Our Janet-connected member organisations will need to periodically refresh their network infrastructure to provide the quality of connectivity that their users will expect. In this session we will discuss a variety of issues around such refreshes, including:

  • What is current best practice when looking to tender for new backbone, edge, firewall or WiFi equipment?
  • What factors influence current campus network designs?
  • How do off site data centres or cloud hosting affect your refresh plans?
  • How can Jisc’s equipment purchasing frameworks or other services help you with your refresh?

This Tech 2 Tech event will be of interest to:

  • Network managers
  • Technical network staff
  • IT operations managers
  • Senior network engineers

Your organisation must be connected to the Janet Network to attend this online event.
