About

Network Atlas is a map of the globe that shows submarine and terrestrial networks, providing operational visibility to professionals who will be able to use Network Atlas to easily track and receive notifications on network outages, identify places where expansion is possible, and quickly procure additional capacity. Users who visit www.networkatlas.org are shown a map of the globe with green lines representing active networks and yellow and red lines representing networks with issues. A quick hover of a cursor over any single network reveals its name, total capacity, most recent status and other important details.

This is our financial planning sheet for next 3 years explaining how much we need and for what?

"Atlases have been valuable tools for explorers and business owners for hundreds of years," says Network Atlas Founder Mehmet Akcin. "Now, we're in the digital age, and our digital explorers need an atlas so they can navigate the world's fiber-optic Internet Infrastructure. We are adding networks to the atlas daily and look forward to the day where we can say we have a complete accounting of the world's submarine and terrestrial networks. These are networks for international and regional telecommunications networks for companies like AT&T , Zayo and Windstream and as well as for cloud providers. Being able to see the near real-time status of these networks all in one place will be an invaluable tool for the world's network professionals."

Network Atlas is currently in the development phase. Akcin expects the completed project to be online by early 2019. He says the project will be free for users who want to participate in the Network Atlas project, and believes crowd-sourcing network data from companies and professionals will help complete the Atlas faster. Akcin says the project will be a nonprofit and funded by sponsorships and other means of donations to make sure it stays free for users. For more information about Network Atlas, contact Mehmet Akcin at mehmet@networkatlas.org.

Risks and challenges

We may need more people than we anticipate and scaling is still an open ended question bu we won't worry about these until we get there.
