Regional Networks (MANs)

Regional Delivery Options

Janet services are delivered to most of our customers via three different means: Regional Network Operators, Janet itself and companies which operate under bespoke contracts. Regional Network Operators (RNOs) are companies and regional consortia of higher and further education institutions delivering Janet services to tertiary education: each operates a high-performance multi-service telecommunications network within its geographical area.

Following a review of the mechanisms for delivery of Janet service and subsequent implementation of its recommendations, most Janet customers are now served through regional networks operated directly by Janet.

Below is a list of historical documents related to the review of Janet regional delivery mechanisms.

The following documents are available to read below.

  • November 2009: Regional Delivery Review Paper - Executive Summary
  • November 2009: Regional Delivery Review Paper
  • October 2009: Regional Delivery Update
  • July 2009: A copy of a letter was sent to all institutions connected to an RNO. A more detailed paper explaining the background and outcomes of the review was also made available.
