Objective

Asi@Connect is continuing ASEM's success story addressing the themes of the ASEM initiative and its overall and specific objectives are as follows:

  • increase internet connectivity for research and education between Asia and Europe via high-speed direct links to GÉANT.
  • improve intra-regional connectivity across Asia-Pacific with upgraded link capacities
  • support UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through improved access to education and research resources
  • promote international R&E collaboration between Asian and European partners
  • expand geographical coverage of the network to include other Asian countries
  • promote the broadening of SDGs relevant user applications supported by the TEIN network, and increase the use of the TEIN network.
  • enhance human capacity of the Asi@Connect partners

By providing the Asia-Pacific countries with a gateway for global research and education collaborations, Asi@Connect empowers developing Asian countries to participate in collaborative programmes and bridges the Digital Divide that exists within the global communities of research, education and health.

Strategy

Facilitate utilization of TEIN network : Global ICT test bed for new techn-ologies/services - Reinforce foundation of TEIN network : Increasing network capacity and reinforcing internet service quality - Global cooperation : Increasing cooperation between Asia – Europe through expanding participating states- Resolve digital divide :Balanced development in Asia region with trainings and assistance for education

Facilitate utilization of the TEIN network

Based on the existing TEIN network, support global interconnections, reinforce mutual assistance with ASEM, ASEAN, and APAN to facilitate R&E development across Asia. At the same time, collaborate with Europe, North America, Japan etc. to pursue the development of Future Internet technologies including SDN (Software Defined Networking) and M2M(Machine to Machine) and a global testbed to support application services such as E-learning, E-Governance, etc.

Reinforce foundation of the TEIN network

Process high speed and large capacity for the network backbone, and implement feasibility survey to expand participating states in Asia. Moreover, guarantee service quality of TEIN line, reinforce security function, and strengthen traffic monitoring and engineering functions of Network Operating Center (NOC) for stable and effective network operation.Secure high speed and large capacities for the network backbone, and conduct feasibility studies to expand to currently unconnected Asian countries. Moreover, guarantee service quality, reinforce security function, and strengthen traffic monitoring and engineering functions of Network Operating Center (NOC) for stable and effective network operations.

Global cooperation

Pursue expansion as international research & education network by expanding its geographical footprint and increasing utilization of the TEIN network.

Bridge the digital divide

Identify suitable trainings for Asi@Connect members in the Asia region and facilitate information sharing and exchange through organizing and/or supporting IT related workshops and conferences. Moreover, reinforce the collaboration with partners from the developing countries through co-hosting training programmes and providing funding support, in order to promote a balanced development of ICT (Information & Communication Technology), nurture talents in IT and solve gaps in information, etc.
