UNE Future Campus Parramatta

AARNet’s high performing network and Unified Communications Exchange service were showcased at the opening of the state-of-the-art UNE Future Campus in Parramatta.

In an Australian first for the higher education sector, AARNet’s Unified Communications Exchange enabled an immersive video conference experience between three-screen Cisco TelePresence systems located at two different universities – UNE Future Campus in Parramatta and Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne.

AARNet’s Telepresence Manager Don Mackintosh said, “This is a great example of Australia’s research and education network delivering new technologies and opportunities to support innovation i n teaching, learning and research.”

“Immersive video conferencing requires the transfer of a huge amount data between the locations over low latency, low jitter networks,” he said, citing upwards of 30Mbps for a call between two three-screen systems. This is only possible across a high bandwidth network such as AARNet.

By using VVOIP (video and voice over Internet protocol), the AARNet Unified Communications Exchange makes it consistently easy for end-users to connect a call using a range of devices and systems.

The advantages of the AARNet Unified Communications Exchange service include:

  • Reliability and ease of use.
  • Entire organisations are able to easily connect with thousands of users through a single exchange instead of enterprises individually dealing with multiple firewall and network complexities.
  • Calls can be easily made between the smallest mobile devices, laptops, desktops, room-based videoconferencing and immersive three-screen telepresence systems.
  • Provides a reliable base platform for a range of media services, such as virtual meeting rooms and conference streaming and recording.

UNE is one of a growing number of Australian universities now using the AARNet Communications Exchange to manage cross institution voice and video calls around Australia and the globe.
