The Technological Poles of the project MedNet'U - Mediterranean Network of Universities connected with the International Telematic University UNINETTUNO
The International Telematic University UNINETTUNO inherits the network of Universities and Institutions of the MedNet'U project, an EU project within the Eumedis program, the purpose of which was the creation of a Distance Euro-Mediterranean University for the university education and continuous vocational training.
The UNINETTUNO together with the MedNet'U partners has created the following Technological Poles:
Institut Supérieur de Gestion et de Planification (Bordj El Kiffan, Algeria)
Université Djillal Liabès de Sidi-bel-Abbès (Sidi-bel-Abbès, Algeria)
Cairo University (Cairo, Egitto)
Helwan University (Cairo, Egitto)
Egyptian Association Incubator (Nasr City, Cairo, Egitto)
Fondation Sophia Antipolis (Valbonne, Francia)
Institut National Polytechnique de Grenoble (Grenoble, Francia)
Aegean University (Lesvos, Grecia)
University of Crete (Creta, Grecia)
Jordan University of Science and Technology (Irbid, Jordan)
Yarmouk University (Irbid, Jordan)
Université Cadi Ayyad - https://www.uca.ma/ (Marrakech, Marocco)
Ministère de l'Emploi, de la Formation Professionnelle, du Développement Social et de la Solidarité (Rabat, Marocco)
Université Ibn Zohr (Agadir, Marocco)

It is important to note that Technological Pole uses the UNINETTUNO e-learning platform which is a web application rich of multi-media materials; therefore it is important to have a Broadband Internet connection.
Several Personal Computers must be available for the users; the number must be proportioned to the total number of the students. Each personal computer must have the following minimum requirements: screen resolution 1024x768 pixel, a 3 GHz processor, 4 GB RAM, 300 GB HD, DVD RW;
An Integrated System(Hardware/Software) of Video Conference will allow the users of the Technological Pole to interact with the other centers of UNINETTUNO. The Video Conference System must support the H323 standard protocol for videoconference over Internet and it must have a public IP address.
A Large Display will serve two functionalities: it will allow the students to follow demonstration of a Tutor and it will allow all theusers to follow a videoconference.For a Large Display either a LCD Monitor of 40-50 inch or a projector with a screen can be used.
A TV set with a satellite antenna and decoder will allow the users to follow all the schedules broadcasted by UNINETTUNO Free on Air on the satellite channel UniNettuno University TV.
Technical data: Satellite: HotBird 13° Est; Frequency: 11804,2 MHz; Polarisation: vertical; SymbolRate: 27,5 Msym/s; FEC: 02/3
The television receiver can also be the one integrated in the LCD Monitor.
The Technological Pole is completed with the Servers that allow the Personal Computers to access Internet. If the Technological Pole is not inside an already existent LAN; the Servers shall perform the following tasks: Firewall, Proxy, Domain Controller. Switches and Ethernet cables will complete the LAN.
