Lanka Government Network (LGN), a Government intended project has completed its first phase of completion under the supervision of Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT), covering five provinces in the country. This ambitious LGN project implementation was carried out as a strategic project of the Re-Engineering Government programme of Information and Communication Technology Agency of Sri Lanka (ICTA), functioning under the Presidential Secretariat.
This programme aims towards connecting public serving Government offices, like ministries, departments as well as district and divisional secretariats via a single unified network. SLT will be providing a multiple range of products, which include voice, video, broadband internet, networking and hosting services. It further facilitates communities on the network by giving prompt online access to software driven user interface, which enhances the effectiveness of service delivery in the office environment.
In the first stage this programme was working towards providing connectivity to 325 government offices including offices in the Western, Central, Southern, Uva and Sabaragamuwa provinces, through SLT's intelligent communication solution using advanced Internet Protocol (IP) technology.
