Data Network Solutions - Success Story - ASU
In 2003 Appalachian State University needed to upgrade the campus
network to increase security, enhance mobility, and support the never ending onslaught of new IP connected devices.
Working with DNS and Enterasys Networks, they achieved these goals and many more. Wrapped around a fully redundant,
robust network core, Enterasys’ Policy enabled switching allows granular classification and shaping of network traffic
down to the user. Registered, authenticated users get the access they need for the job they need to perform from
anywhere regardless of connection type (wired versus wireless). Unregistered guests are allowed access but contained
under a separate access policy isolating them from critical university systems. Included in the solution are a
registration portal, scanning solution, quarantine capability and remediation tools.
Implementing these technologies in a traditional university ‘open computing’ environment was no easy task.
