Black Sea Interconnection

BSI (Black Sea Interconnection) project objective was to bridge the digital divide that exists between the South Caucasus countries and Europe by establishing a regional research and education network in the South Caucasus and connecting it to GÉANT network.

The project involved the development of strategies for interconnecting the existing infrastructures in the region, realization of the connections and supplying operational support for the established network. The existence of interconnections between the South Caucasus countries and connection to GÉANT2 with reasonable capacities enabled introduction of new services to the region and has been an important step towards the integration of the scientific potential in the region with Europe.
