SILK-Afghanistan Project Connects to GEANT

The SILK-Afghanistan project, an academic network linking universities in Afghanistan, has recently doubled its longhaul capacity to the pan-European G√ČANT network from 75 Mbps to 155 Mbps.  The project is jointly funded by NATO’s Science for Peace and Security Programme and the U.S. Department of State.

The Afghan academic research network has also joined the pan-Asian TEIN research and education networking project and hopes to establish a high-speed network connection to the TEIN network backbone by 2015.
