Data Integration to deliver 10GB network infrastructure for LSBU
Aug 20, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
Data Integration, a network and system integrator owned by Xchanging, has announced the delivery of a 10GB network infrastructure for London South Bank University, or LSBU, as its incumbent IT partner.
Looking to meet both University and student application needs for the next five to seven years, LSBU is undertaking a technology refresh of its network infrastructure. Comprising upgrades of its Infoblox DNS management and Extreme Switching technology, the project sees the University migrating to a future-proofed infrastructure that delivers enhanced control and increased bandwidth.
Adrian Taylor, Chief Technology Officer at Data Integration, explains, "The University relies on IT services that are run between its two distribution centres. However, its network is now seven years old, and they increasingly want to run services that demand 10GB and have been experiencing capacity issues. We've been working with LSBU for over 8 years now, and as an accredited partner for both Infoblox and Extreme, we are ideally placed to deliver this upgrade with round the clock support for them."
Two years ago, Data Integration won a competitive open tender for a four-year contract to supply IT services and support to LSBU. Data Integration now provides LSBU with end-to-end LAN and security services covering its switching, firewall, remote access, and wireless requirements.
Phillip Wright, Network Manager at LSBU explains, "Our goal is to be the most admired UK University for creating professional opportunity, and this pivots around our ability to deliver network services so the time is right for a network refresh. We've trusted Data Integration for many years, their inherent knowledge of our IT infrastructure will make this a seamless project and we're fully confident in their ability to migrate our services whilst providing us with complete continuation of service."
