Otago University prepares for traffic management partnership

The University of Otago has issued a request for information that will result in a formal Request for Proposal by an internet traffic management provider.

At this stage, the university wants information about systems and services for the management of user internet access and preventing download of malicious content.

The users consist of about 21,000 students and 5,000 staff, and there are approximately 12,000 university-owned desktops and laptops. The systems and services need to be “robust, scalable and intuitive”, according to the RFI documents.

The university expects between 8000 and 10,000 separate systems to connect to the internet at some point each day.

The university uses a variety of Windows and Mac OS X desktops with a small number of systems running different versions of Linux.

The RFI closes on 24 November.
