Tunisia re-joins international R&E community through AfricaConnect2
Cambridge, 26 November 2018
Earlier this month, the Arab States Research and Education Network (ASREN) and Centre de Calcul El Khawarizmi (CCK) have signed an agreement under which ASREN will provide a 1 Gbps connection between the Tunisian national R&E network Réseau National Universitaire (RNU) and the pan-European GÉANT network through ASREN’s Point of Presence (PoP) in London.
The agreement marks Tunisia’s re-joining the international R&E community with the support of the EU-funded AfricaConnect2 project. The link provides researchers, academics and students access to the global R&E networking infrastructure, enabling them to collaborate with peers in other Arab countries and world regions.
