Welcome to the Janet Scotland microsite for customers in Scotland.These pages contain information for and about the Janet community in Scotland.  Janet connects Scotland's Higher Education Institutes and Further Education Colleges and Research organisations.  It provides backhaul connectivity for Scotland's Schools network, Glow, and for the 32 Local Authorities in Scotland.


Two Implementing Shibboleth Courses will be running in Glasgow on the 8th and 9th July.  The first is for Identity Providers and the second for Service Providers.

A live online course in Hands on Security Testing is also offered on the 10th July.

Full details are available at: https://www.ja.net/training.


This is the usual annual Scotland version of the NHS-HE Forum which has run as an additional, separate event since 2006 to particularly focus on the NHS-HE connectivity and shared content challenges in Scotland.

It last met in October 2012 and has been waiting on news on the Scotland Wide Area Network (SWAN) procurement which is set to replace N3 as the NHS network in Scotland. Ron MacDonald, Head of National Infrastructure Services at NHS National Services Scotland has agreed to be the key note speaker.


Please put the 10th July in your diaries for the next Janet Scotland Briefing Day.  

This year we will be holding both events on the same day, so you can choose whether to come to the whole day or a half day.

The Strategic part will be held in the morning, followed by lunch and the technical day in the afternoon.  We hope to record and videostream the event.  The programme has yet to be finalised.

The venue is the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh:http://www.rcsed.ac.uk
