Huawei-3Com (H3C) is deploying a campus-wide converged network for Universiti Malaya (UM) under a RM4.5 million project, which will be implemented over two years.
“Through this deployment, the university will be able to implement high performance and cost effective voice, video and data communications applications,” according to a joint statement issued on Dec 20.
They said the new converged network was being built on H3C’s switches and would address immediate bandwidth and performance issues.
H3C designed a switched network solution providing a converged network to support greater multimedia services. The technology solution deployed offered high-performance and security while supporting the converged applications UM wanted to implement, such as video conferencing and VoIP.
The network backbones was ready for 10GB connection while more hotspots were added across the 750-acre campus while a full range of H3C’s switches products were applied in the network.-TheEdgeDaily
