帮助服务不足的社区免费扩充互联网访问

Cloudflare Pangea 项目

互联网已经成为我们生活的中心——而且在过去的一年里变得更加重要。然而,世界上有一半的人口无法访问互联网,更多的人仅能使用糟糕、昂贵且不可靠的连接。尽管公共和私有基础设施方面进行了大量投资,互联网接入不平衡和不公平的状况依然存在。为解决这个问题,受影响社区拥有和运营的网络已经出现,并不断取得成功。通过最低限度的培训和支持,社区就可以使用商用硬件和非专业设备,以低廉的价格可靠地建设自己的本地网络。

Pangea 项目是 Cloudflare 的一项努力,旨在通过 Cloudflare 的全球互连网络为欠缺服务的社区安全地连接到互联网。我们正在与社区开展合作,免费帮助它们将本地建设的网络连接到互联网。

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:

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.
