Expanding the footprint

One of the key deliverables of the Janet Access Programme is to expand the geographical footprint of Janet so that existing ‘last mile’ connectivity can be provided more cost effectively, and reaching new customers and new markets can become more affordable.

With the design and delivery work carried out to date that has largely been achieved, and it will be a key factor in the design of future access infrastructures. The next 12 months of work involves completing the first phase of networks, designing the remaining access networks, and supporting institutions in exploiting those networks to best serve their requirements.

This means working with members and customers in regions we’ve already built to make sure we’re serving all of their connectivity needs, and working with members and customers in regions we’re designing to do the same, and build those requirements into access network designs where possible.

So, if you have connectivity requirements that aren’t currently being met via Janet connectivity services, please speak to us about what we can do for you in this area. From hundreds of Gbit/s between data centres, to connecting low bandwidth satellite campuses, and everything in between, there’s a Jisc product to meet the need.

If you want to know more, and discuss costs of any additional connectivity requirements you may have, speak to your Jisc account manager.
