University Fortifies Network to Bolster ICT and Research Levels
A leading research university in Queensland, Australia, James Cook University (JCU) conducts internationally recognized research into tropical life. Its mission is to find ways to combat threats facing the Great Barrier Reef, save the world’s plants and animals from climate change, eliminate parasitic diseases, and conduct numerous other related activities. JCU turned to Juniper data center and campus switches to connect approximately 27,000 students and staff to a cloud-ready network that improves its ICT service levels and its data sharing, collaboration, and research outcomes.
- Researchers can exchange massive files with peers across great distances in a fraction of the time it took previously.
- JCU has segmented its network for resiliency, an approach that contains the impact of a failure or breach to deliver better, more consistent user experiences.
- Students now have anytime access to more than 49,000 lecture recordings.
- Juniper power-efficient switches align with the university’s sustainability focus.
