Secure Converged 3Com Gigabit and Wireless Network Blocks 2.5 Million Attacks in for State College
At North Dakota State College of Science (NDSCS) students exchanged high-bandwidth files via the college's legacy Gigabit and wireless infrastructure. To continue to deliver secure, reliable, high-speed network services to a growing number of campus and remote students, NDSCS sought a more scalable Gigabit switching solution, a more resilient wireless infrastructure and a proven Intrusion Prevention System (IPS). NDSCS put its network upgrade requirements out to bid under North Dakota state procurement policies. After reviewing market offerings, the college selected a secure converged solution based on 3Com Gigabit core switches, 3Com wireless switches and IPS from TippingPoint, a division of 3Com.
