Pern core network

PERN Core Network

  • Using the Existing Optical Fiber System of PTCL/NTC and IP/ATM backbone of NTC

  • The network design of PERN consists of three nodal points (PoPs) at Islamabad, Lahore and Karachi

  • The interconnectivity between Nodal Points is 50 Mbps.

  • The educational institutions are connected to their respective nodal point by minimum 2Mbps link from the nearest exchange of NTC/PTCL using OFS, DXX , DRS, Radio or VSAT

  • The 155 Mbps Internet Bandwidth is distributed at three nodal points.
