With an impressive graduate employment record, the University of Suffolk prides itself on combining university tradition with the modern world of employment and entrepreneurship.
Today the University announced the deployment of a world-class technology infrastructure with Cisco and ITGL to support that ambition.
From training paramedics to bioscientists, the university has a strong focus on industry-facing qualifications that help students to learn practical skills for their future careers.
With approximately 5,000 students, the campus in Ipswich will undergo a complete overhaul of its network infrastructure with the introduction of an intent-based network that can uniquely understand, interpret and fulfil the needs of users, applications and devices connected to it.
Peter O’Rourke, Director of IT, University of Suffolk, said, “Everything we aim to achieve as a university is driven by our academic strategy for growth and sustainable development. Our IT infrastructure is critical to implementing this vision and our investment in world-class technology is a tangible demonstration of the University’s commitment to provide an excellent service for our staff, students, and stakeholders.”
“The support from ITGL has already been fantastic. Working with them has been hugely beneficial, not only from having the opportunity to work with a closer-knit group of experts, but with the quality of the feedback and the consultancy we’ve received during the planning of this exciting next step forward for the University.”
Martin Butler, Head of Further Education, Cisco UK & Ireland said, “Technology is creating new opportunities for how we learn, innovate and inspire. With such a significant and diverse set of students and staff on the University of Suffolk campus, it is vital that the infrastructure is in place to support the ambitions of the next generation and continue to establish them as a pioneer in education. We’re delighted to be working with the University and ITGL to build its technology foundation for the future.”
