幫助服務不足的社區免費擴充網際網路訪問

Cloudflare Pangea 专案

網際網路已經成為我們生活的中心——而且在過去的一年裡變得更加重要。然而,世界上有一半的人口無法訪問網際網路,更多的人僅能使用糟糕、昂貴且不可靠的連接。儘管公共和私有基礎結構方面進行了大量投資,網際網路接入不平衡和不公平的狀況依然存在。為解決這個問題,受影響社區擁有和運營的網路已經出現,並不斷取得成功。通過最低限度的培訓和支援,社區就可以使用商用硬體和非專業裝置,以低廉的價格可靠地建設自己的本地網路。

Pangea 专案是 Cloudflare 的一項努力,旨在通過 Cloudflare 的全球互連網路為欠缺服務的社區安全地連接到網際網路。我們正在與社區開展合作,免費幫助它們將本地建設的網路連接到網際網路。

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.

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.
