BdREN currently connects six universities and research institutions throughout Bangladesh, via a nationwide IP backbone at 45Mbps capacity. With more bandwidth intensive applications and greater user demand, it is envisaged that BdREN will evolve from the current 45Mbps backbone to a larger scale network in the following phase. BdREN backbone is versatile to support all types of traffic. Our researchers are running and operating various applications such as video conferencing, digital video transport system (DVTS), data computing, visualization/image modeling and e-learning. Therfore, it is important for BdREN to continue to deliver the quality performance required by the research communities.
Members are connected to BdREN via their respective access link, which can either be a fibre link or microwave link. The access connection varies according to the user’s requirements. BdREN connectivity is centralized at BdREN Network Operation Centre (NOC) located in Dhaka.
