Joint Universities Computer Centre enables real-time collaboration

Hong Kong's Joint Universities Computer Centre has announced that it is enabling real-time collaboration for universities with Nortel's Metro Ethernet technology.

By CBR Staff Writer

Faculty and students of the Joint Universities Computer Centre’s (JUCC) eight member universities will be able to communicate and collaborate in real-time with their counterparts in Asia and around the world.

Nortel said that the new JUCC network significantly enhances collaborative research and resource-sharing capabilities for the member universities, providing instant online access to high-bandwidth services such as library databases, web-based courses, distance learning, telemedicine, multimedia applications, video conferencing and more.

Other universities, both local and overseas, will connect to the new Metro Ethernet infrastructure via JUCC’s existing wide area network (WAN) – the Hong Kong academic and research network, or HARNET.

JUCC is deploying Nortel’s Optical Multiservice Edge 6500 and Optical Metro 5000 Series platforms – components of Nortel’s Metro Ethernet services – to provide Gigabit Ethernet and Fiber Channel connectivity for the collaborative research network and for inter-university data storage applications.

Member institutions of the JUCC initiative include the University of Hong Kong, City University of Hong Kong, Lingnan University and the Hong Kong Institute of Education.
