The UbuntuNet Alliance is seeking offers for capacity services under the forthcoming AfricaConnect 2 project. The project, funded by the Pan African Programme will build upon the high-capacity network for research and education that has been partially established in the Southern and Eastern Africa (ESA) region under the AfricaConnect 1 funding programme (which finished successfully on 5th May 2015).The programme, supported by a combined EC and African NREN budget of €10m, will increase the resilience of extant links and reach out to newly joining NRENs to the UA from within ESA. It will support the new and improved network between the region and the world wide community of Research and Education Networks by continuing to connect with GÉANT, the pan-European Research and Education Network operated by GÉANT Ltd.
