©Ubuntunet Alliance Agenda 1.Rationale for Education and Research Network 2.The UbuntuNet Alliance
©Ubuntunet Alliance Its about sharing (1) have their own PCs / workstations Ethernet connections to first hub or switch Printers (some times) Storage space on file servers Email accounts and mail folders but share Campus backbone capacity Access to licensed software E-content Network printers Internet access Mail domain e.g. mail.uem.mz Within each institution, END-USERS…
©Ubuntunet Alliance Its about sharing (2) have their own IP address blocks Connection circuits to the NREN but share NRENs backbone capacity NRENs network identity NRENs peering agreements with other RENs NRENs general Internet access Other NREN services Within each NREN, institutions…
©Ubuntunet Alliance Its about sharing (3) have their own Network identities Connections to the RREN but share RRENs network identity RRENs cross-border backbone capacity RRENs peering with other RENs RRENs general Internet access Other RREN services Within each Regional REN, NRENs…
©Ubuntunet Alliance Do we need an RREN? Angola Botswana DRC Kenya (KENET) Lesotho Malawi Mozambique (MoRENet) Namibia Rwanda S Africa (TENET) Swaziland Tanzania Uganda (RENU) Zambia Zimbabwe …others… General Internet access Connections to each other; and to Géant Abilene (Internet2) EUMEDCONNECT CANet (Canadian REN) TEIN2 (China, Japan, Malaysia) AARNET (Australian REN) …others… These countries..and they want it all very CHEAP !! ……..all want
©Ubuntunet Alliance Resources theyd all have to use Cross-border links operated by telcos, mobile operators, power companies,… Sub-marine cable connectivity SAT-3 West Africa cable (WASC) SAT-3 Far East cable (SAFE) East Africa Submarine System (EASSy) (proposed) In some cases satellite capacity as an interim solution!
©Ubuntunet Alliance So, should each do it on its own? No way! Lets create a Regional REN! Lets share a regional backbone! Lets share peering links! Lets share general Internet connectivity Lets share knowledge and other resources
©Ubuntunet Alliance … and so... The UbuntuNet Alliance
©Ubuntunet Alliance The UbuntuNet Alliance (1) To be incorporated as a nonprofit company limited by guarantee Wants to serve all bona-fide NRENs in Sub-Saharan Africa Focused on optical fibre – not VSAT Members: VCs/D-VCs nominated by NRENs Council of Members will: meet annually (normally) Appoint Chair, Deputy-Chair, Board of Directors Initiators acting as Interim Board One person from each of Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Rwanda, South Africa
©Ubuntunet Alliance The UbuntuNet Alliance (2) Announced at WSIS, Nov 2005, Tunis Strong support from SARUA Vice-Chancellors AAU (Dr Sawyerr) NEPAD (Dr Henry Chasia, e-Africa Commission) IDRC (Canada), SIDA (Sweden), BMZ (Germany) UA hopes to apply for assistance from EC Possible feasibility study later this year UA enjoys support from national government OSI and IDRC have approved seeding grants
©Ubuntunet Alliance UbuntuNet Projects SARUA Fiber Study of available fibre infrastructure Get the Alliance incorporated April 2006 Try to secure wholesale bandwidth on: EASSy Cross-border fibre backbones in the region Establish web site, discussion lists,… Farside mail scrubbing
©Ubuntunet Alliance In Summary … UbuntuNet Alliance will be the Regional REN for Eastern and Southern Africa Access to Cross-border gigabit fibre capacity Long haul gigabit continental REN connections Support Services to RENs Gaining access to EASSy capacity is a mean to realize this vision but not the end.
