Increased capacity for Zoom users

100 000 more users now have access to the e-meeting service Zoom. This makes it easier for higher education institutions, HEIs, in the Nordic countries to hold their meetings and classes remotely.

Nordunet, a collaboration organisation for the HEIs in the Nordic countries, organised the added capacity this last weekend. In total, 120 000 users can now be on Zoom at the same time.

Sunet is the Swedish representative of Nordunet. Sunet is part of the Swedish Research Council, and at the same time a research infrastructure responsible for fulfilling the needs for data communication and IT services of Swedish HEIs.
