Airtel Connects Universities With Internet Infrastructure

(AllAfrica Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) In demonstration of its commitment to empower Nigerians with the latest mobile Internet and Enterprise Business solutions, leading telecommunications services provider, Airtel Nigeria, has entered into a strategic partnership with Computer Warehouse Group to deploy the country's first research and education network dubbed Nigerian Research and Education Network (NgREN).

The historic NgREN, an initiative of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, is the first Research and Education Network in the whole of West and Central Africa. It employs Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) to drive inter-institutional communication, collaboration, and shared access to knowledge across national and international boundaries.

The unique programme which enjoys World Bank support is an outcome of the National Universities Commission's partnership with the Committee of Vice Chancellors of Nigerian Universities to establish a foundation that will redefine research and learning in tertiary institutions across the country. The project also enjoys the support of the World Bank as it seeks to create an elaborate infrastructural backbone to interconnect all research and education institutions in the country and link them with other research and education networks worldwide.
