National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NME-ICT): Under this project all the colleges, institutes and universities are being provided with high speed data connectivity so that high quality e-content could be reached to the teachers and students of educational organizations.
According to the project, all UGC-approved colleges (degree level and above) would be provided VPN over Broadband (VPNoBB) @512 kbps each-10 connections in the first year, 15 connections in the second year and 20 connections in the third year. Internet bandwidth will be fed centrally to this VPN network @ 5 Gbps in first year, 10 Gbps in second year and 30 Gbps in third year. All the 419 universities will be given 1 Gbps link to nearest National Knowledge Network (NKN) node on OFC. All the universities will be provided a LAN network of 400 nodes each and BSNL will be responsible for its maintenance for next 5 years.
The connectivity under NMEICT would seamlessly integrate with the National Knowledge Network (NKN).
