빈민가 지역의 무료 인터넷 액세스 확대를 지원

Cloudflare Pangea 프로젝트

인터넷은 생활의 중심이 되고, 지난 해에는 그 정도가 더 커졌습니다. 그렇지만 전체 인구의 반 정도는 인터넷에 액세스하지 못하고 있으며, 많은 인구는 열악하고, 비싸고, 안정적이지 못한 연결에 국한되고 있습니다. 공공 투자와 개인 투자가 크게 이뤄지고 있음에도 인터넷 액세스에 대한 이러한 불균등과 부당함은 지속되고 있습니다. 이에 대응하여 네트워크를 해당 지역 사회에서 소유하거나 지역 사회 내에서 운영하여 이러한 액세스 문제를 해결하려 하고 있으며, 상당한 성과가 있었습니다. 지역 사회는 최소의 교육과 지원 하에서 상품 하드웨어 및 비전문적 장비를 이용해 자체적인 근거리 통신망을 싸고 안정적으로 구축하고 있습니다.

Pangea 프로젝트는 Cloudflare가 Cloudflare의 상호 연결된 전역 네트워크를 이용해 빈민가 지역 사회에 안전한 인터넷 연결을 제공하려고 노력하는 것입니다. Cloudflare는 지역 사회와 협력하여 지역 내에 구축된 네트워크를 무료로 인터넷에 연결해 드리고 있습니다.

The Challenges

Communities around the world are increasingly investing in physical infrastructure to promote Internet connectivity, including WiFi antennas, fibre cables. However, even after communities establish local connections, the connection to the global Internet can be prohibitively expensive -- if it can be found at all.


Cloudflare's Approach

Cloudflare’s mission is to help build a better Internet, for everyone. Project Pangea extends the Internet we’re helping to build - a faster, more reliable, more secure Internet - to people who might not otherwise be able to access it. With Project Pangea, Cloudflare can help communities solve the network challenges of routing traffic to and from the Internet on behalf of the local or community network, while also providing state of the art security, privacy, and performance.

Cloudflare launched Cloudflare Network Interconnect in August 2020 to allow our customers to connect directly to our network for improved performance and reliability. Magic Transit and Magic Firewall provide those same customers with protection from malicious traffic like DDoS attacks. While we have used these services to help large enterprises improve the reliability and security of their networks, these same tools, with the same security and privacy protections built in, can be used by underserved populations who would not otherwise have reliable Internet access.

Project Pangea

Cloudflare is offering our suite of network services - Cloudflare Network Interconnect, Magic Transit, and Magic Firewall - for free to eligible non-profit. community networks, local networks, or other networks primarily focused on providing Internet access to local underserved or developing areas. This service dramatically reduces the cost for communities to connect to the Internet, with industry leading security and performance functions built-in:

Cloudflare Network Interconnect

Cloudflare Network Interconnect provides access to Cloudflare’s edge at 200+ cities across the globe through a flexible patchwork of physical and virtual connectivity options.

Eligibility requirements

Project Pangea is intended to help extend more secure and reliable Internet access to underserved communities. To be eligible, participants must be non-profit entities, cooperative community networks, or private or small commercial networks operating in the interest of the community, and must be primarily focused on providing Internet access to local, underserved communities.

Bandwidth cannot exceed 5Gbps at the 95th percentile (Cloudflare may update this figure upon 15 days notice).

Resale of Cloudflare's Internet provisions and security services provided under Project Pangea are for the benefit of the community network only and not available for resale to other networks, individuals, or entities.

Project Pangea may not be available in all jurisdictions.

Technical requirements

At this stage, the program includes two technical requirements.:

  • The network has its own IPv4 space (v6 support coming soon);

  • The network has or can establish ‘backhaul’ to an exchange point at eligible Cloudflare public or private peering locations found here.

As the project evolves, we may be able to modify these technical requirements.
