Preparing South Korea for the future is Kyonggi University's heritage and its mission. Founded in 1947 to train kindergarten teachers, the school has grown to include undergraduate and graduate programs ranging from the arts and humanities to architecture and engineering. University needed to upgrade its data infrastructure. Data bottlenecks interfered with the administrative system that manages the university's daily operations, delaying vital functions from course scheduling to payroll processing.

After careful comparison, the university found that only 3Com offered the combination of established reliability, high value, and future-proofed performance it required.
