Thailand’s First Work Unit to Be Connected to the Internet System
The Institute of Academic Resource Services was assigned by the University to study and connect the University’s Computing Network to the Internet System. The Internet System was installed and started to provide services on July 27th, 1992, making Chulalongkorn University the first work unit in Thailand that was able to connect with the Internet System throughout 24 hours. The University hired the 9600 Bids per Minute communication circuit from the Communications Authority of Thailand in order to connect with the Internet System of UUNET Technologies in the U.S.A. Later many other organizations have been connected online with the Internet Network via Chulalongkorn University. This network is called “THAI net” and it is the first network in Thailand that has a Gateway to the Internet Net work.
