3Com Switch 7700 Elevates Academics of Leading Korean University

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Located in the seaport city of Incheon, the first Korean city to open to westerners, Inha University today is incorporating western-style education into its curriculum. Previously, Inha relied on an ATM network consisting of equipment from a hodgepodge of vendors, including Cisco, Enterasys, Nortel, and 3Com. Although Inha used Gigabit Ethernet links in pockets of the 20-building, 10,000-node infrastructure, the LAN was unable to efficiently deliver the high-bandwidth files the school's academic programs required. After witnessing a demonstration of the Switch 7700 and comparing it with competing Enterasys and Nortel products, Inha University chose the feature-rich Gigabit Ethernet switch as the backbone of its network upgrade.
