HEC launches advanced research network
Islamabad: The Higher Education Commission (HEC) has now launched the
advanced Pakistan Education and Research Network (PERN) which has been connected
to other global Research & Education Networks (RENs), viz the Internet2 of
USA, Asia-Pacific Advanced Network of continents of Asia and Australia, and
GEANT2 network of National RENs of European countries.
This link is a result
of joint efforts of the HEC and the National Science Foundation of USA who
equally co-funded a dedicated link from PERN to Internet2.
The PERN now has a
total R&E link capacity of 155 Mbps and it is now leading in South Asia
being three times bigger than the linking capacity of India's Education &
Research Network (ERNet) which is connected to global R&E network over a 45
Through this connectivity, academicians and researchers would be
directly connected to other peer RENs, resulting in lesser delays and low
latency with add on features of security and high performance for the
specialized and time sensitive activities, like simulations on distributed
resources, telemedicine and video conferencing, remote instrumentation, etc.
Moreover, universities/ institutes now have access to the large contents and
research resources available with the constituent academic and research
institutions in RENs in advanced countries.
These include free online
educational multimedia-on-demand, online library resources, access to
supercomputing and grid nodes, collaborative tools, digital heritage, test bed
for the future internet design, advanced network services' test bed for IPv6,
multicast implementation, layer 2 virtual private networks (VPNs) etc.
purpose of this network connection is to support Pakistan's science and
technology collaborations with technologically advanced countries.
network connections will greatly assist the scientific collaborations being
defined between the developed countries and Pakistan by allowing more direct,
high-speed access and communication among S&T investigators and worldwide
Two of the many examples are the High-speed access to
the Bio-Mirror and other genomics based archive data hosted by Indiana
University which is critical for genome research will be facilitated by this
Similarly, this connection will allow more
rapid access to data originating from the NSF funded Network for Earthquake
Engineering Simulation (NEES) project to assist the efforts of the Earth
Sciences and Seismology WG.
The project of PERN was initiated in 2002 as an
Educational Intranet by Prof. Dr. Atta-ur-Rahman. Since then the Network has
evolved significantly and provides valuable services, like high speed internet,
audio/video conferencing, access to digital library resources like journals,
books and research thesis in digitalised format. The Nation
