Executive Summary

The University of Malaya (UM) prides itself on its status as Malaysia's first university. The rapidly growing user population of 27,000 students and 2,200 academic staff require ubiquitous access to campus resources. This, coupled with increasingly bandwidth-hungry applications, meant that the campus-wide network had to keep up with both current and future demands. The 10-Gigabit multimode fiber cables provide big enough 'Pipes', but the university needed to upgrade the switches to make full use of this bandwidth. UM had been using 3Com H3C switches since 2005, albeit at the workgroup level, and had been upgrading them incrementally through chassis-based upgrades.
