SWAN

SWANState Wide Area Network (SWAN) will be a key factor for successful implementation of e-Governance in the state of Manipur. Therefore, Department of IT,     Government of Manipur with Manipur State Information Technology (MSITS) proposed to establish State Wide Area Network (SWAN) in Manipur. This network shall have a Data, Voice and Video transmission and dissemination. The network shall be utilized for the inter-Departmental connectivity, multi-user and multi-service facilities, video conferencing, email, on-line application processing and query. SWAN shall enable better communication and information sharing to allow the officers to work more effectively, resulting in cohesive administration. The implementation of SWAN will cover strengthening of existing and future intranet at the State Secretariat, CM secretariat, Government Departments in the state capital, District Headquarters, Sub-Divisions and Block headquarters with the existing and proposed gateway infrastructure. SWAN shall be a secured network for the state of Manipur and would be based on VSAT and Leased Circuit. In order to implement SWAN in Manipur, we have identified 42 Points of Presences (PoPs) to be located at State Headquarter, District Headquarters, Sub-divisional Headquarters and Block Headquarters.

1. The salient features of the proposed network are:

  • Implementation of Manipur State Wide Network (MANIPUR SWAN) has been envisaged in a phased manner.
