UT Arlington Sustains Student Success with Smart, Agile Juniper Network

University of Texas at Arlington, located in the heart of Dallas-Fort Worth - the second largest institution in The University of Texas system - has been widely recognized as a best value in education by Forbes and others. When the COVID-19 pandemic first swept Texas, UTA quickly pivoted to e-learning and remote work. That agility was enabled by AI-driven Juniper networking from the classrooms and research labs to the data center and cloud apps.

Business Challenge

UTA is in the midst of a multiyear journey of IT transformation, consolidating applications, moving to the cloud, and building a network that is fast, reliable, and above all, flexible as new requirements emerge. The strategy has been to move to SaaS-based cloud services to support the use of modern applications and to support the 24x7 access needed for today’s students. Brand-new Juniper Mist Wi-Fi make it possible for students to study and learn anywhere on campus. AI-driven operations deliver superior network user experiences, while streamlining IT support.

At UTA, students, researchers, and faculty can continue to learn and lead, whether in synchronous, asynchronous, or hybrid modes. With a flexible Juniper network, UTA is ready for whatever the future holds.
