The presentation describes the background, status and plans of the EUMEDCONNECT project as it aims to pioneer Mediterranean research networking connectivity. Today many of the countries and their NRENs lack the levels of Internet access found in Western Europe, and many are not connected to GÉANT. The presentation will show how EUMEDCONNECT is helping address this digital divide, with funding support from the EC’s EUMEDIS programme. It will describe the practical (and still ongoing) challenges faced by EUMEDCONNECT as it has progressed from planning studies to procurement programmes to connecting NRENs. Plans for completing the project and making use of the network will be described, and the roles played by the many organisations that are helping turn the vision into reality.



This presentation is part of session "Rollout II" which starts at Tuesday, June 8 @ 14:00
