Enablers: in terms of net- work infrastructure, MoRENet is based on fiber optic and SDH-STM technology with 5 Point of Presences (PoPs), 155 Mbps for the backbone as well as 34 Mbps for connecting institutions. It also adds 2 international links of 155Mbps for shared Internet traffic, one for SEACOM and the other connecting the Ubun- tuNet Alliance network; Challenges: the unavailability of operational equipment in the national market involved their external acquisition and corresponding delays; the metropolitan fiber optic infrastructure coverage was insufficient, which entailed carrying out engineering works to bring connectivity to the institutions; the cases of electric power failure in the country are frequent, as well as natural catastrophes
