As it moved to a restructured education system, Settle College expected an influx of new students accessing media studies online, supported from two campuses instead of one.
John Smith, ICT Network Manager, Settle College
Settle is a technology college, so it is vital that it be seen as leading the way with the technical content of its courses, with the role its IT group plays in the learning environment, and with its own network and telephony.
The existing network at the college was unable to meet the needs of the expanded school or deliver the technology courses offered, so the college had to do something about its aging network—and fast!
The college evaluated a number of proposals and selected Net-Ctrl, which in turn proposed a Juniper Networks solution based on the EX Series Ethernet Switches.
The new switches have greatly improved network performance by providing a higher level of throughput and redundancy, along with a small environmental footprint and sizeable cost and efficiency improvements.
