Feasibility study on the interconnection of south and eastern African research networks to GÉANT, 2008/S 48-065628, Contract notice, Services

Funded under: FP7-INFRASTRUCTURES

Abstract

The feasibility study should examine the viability of establishing a regional research network infrastructure among southern and eastern African National Research and Education Networks (NRENs) and provide recommendations to the European Commission on the deployment of such regional network and its interconnection to GÉANT. In order to reach this goal, the study will investigate key elements for its feasibility like the associated costs, the time frame required for establishing a regional network, and will identify the best scenarios for the deployment. An important aspect of the study will be to deliver a roadmap for deployment and to increase awareness and capability for wider African participation.
