Assam Wide Area Network (ASWAN) has helped the Information and Technology Department to create an active communication network in the state covering all districts, sub-divisional offices, circle and block offices through 304 POPs in Assam with a minimum of 2 Mbps links. A robust communication corridor is the first and foremost requirement for the successful implementation of e-Governance projects. State wide Area Network helps us establish the said communication corridor.
This network will facilitate the smooth rollout of e-Governance initiatives across departments. Similarly the horizontal connectivity project will eventually connect all government offices in the state through the ASWAN POPs.
o 288 SWAN PoPs have been commissioned in the state so far
o 114 POPs are currently being used by National Registrar of Citizens (NRC) updation Programme.
o 160 POPs of ASWAN are used by the e-District project
