The semi-annual report of AzScienceNet Network Management Center of the Institute of Information Technology of ANAS for 2021 was discussed.
The report was presented by the head of the Center, PhD in Technical Sciences Babek Nabiyev, who spoke about the expansion of the infrastructure of the AzScienceNet network within 6 months of scientific and innovative activities. He noted the measures taken to connect new computers of institutes and organizations of ANAS, to reconstruct the network infrastructure on the basis of intelligent switches, to increase memory and computing resources in order to increase the technical capabilities of AzScienceNet.
He said that the installation of technical equipment for security and monitoring systems, the establishment of a Wi-Fi network and Eduroam service in the institutions of ANAS, the provision of information security and monitoring systems of AzScienceNet are among the activities carried out within the scientific and innovative activities.
The speaker spoke about the work carried out to integrate the AzScienceNet network into the GEANT network, 3Gbit / sec. He noted that work was being done to effectively use Internet traffic, certain measures were taken to connect the GRID research center under the Institute of Physics of ANAS to the GEANT network and install telecommunications equipment purchased under the EapConnect project.
B.Nabiyev noted that the organization of Internet services in the AzScienceNet network, expansion and operation of the information system (SMS and e-mail) via AzScienceNet, the use of new services (Wi-Fi, Eduroam, Edugain, etc.) in the institutes and organizations of ANAS are one of the works done within the organization of internet services in AzScienceNet.
He said that work is underway to use the services of AzScienceNet network of higher and scientific institutions of the country, to organize the use of AzScienceNet network Cloud Computing, OwnCloud, as well as Eduroam services in these institutions.
The speaker also spoke about the work done to update the software of AzScienceNet for 6 months. He noted that in this context, new software has been installed in the AzScienceNet network to conduct security and monitoring work more efficiently, and support has been provided for downloading and configuring software and certificates related to e-signatures, accounting and human resources.
