Education at all levels is one of the major driver of sustainable development in any nation. The number of institutions of higher learning and enrollment in Africa has continued to increase significantly over the last few years. However, the needs of the knowledge society is still yet to be met due to challenges of overcrowding, infrastructure deficiencies, and inadequate access to international knowledge. In this paper, we developed a robust network architecture that enables real-time information exchange within and among connected campuses using connections of local networks and mobile applications. Campus Bridge Information Grid (CBRIG) is a novel initiative that meets the information and social needs of staff, faculty, and students of tertiary institutions in developing nations. The expanded version of CBRIG named i-Spider Information Grid (i-SPIG), will facilitate real-time information exchange among university campuses that are already on the C-BRIG platform. The proposed framework will help in boosting the productivity of every member of the university community, and foster research collaborations and social interactions among several institutions that are physical separated but digitally connected
