To the European IP community,

This is to inform you that today, Sunday 26 September 1992, the final
link of the initially defined EBONE, the London-Montpellier link, was
put in place. The EBONE is now complete as a resilient pan-European IP
backbone.

September 1, 1991, after an initiative by Kees Neggers, a small group
of people gathered for the first time, in an office building outside
Amsterdam, to see if it could be possible to build a pan-European IP
backbone. Today, 390 days later, the full backbone is up and running.
Without all the voluntary efforts put in this would never have been
possible.  As a result we today see one of the worlds technically most
advanced backbones in Europe.

I must admit I have never seen a group with so much expertise gathered
around the table and with so much enthusiasm in making this knowledge
serve the European networking user community.  I will by this give my
deep gratitude to all those people involved in the fulfillment of the
first pan-European IP backbone.

To make it short:


                       WE MADE IT!!!
                  ========================

There is some bottles of champaign waiting in Paris :-)

See you there all of you,

  Bernhard Stockman.
  Chair of the EBONE Action Team.
