Enhanced UNEPnet Services in Arendal To enhance UNEPnet's services in Arendal, UIC has installed a Multi-Conference Unit allowing eight parties to partici- pate in the same conference. This serves UNEP-HQ when speaking to UNEP regional offices and UN-HQ. GRID- Arendal benefits from this system in its communication with its outposted offices in Sweden and Geneva, and other partners worldwide. The system contributes significantly to a reduction in travel costs and improves co-operation. By using the latest ISDN technology over satellite links, the conference studios at UNEP-HQ can automatically dial any ISDN video conference connection in the world through the Arendal Mercure station.
