Bolstering the Core Helps Build Real-Time Digital Campus
The University of Tsukuba revamped its core network so it could support the latest technologies, including connectivity to the SINET5 research network.
The University of Tsukuba was founded in 1973 to transform university education in Japan and make it open to all. Its two-campus network needed faster speeds and support for new technologies to stay current and competitive.
An outdated network couldn’t support the latest technologies, and the university wanted an open, secure foundation for success in the digital world. Staff were also finding it difficult to manage switches in separate locations and isolated systems that were added to the network over time.
When it consolidated switches in a single location, the university reduced its administrative load and support costs. It also gained support for the latest technologies, such as SINET5 connectivity, cloud services, and smart devices.
