The government of India has set up distributed network in India for
sharing the knowledge among the higher learning Institutions in the year 2009
under Next Generation Services (NGN) and slowly-slowly it is expanding as the
distributed computing network becomes very popular now days due to low cost
involvement. This network is called as a National Knowledge Network (NKN) whose
main purpose is to connect all the Indian universities, research institutions,
research labs, digital libraries, countrywide classroom, etc. under one
platform. In the present work, sharing of different kinds of facilities under
NKN is demonstrated for the static step topology designed by the authors. The
different kinds of facilities are connected through step topology and a well known modeling
technique i.e. Unified Modeling
Language (UML) is used for demonstrating the UML class diagram for sharing of
all these facilities through step topology. Some experimental results are also demonstrated
for the topology.
