Since the first TEIN initiative launched in 2000, TEIN projects have been evolved from the first phase with a 2 Mbps link connection between France and Korea, now to the fourth phase – TEIN4 that provides the network with up to 10 gigabits per second.
The early phases of the TEIN projects were managed by DANTE (now GÉANT, www.geant.org), a pan-European data and communication network for Europe’s education and research community based in Cambridge, the United Kingdom. At the ASEM-8 Summit held in Brussels, Belgium in October 2010, Korea was granted the operation right to manage the 4th phase of the TEIN project.
Hence, the Trans-Eurasia Information Network*Cooperation Center (TEIN*CC) was officially established and legally registered as a non-profit foundation corporation in Seoul, Korea in August 2011. Since April 2012 when the TEIN-4 contract was signed and the project was formally initiated, TEIN*CC has managed the TEIN-4 project.TEIN*CC website
