Education & Research

We align institution and IT expectations to maximise past network investments and exploit best practice and new technology to create cost effective agile, resilient, secure and high performing networks tailored to education and research collaborations and digital service delivery & support anytime, anyplace, anywhere

Education and Research networks differ to corporate networks in terms of utilisation, availability, end users, control and complexity.  Support varies from a single person to large teams.

A resilient secure campus network is mission critical, complex and costly. 

 

Broad Consultation, Network Architecture &  commercial astuteness are key to attaining expected outcomes

Traditional campus network boundaries now extends to the data centre, cloud, workplace, and home.  Knowing where to invest & what to configure, operate and manage is key for success
