This service provides a connection to and use of the shared research and education backbone network – the UbuntuNet REN Backbone. This allows connected Member NRENs to exchange traffic with each other and to backhaul traffic to and from External Gateways on the Regional Backbone. The service also provides transit to and from other NRENs and many commodity networks within Africa. The service provides no transit interconnections that involve the transport of traffic via circuits between Africa any other continents, and the Alliance makes no claims that all NRENs located in Africa or all commodity networks located in Africa can be reached via the UbuntuNet REN Backbone.
