Internet 2 Landspeed Record: Ooops, they did it again!
Aparently the folks from the Swedish University Network (SUNet) at
Lulea managed to break their previous Internet 2 Landspeed record
for both single and multiple streams, using NetBSD again.
The big difference in distance and thus the record itself is due
to suboptimal routing, crossing the ocean three times. Nonetheless,
thanks to a newer version of end machines' operating system
-- a prerelease of NetBSD 2.0 -- and some newer routers, this
record was achieved on a production network just in the previous
case. See the project pages for
single stream and
for more information!
