The project aims to develop and experiment a VPN network for teaching and research units, to make possible various activities such as training courses and e-learning, communication, creation of common libraries, experimental tests, the development of specific software packages, etc.., integrating IT resources and modern techniques of communication available to partners.
network technology, an educational and research integrated network, to
provide broadband communications and to create the possibility of extending the
coverage of various services, in locations with communication and education
unfavoured infrastructure can be realized. To achieve the network it will be
used modern wireless and cabled communication techniques. The main scope of the
project is to ensure broadband access,
multimedia communications and to allow software experimentations between
For this purpose it will be realized an experimental multimedia platform in each unit of the consortium of three universities and two institutes of research, platforms that will integrate networks using VPN. The platform can be in the future developed by integrating other education and research units.
Multimedia platforms designed and tested in this
VPN system will be built up
using modern information technologies for modelling user and his experience,
user interface modelling, design of human-computer interaction providing a rapid
and permanent exchange of information between network users. Topics addressed
for training and exchange of information will cover most aspects of modern
communication networks. In particular will be created and developed specific
software training services.
The final aim of the project consists in building a complex infrastructure of the virtual network for remote units, spread over a large geographical area and an integrated set of methodologies, software tools and associated services, tested and validated in collaborative activities (training, complex projects research, sharing of resources). Results can be adapted and expanded into other areas of education and research.
By promoting the integrated network of educational-research is taken into consideration to increase the quality of education researchers, teachers, students and specialists in the IT & C, training young researchers from the ranks of students, expanding the network of education and research, ensuring the conditions for continuous education training and retraining etc..
