National Broadband Network
The National Broadband Network (NBN) was established in the light of His Majesty’s initiative “Connecting Jordanians”. The NBN is a comprehensive Learning and Public Access Network that will connect public Universities, Public Schools, Community Colleges and Public Access Sites. The Ministry of information and Communication Technology took the responsibility in establishing the network.
The Jordanian Universities Research and Learning Network
The Jordanian Universities Research and Learning Network was implemented as the initial stage of the NBN to provide an advanced TCP/IP network for Jordan’s Research institutions and Public Universities. The specific objectives of the Jordanian University Research and Learning Network are:
- To provide the Jordanian Research and Learning (R&L) institutions with a first-class TCP/IP network which will facilitate communications, collaboration, experimentation, and learning.
- To encourage students, faculty members, and researchers to use high speed networks to increase productivity and foster a culture of innovation.
- To develop a Jordanian Research and learning community.
