The UNICC is a support project to the National Universities Commissions' Nigerian Research and Education Network (NgREN) project, the primary purpose of which is to deliver broadband infrastructure and access to facilitate research and learning using state of the art technology.

The UnICC Project is therefore, designed to seamlessly connect the networks of the main campuses of selected universities to the networks of their corresponding medical colleges and teaching hospitals through the deployment of fibre optic cable and its associated equipment.

There are two implementation phases of the project:

  • Fibre interconnectivity between Universities and their corresponding Colleges of Medicine/Teaching Hospitals
  • Electronic last mile user-devices: video conferencing system, CCTV system, smart classroom, data centres and IP telephone systems installed at the institutions.
Objectives

The following are the objectives of the project:

  1. Facilitate seamless connection between the Universities and their Medical Colleges to achieve bi-directional communication for the purpose of sharing and accessing information.
  2. Provide a platform for sharing bandwidth resources and creating a reverse path for backup in the event of downtime.
  3. Provide the requisite link for voice, data, video and other multimedia services (including conference facilities).
Service Model

This project is fully funded to support the National Universities Commission's NgREN project. The companies that implement the project are selected through open competitive bidding.

Benefits
  • Expanded communication link between the University campuses and their medical colleges/teaching hospitals
  • More efficient tertiary service delivery
  • Broader availability of scholarly resources
