Sunet (Swedish University Computer Network) under scrutiny

Evaluation report from the international expert panel

An international expert Panel has been invited by the Swedish Research Council (VR) to evaluate Sunet (Swedish University Computer Network), which is the national research and education network (NREN) of Sweden. The conclusions and recommendations of the Panel are presented in this report. For instance the Panel observed that Sunet customers are satisfied with most services and especially the powerful and reliable network (OptoSunet). The quality is generally high and the products well supported. However the Panel recommends that a higher-level strategy, providing a clear vision of Sunet’s overall mission, aims and plan, is developed for 2015−2019. The Panel also suggests that VR should empower Sunet by organising it as a discrete VR-unit, and provide a clear delegation of operational authority to the Sunet Board and management.
