Lead Organisation Latin American and Caribbean Internet Addresses Registry (LACNIC
Type of Project Activity Project which enable ICT4D environment
Project URL http://lacnic.net/en/raices/
Brief Description This project will strengthen the global infrastructure of the Internet as well as its stability by providing the installation of up to seven anycast copies of the F root server operated by ISC in countries within LACNIC's region. With the installation of these servers in strategic sites such as IXPs (Internet Exchange Points)and NAPs (Network Access Points), it is expected that more direct access to the Internet will be provided for a greater number of users as well as local Internet Service Providers. This initiative is undertaken as part of the active role of LACNIC as promoter of Internet development within the region, and through the +Raices Project we seek to enhance the reach, strength and response times of the DNS system (a key building block of the Internet's infrastructure) regionally as well as globally.
