Connectivity Programme Connectivity Programme
Connectivity programme comprises telecommunication infrastructure projects that are implemented through Public Private Partnership model. They are subsidized by the USPF but implemented, owned and operated by Operators and Service Providers. They provide the platform on which the access projects thrive.
The UnICC End User is the secondary project to the UnICC OFC project designed to seamlessly connect the networks of the main campuses of selected universities to the networks of their corresponding medical colleges and teaching hospitals by utilizing the UnICC OFC project of deployed infrastructure fibre optic cable and its associated equipment and provisioning of UnICC End-User Equipment. The provision of equipment enhances the usefulness of the project and encourages the universities to maintain the infrastructure thus guaranteeing the sustainability of the two projects (OFC & End-User Electronics).The UnICC project facilitates research, collaboration and enhancement of education and digital lifestyle in the Universities and tertiary institutions.
Electronic last mile user-devices including video conferencing system, CCTV system, smart classroom, data centers and IP telephone systems will be installed at the institutions.
The UnICC is a support project to the National Universities Commissions’ Nigerian Research and Education Network (NgREN) project and its main objective is to deliver broadband infrastructure and access to facilitate research and learning using state of the art technology.
The UnICC Project was 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 approaches to the implementation of the project:
I. Wireless Satellite Broadband and Optic Fibre interconnectivity between Universities and their corresponding Colleges of Medicine/Teaching Hospitals.
II. Wireless Satellite Broadband and Optic Fibre interconnectivity between main campus of Universities and Annex Campus systems installed at the institutions.
