NKN is now being looked as the harbinger of change in our knowledge society but this also brings together the responsibility to continuously look forward to provide the much required impetus to R&D initiatives related to networking technology.
NKN understands the requirement of R&D initiatives without a profit motive and therefore took a step forward in facilitation of this cause. The team comprising of zealous engineers and networking experts have worked over past few years to develop the first set of NKN products and services.
NKN network is designed with the aim of providing:
- Highest level of availability Robust & reliable connectivity
- Highest level of Scalability (specifically planned to match the unknown future demands which cannot be envisaged currently)
