Abstract
This paper describes the technical choices and the solutions adopted to create high bandwidth (>1Gbps) communication links to both the ESO Paranal and the Cerro Armazones Observatories located in the Atacama Desert, in the Northern region of Chile. The complete system is planned to be in place by mid-2010. This infrastructure is part of the EVALSO[1] (Enabling Virtual Access to Latin-America Southern Observatories) project that is done by a consortium of 9 members and co-founded by the EC (European Commission) within the frame of the FP7-INFRASTRUCTURES-2007-1.2-02. More on the project is available at www.evalso.eu.
