National Knowledge Network (NKN)

The NKN is a state-of-the-art multi-gigabit pan-India network for providing a unified high speed network backbone for all knowledge related institutions in the country. The purpose of such a knowledge network goes to the very core of the country's quest for building quality institutions with requisite research facilities and creating a pool of highly trained professionals. The NKN enables scientists, researchers and students from different backgrounds and diverse geographies to work closely for advancing human development in critical and emerging areas.

Apart from services like collaborative research, grid computing, virtual library etc., the NKN is providing high speed backbone connectivity for e-governance infrastructure such as data centres at the national and state levels, and networks (SWANs). The NKN will also provide massive data transfer capabilities required for e-governance applications.

In Arunachal Pradesh, following NKN nodes have been established in the educational institutes:

  • Rajiv Gandhi University (RGU), Doimukh
  • North Eastern Regional Institute of Scince & Technology (NERIST), Nirjuli
  • National Institute of Technology (NIT), Yupia
  • NIELIT, Naharlagun
  • Department of IT (SWAN)
