Regional networking organisations
The Ubuntunet Alliance, ASREN and WACREN are the three regional organisations that deliver AfricaConnect2 locally.
The UbuntuNet Alliance is the regional association of NRENs in
Eastern and Southern Africa. It was established in the latter half of 2005 and currently comprises participating NRENs in 15 countries. The UbuntuNet Alliance manages UbuntuNet, the regional network backbone that interconnects NRENs and connects them to other regional networks, such as its pan-European counterpart GÉANT.
ASREN and WACREN partner with GÉANT to deliver AfricaConnect2 (Cluster 2 & 3). The UbuntuNet Alliance is the implementing partner for Cluster 1, upgrading and expanding its network and building connections to other regions.
The involved partners will exploit synergies to ensure pan-African coverage of research and education international connectivity.
