   UNIBEL: Network for Byelorussian Science and Education

                Full Internet in Belarus

                    December, 1994



Currently the UNIBEL Network joins the most advanced universities,
research institutes, government and public ogranizations
dealing with science and education. UNIBEL is a result of joint
efforts of these institutions and keeps tight contacts with
all organizations and persons interested in developing academic
and research networking in Belarus. UNIBEL is supported by
Ministry of Education and Science of Republic Belarus, State
Commitee of Science and Technology and Byelorussian Foundation
for Fundamental Research.

UNIBEL is involved in several projects intended to develop and
improve networking infrastructure in Belarus, such as:
- "Research and Development Computer Network of the Republic
   of Belarus";
- "Networking in Education: Ministry's Computer Network for
   Administrative Purposes";
- "Electronic Communications in High and Secondary Schools",
   etc.

UNIBEL Network was registered in RIPE in December 1993
and IP numbers were assigned. UNIBEL is full national member
of TERENA, EARN and CEENet.

Since the begining of December the users of UNIBEL can be
provided with full Internet services. Dedicated 9.6 Kbps
line Minsk-Warsaw has been established and IP-connection
has been put into operation due to great assistance of
Polish Academic and Research Network NASK.

Additionaly UNIBEL has an access to Internet through
EUnet/Relcom network (Moscow) and UARNET (Lvov, Ukraine)
via dial-up lines.

Dedicated line to Moscow (FREEnet) was ordered and PTT licence
was obtained. In future a satellite station will be installed
with assistance of Poland (NASK) and CEENet. This satellite
connection will replace the dedicated line Minsk-Warsaw.
