©Centro de Informática da Universidade Eduardo Mondlane Capacity as a driver for Education and Research Interaction - Motivations African universities need the same connectvity as their peers in other parts of the world, otherwise they cannot keep up and Africa will loose – This means Gigabit/s rather than Kilobit/s networks Academic networking is delimited and strictly non-commercial and will not reduce the demand on the commercial market Society as a whole will gain a lot by the dynamic/external effects triggered by the transformation Operators will also benefit from a controlled fast transformation - more revenues over a medium term due to injection of donor funds - increasing demand for secondary capacity in the medium to long term - an increasing public sector activity will decrease the required private sector capex and consequently the business risk, which will stimulate action

©Centro de Informática da Universidade Eduardo Mondlane SARUA fiber study So we have decided to carry out a study to find out what fiber exists in the countries and between countries.
©Centro de Informática da Universidade Eduardo Mondlane Objectives of the Study Survey of fiber inside and between countries Assess the regulatory environments and their impact on the usage of existing fiber and propose improvements supporting growth Strengthen the user position by resource sharing and academic procurement consortium Propose cooperation with fiber owners to develop the market for fiber with added value to all stakeholders
©Centro de Informática da Universidade Eduardo Mondlane Objectives Draft an action plan towards a SSA regional academic backbone connecting NREN Using the needs and requirement specs produced by ATICS and PAREN Adding value both to academia and to NEPAD’s efforts for a general infrastructure Propose a joint AAU-SARUA-IUCEA and NREN task force to refine and implement the action plan Draft guidelines for procurement of such a backbone
©Centro de Informática da Universidade Eduardo Mondlane Target groups and messages to be delivered Policy Makers and regulators (National Governments Africa needs a fibre infrastructure supporting broadband for all, just as any other continent, to keep up with the global development! Delay in the enforcement of open policies is the main cause for the increasing digital divide Require and support industry transform from low- volume/high-cost to high-volume/low-cost business models
©Centro de Informática da Universidade Eduardo Mondlane Target groups and messages to be delivered Academia (universities and research institutes) Review your ICT policy vision, objectives, goals and action plans to take advantage of emerging fibre based NRENs and a regional fibre backbone Contribute to the development of guidelines for joint procurements taking advantage of earlier experiences and large scale integration Telecom industry Recognise academia as a neutral non-commercial partner serving all sectors of society that can help spearhead in development phases and provide pilot customers
©Centro de Informática da Universidade Eduardo Mondlane Target groups and messages to be delivered AAU/SARUA/NEPAD and Donors Recognize, support and use African academia as an advanced, strong and organized ICT user community that can Serve society as a user agent articulating user needs and requirements Develop and provide human resources Develop new applications and services
