By CBR Staff Writer

The University of the East in the Philippines has selected Nortel to upgrade its IT infrastructure and to boost the performance of all its computerized and web applications systems.

According to Nortel, with this expansion project, University of the East (UE) students, faculty and personnel from all three campuses, Recto, Caloocan and UERM in Quezon City, are now connected via a single network using Nortel’s 10Gbps bandwidth and Passport 8600 ethernet routing systems. With this system, UE students, faculty and personnel can access UE’s centralized database.

With the technology upgrade in place, UE students and faculty can check their online portals, and upload and download various academic documents including student records, class schedules, grades and assignments with ease.

The upgrade can also support online classes and forums and collaboration with various sites and students around the world. In addition, UE’s 22 libraries are now connected to UE’s central database and can now provide an updated pool of journals, books, and other learning materials.

UE is deploying the Nortel Ethernet Routing Switch 8600, a chassis-based ethernet switch supporting up to 384Gb ethernet ports and 96 10Gb ethernet ports, as well as WAN connectivity via ATM, point of sale, and wave division multiplexing technologies.

Casimiro Obillo, Jr, senior assistant director of management information systems department at UE, said: Nortel’s new system will allow us to cater to the growing academic and technological needs of UE students and faculty by providing them with a medium they can use to instantly access the most up-to-date and content-rich multimedia resources. These upgrades enable UE and its students -to keep up with technological innovation that provides UE students a competitive edge as they enter the real world.
