National Research and Education Network | Wikipedia audio article


A National Research and Education Network
(NREN) is a specialised internet service provider dedicated to supporting the needs of the research
and education communities within a country. It is usually distinguished by support for
a high-speed backbone network, often offering dedicated channels for individual research
projects. NRENs are usually the places where new Internet
protocols and architectures are introduced before deployment within the Public Internet. Two examples of these protocols are IPv6 and
IP multicast. Two examples of architecture are client/server
and Cloud computing. In recent years NRENs have also developed
many ‘above the net’ services. National Identity federations, many of which
are represented in REFEDs, are one example of such services.==List of NRENs by geographic area=====East and Southern Africa===
