The Hong Kong Examinations Authority is Directly Connected to HARNET

The Hong Kong Examinations Authority (HKEA) has long been connected to the Hong Kong Academic and Research Network (HARNET) through a router set up in the HKU Computer Centre .  With HKEA's increasing use of the HARNET and Internet, HKEA has applied and obtained endorsement from the Joint Universities Computer Centre (JUCC) to join HARNET via a direct T1 (1544 Kbps) connection link from HKEA.  The migration was smoothly carried out in early January this year with the help of our Centre's colleagues.  This new link enables the HKEA to have a direct and fast link to the HARNET and the Internet, and facilitates the HKEA on various kinds of applications including the Joint University Programs Admission System (JUPAS) applications and improve the co-operation between HKEA and other member universities of the HARNET.
