Information about the project
Trans-Eurasian Information Super Highway
Trans-Eurasian Information Superhighway (TASIM) project is a major regional initiative (put forward by the Government of Azerbaijan in 2008) aiming at creation of transnational fiber-optic backbone targeting primarily the countries of Eurasia from Western Europe to East Asia. The project is recognized by international community as important ICT project as reflected in UN General Assembly resolutions adopted in 2009 and 2012. TASIM will build its own active, centrally managed network on top of existing fiber-optic networks provided by participating operators (TASIM Consortium) and will leverage the transit infrastructure to provide affordable connectivity to land-locked countries of Eurasia and beyond.
