GARNET @ a Glance

The origins of the Ghanaian Academic and Research Network (GARNET) can be traced back to 1995, it only took a recognised significance in November 2006 at the end of a three-day workshop held by the Association of African Universities (AAU) in Accra as a National Research and Education Network (NREN) to facilitate more effective integration of ICT into higher education’s core mandate of teaching, learning, research, and information management.

2nd WACREN perfSONAR Training Workshop - Accra, Ghana - October 9-13 2017

WACREN organizes its 4th regional capacity building workshop in Accra, Ghana from the  9 - 13 October 2017

The workshop will be organized in collaboration with International Networks at the Indiana University, Ghanaian Academic and Research and Education Network (GARNET), the University of Ghana and AfricaConnect2.

 

Goal:    Focused on perfSONAR measurement meshes, participants will learn how to set up a new mesh and what it means to have a measuring point participate in a mesh.  These NREN and campus network administrators will also be connected to the WACREN regional perfSONAR deployment.  

Engineers from NRENs who have subscribed to the AfricaConnect2 project and will be connected to WACREN are the priority.   Others will include participants from the 1st WACREN perfSONAR workshop or experienced network engineers who have successfully deployed perfSONAR in their home organisations.  All participants will require exposure to network monitoring, network performance measurements and perfSONAR.  

Expected Outcomes:  Measurements will be taken by participants from NRENs connected to the WACREN network as well as those from countries connected via other international transit. These participants would then be able to quantify the network reliability and performance improvements with the WACREN network compared to commodity Internet services.  

Language:  Conducted in English with bilingual trainers

Logistics:

  • All participants will have to secure funds for their travel, including visa fees where applicable.
  • International participants will be provided with free accommodation (from 8th October to 14 October 2017)
  • Lunches and coffee breaks will be provided for all participants for the duration of the workshop.
