Consortium to replace university's entire network

Consortium to replace university's entire network


A consortium which includes Cabletron Systems, Logical Networks and Data and Voice, has won a multimillion-dollar deal to provide a network and management solution to Adelaide University.

The network is known as "Project Odyssey" and is designed to provide IP services to more than 2500 staff and 14,000 students from over 7000 network points. It is being installed to improve business connectivity, and to support a Peoplesoft ERP system implementation, which is being rolled out concurrently.

Peter Nissen, from Adelaide University's Information Technology Services, said the Logical/Cabletron/Data and Voice consortium had won the project over several proposals from other network vendors and integrators.

"Adelaide was one of the first Australian universities to introduce a high-speed data network, but the network grew in a piecemeal way during the past decade," Nissen said.

"We are virtually going back to square one and replacing the entire network."
