ComTech upgrades Internet gateways to 10 Gb/s

To keep up with campus’ ever-increasing need for bandwidth, Communication Technologies (ComTech) has increased the university’s Internet gateways to the NC Research and Education Network (NCREN) from 1 to 10 Gb/s. NCREN, a service of MCNC, “is one of the nation’s first and one of the world’s leading statewide regional optical networks.” ComTech’s next step is to increase the campus networking backbone from 1 to 4 Gb/s. These enhancements will continue to keep NC State among leading research universities and help the university stay ahead of the curve of the ever-expanding need for data movement of students, faculty and staff.
