Configuring campus internal networks for connecting to the AARNet high performance research and education network for the first time is a vital and sometimes complex step in the migration process.
Faced with a tight deadline and infrastructure across two campuses to manage, the IT department at The Gordon TAFE in Geelong recently contracted engineers from AARNet’s Enterprise Services division to help with this task.
The engineers provided The Gordon with advice for suitable AARNet4 service options for dual site network diversity, new network hardware options and planning the migration, as well as hands-on configuration and support during the cutover.
Tapping into the expertise of AARNet engineers enabled The Gordon TAFE to optimize the network for meeting the institution’s needs now and in the future and provided a solution that mitigated the risk of the migration causing a disruption to The Gordon’s Internet services.
