Christchurch-based specialist services provider, Inde Technology, has completed a major overhaul of Lincoln University’s campus network, deploying Huawei’s Agile Education Campus Network Solution to deliver higher bandwidth and improved Wi-Fi coverage.
Deployed through collaboration with the vendor and distributor, Atlas Gentech, the rollout is designed to boost connectivity for all users on campus, improving performing operations and maintenance in the process.
Huawei Enterprise Network Product Line and Switch Domain general manager, Wang Shihongm said ICT products played a crucial support role in modern education systems.
“For every country in the world, education IT construction has become the inevitable route towards sustainable education development and transformation,” he said.
“Huawei is dedicated to becoming the best ICT partner, helping to improve teaching quality and further bridge the ‘digital divide’.”
Shihongm said Huawei’s unified network solution introduces a centralised management platform for all connected devices, whether accessing the network via Wi-Fi, Ethernet, mobile, or other remote services.
To streamline the logon process the network introduces identity-based access in place of the old MAC address system, allowing users to access the network on any device, anywhere they wish using a single login.
In partnership with Inde Technology, the solution utilised at Lincoln University uses the vendor’s flagship S12700 Agile Switch and incorporates a range of other advance technologies and features which includes wired and wireless convergence.
Lincoln joins a host of high-profile universities worldwide now using Huawei’s agile networks, such as the UK’s Newcastle University, China’s Tsinghua University and Nanjing University, Ethiopia’s Addis Ababa University, and Australia’s Southern Cross University.
