Enhancing the Network for Mobile Learning and Research
Aiming to reduce response-time slowdowns while establishing a world-class campus network, Yonsei University overhauled its switch backbone to support speeds up to 100 Gbps.
Yonsei University sought to relieve network bottlenecks that were becoming all too frequent. An overhaul of its Ethernet backbone did the trick, while also paving the way to high-bandwidth applications such as mobile learning, global communications, and large-scale research.
The university can now scale capacity both by bandwidth and by port, allowing it to support mobile demand and traffic surges over time. Using virtual chassis technology in the switches has allowed the university to reduce management complexity and operational expenses.
