Germany; Consortium GARR (Gestione Ampliamento Rete Ricerca), Italy; Universiteit Leiden, Netherlands; Istituto Nazionale di Astrofisica, Italy; Queen Mary, University of London, United Kingdom; Cooperación LatinoAmericana de Redes Avanzadas (CLARA), Uruguay; and Red Universitaria Nacional (REUNA), Chile.
