Southern Institute of Technology rolls out Allied Telesis technology across NZ

“SIT has already enjoyed several years’ worth of high performance online connectivity with two different generations of Allied Telesis equipment."

Allied Telesis has partnered with the Southern Institute of Technology (SIT) in New Zealand, in a move designed to create a new network that is “robust, scalable, and easy to manage.”

The Southern Institute of Technology (SIT) is a tertiary education institution, with multiple campuses throughout the South Island of New Zealand.

Approximately 13,000 students in New Zealand and around the globe use SIT’s facilities, with many of them studying online via “SIT2LRN”, SIT’s distance learning service.

In 2012, SIT began the process of upgrading its network infrastructure to create a strong and scalable solution that would fulfil all their network requirements, both now and into the future.

“SIT has already enjoyed several years’ worth of high performance online connectivity with two different generations of Allied Telesis equipment,” says Patsy Eade, Human Resources Manager, SIT.

“Starting with a network based around the SwitchBlade 4000 Series core chassis switch, SIT later upgraded its network to use the extremely successful SwitchBlade x908 Modular Chassis core switches.”

For its latest upgrade, and against competing rivals, Eade says SIT again chose an Allied Telesis solution.

Allied Telesis, in partnership with Spark Digital, have deployed a new network is based around the SwitchBlade x8100 Series of next-generation core chassis switches, which feature the autonomous Allied Telesis Management Framework (AMF).

“SIT is now benefitting from numerous network performance improvements,” Eade adds.

“It is a large and complex network, that connects all campuses, but thanks to the power of AMF, the organisation now enjoys simplified and automated network management.

“Change management in particular is much improved. AMF automates change across the whole network so that a task which would have previously taken hours can now be achieved in 10 minutes.

“Not only is it faster, it is also more accurate. AMF eliminates the risk of errors and inconsistencies when making changes across the network. These valuable features mean that AMF saves SIT considerable time and money.”

In education, Eade believes students and staff expect a fast, modern and reliable network.

“The upgrade has met these requirements and provided SIT with a solid platform,” Eade adds.
