Fujitsu Network Communications Joins BTI Systems in Demonstrating Cost-efficient, High- Bandwidth Solutions for Educational Institutions
Ottawa — Friday, October 15, 2010 // BTI Systems, the company that redefines metro service delivery, today announced their upcoming participation in a speaking presentation at the Fall 2010 Internet2 Member Meeting in Atlanta, Ga. on the topic of “A Simple, High Availability, High Performance Approach to Expanding Education Networks” on Nov. 4 from 10:30am-11:45am.
The rise of digitized information, distance-based collaborative research, and expansion of online education technology solutions are challenging administrators to adapt to a new wave connected students, researchers, and administrative staff that expect and need access to high-bandwidth services. To address these “networking 2.0” requirements, administrators are looking for network solutions that provide high capacity, flexible, connectivity on a network that also simplifies their operations.
Jason Smith, Technical Solutions Marketing Manager for BTI Systems will discuss how to enable an efficient packet optical network foundation leveraging Ethernet-based connectivity with the ability to enforce SLAs, so that traffic is guaranteed over the network, using Connection-Oriented Ethernet. This approach will be exemplified with case studies that provide regional networks that connect university, industry and government partners across campus locations and provide them with advanced Internet research and distance learning capabilities.
“The R&E community is always on the cutting edge of campus, wide area, and regional networking—this holds especially true with the requirements to serve increasingly connected students and the reliance on online datasets for research,” said Smith. “The joint discussion, with Fujitsu Networks Communications, will demonstrate an effective and converged strategy, leveraging the latest network technologies, to address the expanding importance of the network as an integral component for learning, research, and collaboration.”
