CONNECT and Pervasive Nation

HEAnet and Science Foundation Ireland Projects

The CONNECT Centre for Future Networks and Communications was awarded €1.8 million by Science Foundation Ireland in January 2016 for Pervasive Nation – a national wireless Internet of Things (IoT) research infrastructure. The Pervasive Nation network will initially be rolled out across ten third-level campuses before going nationwide. Pervasive Nation aims to be a resource for industry, government and academia, acting as a strong catalyst for IoT research and innovation. HEAnet’s high-speed network will provide connectivity and backhaul for the Pervasive Nation wireless antennas.
