What is SWAN (state wide area network)? - Definition from WhatIs.com


SWAN (state wide area network)

In India, SWAN is a government-subsidized project to create a state wide area network (WAN) that will improve government efficiency. SWAN was approved by the government of India in March 2005 and is targeted for completion in June 2010.

When the SWAN project is completed, government offices in each of India's 29 states and six union territories will be connected and able to support National e-Governance Plan (NEGP) initiatives for government-to-government and government-to-consumer services.

The SWAN backbone will support data, voice and video.
