Abstract: Many developing countries do not get benefits from the Internet as the network infrastructure is not yet built due to economic or administrative restrictions of these region. Asian Internet Interconnection Initiatives (AI3) has been developing a research consortium of 29 partner institutions in 13 countries utilizing an Internet infrastructure over a satellite links. The project aims to develop partnerships and human networks to foster researchers within the regions to carry out research satellite Internet and to develop their regions. We have successfully conducted productive research and also developed a distance-learning environment as a result of more than a decade of experiments. This paper aims to share the operational know-how and results of research from AI3 activities to construct a network and applications that would support developing regions.
