The Mozambique Research and Education Network, MoRENet was established by the Ministry of Science and Technology in 2005. The MoRENet project is a part of the ICT Policy Implementation Strategy. The NREN is a nationwide data network that will interconnect academic and research institutions, developing activities with non-profit purposes. The network, which is intended to be a framework for fast and efficient exchange of research data among its members, has as main philosophy to take advantage and make use of the already deployed fiber infrastructure in the country. The network accommodate both public and private academic institutions and research centers. MoRENet is one of the founding members of the UbuntuNet Alliance for Research and Education Networking.
The MoRENet Network has just expanded its connectivity counting now 80 institutions of higher education and research through dedicated connections 10-50 Mbps. All share a bandwidth of 310 Mbps for Internet access and other international higher education networks;
The 310Mbps result of two international links, one for Europe (London) through an international data communication service provider, SEACOM (155Mbps), and one for South Africa (155 Mbps) through AfricaConnect of UbuntuNet Project Alliance, which is a regional African network of Higher Education and Research.
In addition to the connectivity above, MoRENet is providing wireless networks on 16 university, to maximize access to the Internet by the academic community.
