Support to Emerging NRENs
MetadataShow full item record
The UbuntuNet Alliance and the AfricaConnect project have led to the creation of various NRENs in Southern and Eastern Africa. Success stories of newly created NRENs can be found, for example, in Zambia or Uganda. But there are still various countries in the region that have not yet created an NREN or an NREN-like organisation and many more where the NREN continues in an embryonic state without the necessary national or international data communications capacity to allow it to operate a production network and offer services to its member institutions. South and Eastern African NRENs are not alone in this situation. Across the world, NRENs struggle to “take the next step” and to keep developing.
