Some of the features of Federal Network (FedNet) include:
- Secured infrastructure
FedNet has been implemented with a secure architecture for the connected government entities, which enhance the UAE’s cyber security. This is done through the secured and private network, Multi-protocol Label Switching (MPLS) cloud.
- Cloud computing
The FedNet programme will deliver a cloud environment which is scalable on demand, has a large computing and storage capacity and is available 24x7x365.
- Central hosting
FedNet is built around a central hosting concept whereby Mobile Government services and applications can be provided quickly using the latest cloud synchronisation and automation technologies.
- High availability
High availability is a fundamental principal of the FedNet’s design. This means that there are no single points of failure within the FedNet network structure.
- Cost saving
FedNet saves government costs through the consolidation of shared government services and reducing the internet footprint within the UAE.
The scope of FedNet extends to all government entities in the UAE. FedNet is being implemented in local government entities in phases. Once implemented, FedNet will enable governments to exchange data and services across the UAE.
FedNet has the potential of expanding services and solutions it provides depending on the increasing future needs of the government entities.
