Network Automation and Non-Stop Operation for Education Campus

NIT Raipur’s new Allied Telesis network is one of the first deployments of an SDN-enabled network in the campus of an Institute of National Importance in India. The new LAN has many advanced features, such as a centralized SDN controller, automatic configuration, backup and restoration, automatic firmware updates, plug ‘n’ play capability, zero-touch provisioning, data, voice and video convergence, and multi-service support. This state-of-art LAN has been a game-changing value-for-money solution for the Institute, and the network is completely ready for the future large-scale deployment of advanced campus LAN services such as Unified Communication, Video Streaming and IP TV.

The key objectives for our campus network were convergence, high performance, low latency, resilience, fail-safe operation, security, availability, automation, minimum maintenance, agility, scalability, robustness and future-proofing, while balancing the Total Cost of Ownership. The Allied Telesis solution effortlessly meets our stringent requirements and has proven itself over the last three years of operation. 160 Gbps dynamic failover at the core, sub-50 ms ring convergence, a high level of network automation and SDN-based management are some of the features which characterize our new advanced network.
