Network management and design
National Research and Education Networks (NRENs) play an essential role in supporting member institutions to optimise network connectivity to support research information services, access and use. We work to strengthen such networks at institutional, national, regional levels.
We work with existing NRENs and associated regional bodies to strengthen the physical networks and services provided over those networks. This includes providing training, peer support and learning opportunities in areas like:
- NREN central services delivery
- Shared information services, in particular systems librarian network optimisation and services development
- Campus network review, configuration and development
- Bandwidth management at policy and technical level (e.g. network traffic monitoring and analysis, and software tools)
Activities in these areas are targeted at network technicians, managers and associated institutional level policy makers.
