The NIN definition
The NIN definition:
National information network is the plat form for the broadband plan of the Islamic Republic of Iran, as a network of Internet-based networks with switches and routers and data centers, so that internal access requests for information stored in internal data centers by no means do not roam outside the country for the sole purpose of higher efficiency and providing for national cyber security infrastructure maturity; NIN allows the creation of intranet and private and secure internal networks.
: The NIN governing Requirements
A network of communication infrastructure with an independent management system;
A completely independent and protected network interacting with other networks including Internet;
Ability to offer a variety of content and a variety of global communication services for people with quality assurances mechanisms, including mobility;
capability of providing a variety of secure services, including digital encryption and digital signature;
Ability to establish secure and stable communications between all devices and vital data exchange centers;
High-end network with a network consisting of data centers and hosting
: The NIN architecture policies
Independency: nondomestic services should be substituted with domestic services and applications to form internal ecosystems with value chain defined through NIN providing for healthy competition.
Capability and resiliency: NIN topology should provide for resiliency and huge capacity in core and edge network with high availability in response to projected increasing bandwidth demand for content comprising half of the whole traffic,
Security: NIN as a territory network must protect its own entities and assets.
Interactivity: Capable of interacting with other networks.
: The NIN Architecture principles
Private & public networks: NIN must have private and secure networks with redundant physical links, particular data centers and disaster recovery sites as a vital infrastructure for e-government. At present, ministries, organizations and all branches have connected to private network in the country since 2013 and there are generally secure data centers with e-gov propose.
ETE Services: NIN has to have end to end reference architecture to deliver a range of network and content services to end users. In addition to general NBN principles, we have also considered some extra policies such as independency and interactivity to design NIN architecture. Based on the NIN architecture, Public DNS, IXPs and CDNs play main role to localize domestic content services and internet traffic. BY localizing the latency, the cost will reduce and the QoS especially for video services will increase.
Broadband Services with acceptable QoS: NIN has to provide high-quality, affordable and high-speed broadband services to all. Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) have been defined for the broadband accesses to ensure comfortable experience for Web Browsing, VoIP, Streaming and Interactive Video with acceptable QoS for end users. At present, all operators have to respect to these KPIs.
High Availability: NIN topology has to be resilient with huge capacity in core and edge networks. TCI as a government company has implemented the majority of this topology and capacity in during the fifth plan.
