Project aims and objectives

The University’s IT and telephone networks are getting old, running slowly and will reach the end of their working life within the next few years. The current system has been built up in a piecemeal fashion and there are regular ‘single points of failure’ across the campus. This project was initiated to upgrade the network and greatly improve the wired/wireless data and telephony networks.

An additional key aspect of the project is that the new network will be a great enabler for future technology and systems, although these are outside the scope of the upgrade project.
