Saudi Academic Research and Innovation Network (SARInet)
The Saudi Arabian King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST) has been mandated to undertake the planning and implementation phases of the SARInet. KACST has been leading the gradual introduction, adoption and penetration of a Next Generation National Research and Educational Network within Saudi Arabia, servicing the entire Academic and Research communities in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The network will provide a high-capacity Internet network and accompanying services to further improve the collaboration and knowledge sharing between the education and research institutions within Saudi Arabia. SARInet has been administered and operated by KACST, and a 1 Gbps link from SARInet to GÉANT has been implemented and was set operational by the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology since 2011.
