Avaya has helped a Philadelphia-based university implement a new information technology infrastructure for the university to handle mobile technology demands of its 4,000 administrators, faculty and students.
The University of the Sciences is utilizing Avaya’s Virtual Services Platform 9000 core switches and Ethernet Routing Switches 5000 Series products, the company said Monday.
According to Avaya, the new IT infrastructure aims to remove bottlenecks and offers added bandwidth capacity to address the increased use of mobile technologies on campus such as tablets and smartphones.
“The individuals who rely on our network feel it is as vital as electricity or any other core utility,” said Mark Nestor, the university’s associate provost and chief information officer.
“They simply don’t have patience with outages,” Nestor said.
The ethernet and network switches also feature reliable properties needed for telephony, classroom management and web-based learning.
CSDNET, an Avaya Connect channel partner, designed and marketed the infrastructure for the university.
