Ir. Prof. Dr. Wow Hearing
Vice President of Internationalization and Academic Development
University Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR)
As the pandemic struck, like many other educational institutions, Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR) had to move its physical lectures to online lectures. Offering up to 121 academic programs to more than 21,000 students locally and internationally, the use of distance lectures online has led to a huge increase in data traffic to the university’s internal cloud server. To take care of this huge leap in data traffic, UTAR has increased their Internet capacity with the H3C as its ISP, and also upgraded its internal cloud server and network switch facilities with the help of the H3C.
UTAR first turned to the H3C in 2020 to improve and upgrade its campus network and wireless system, as the COVID-19 pandemic called on them to take another step in the process of digitalization transformation. IN May 2021, UTAR acquired and implemented H3C products and solutions on one of its campuses, the UTAR Kampar campus. On September 23, 2021, H3Cs signed a Memorandum of Understanding (Memorandum of Understanding) with UTAR, which further enhances their partnership while driving In Malaysia forward of the digital economy in the education industry.
H3C has started a strategic collaboration with UTAR to share its experience and joint development of research, as well as to facilitate the exchange of ideas and facilities. H3C also provided UTAR’s campus network, Wi-Fi 6 solution and Cloudnet solution, using the latest public cloud management platform to monitor and manage their network devices. In addition, one of H3C’s partners, Extreme Broadband Sdn Bhd, a local Internet service provider, has provided UTAR with broadband Internet service.
The campus network Wi-Fi 6 provides a seamless connection for UTAR students
Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman is a leading private non-profit university in Malaysia which was established under the UTAR Education Foundation and registered under the Malaysian Private Higher Education Act of 1996. As one of the best universities in Malaysia, they provide affordable quality education for the community, ranging from foundation, bachelor’s and postgraduate programs.
Advancing in the digital future, UTAR has acquired the H3C Future-Ready Wi-Fi 6, specifically designed to meet the challenges of current and future wireless network users. This has helped UTAR provide seamless wireless connectivity to its faculty and students to conduct or attend daily online classes. The Wi-Fi 6 solution is one of the fastest Wi-Fi 6 on the market that the H3C is proud of. It delivers the highest performance with the highest wireless bandwidth per customer, representing the fastest Wi-Fi connection speed tested by The Tolly Group, the world’s leading testers.
In addition, the H3C’s Wi-Fi 6 integrates cutting-edge technologies such as AI, Big Data, Cloud, freeing up networks with precise, intelligent and simple operations and support. It is also ready for IoT for multiple IoT protocols with flexible IoT extension, which reduces construction costs and simplifies O&M. Often used in densely packed lecture halls, e-classrooms and large campuses, the H3C Wi-Fi 6 campus network with software-defined radio frequency provides a signal wherever you go, making it the best solution to support UTAR’s travel. digital transformation.
Cloud authorization contributes to simplified network management
Another widely implemented solution from UTAR is H3C’s Cloudnet Solution, a cloud-based unified wireless and wired network management service. This management tool provides simple but scalable management for UTAR as the university moves its classes online. With their data stored securely in the cloud, they are more secure and visible with the management of OpEx-optimized OMs. The Cloudnet platform adopts an advanced solution for full containerization and a fully distributed deployment architecture. Based on this, the computational resources can be adapted adaptively and distributed according to the business characteristics of UTAR and to achieve flexible expansion and business iteration unknown to the user.
Cloudnet enables the university network through a unified cloud for operation and maintenance of the U-Center, which allows minimal network deployment, while achieving minute-level deployment, with zero operation and on-site support. By managing and monitoring multiple network services, the platform breaks down the data barriers between services caused by isolated and vertical service deployments, reducing the time required for UTAR’s internal operation online. In addition, AI empowerment allows for minimal network operation and maintenance, intelligent network optimization, fault prediction, and provides the university with an excellent user experience.
By using Cloudnet to empower the management of the Campus network, it enhances UTAR’s business innovation through strong data capabilities. Ultimately improve the efficiency of campus activities. The H3C’s Cloudnet Solution is a new generation network transformation solution for businesses like UTAR, providing them with simple network deployment, maximum networking experience and powerful value-added services.
The H3C’s WA6622 speeds up UTAR’s network infrastructure 10 times faster
The network infrastructure for the UTAR Kampar campus has existed for more than 14 years, with the main network capacity supporting a connection of up to 1Gbps. After the outbreak of COVID-19, Malaysia has imposed a national blockade, forcing teachers and students to work or study remotely from home. The impact of the pandemic has led to UTAR’s current capacity to no longer support the large amount of network needed for high-bandwidth activities, such as online courses and video conferencing.
To increase bandwidth and network infrastructure speed, the H3C has provided UTAR with its latest generation of wireless access points, the WA6622, for a stable network experience. The product has helped the university improve its connection from 1Gbps to 10Gbps, helping teachers to stream online classes without interruption. Lecturers can also forward assignment files to their students without worrying about file size or internet speed. On the other hand, students can experience online lectures in real time, while receiving or downloading assignments anytime and anywhere.
The H3C WA6622 access points have 802.11ax dual radio technology. They provide a transfer rate at least twice as fast as 802.11ac products. This makes the product suitable for high-density access scenarios, such as university campuses, e-school bag applications, and stadiums. The WA6622’s high bandwidth and low latency with built-in antennas also support multi-speed uplink ports with a maximum speed of 5Gbps or 10Gbps. They are compact in appearance and support both wall and ceiling mounting.
High confidence in the digitalization of the UTAR campus by providing professional support
Since the pandemic began, many educational institutions have had to undergo a digital transformation to meet the needs of online education and adapt to the COVID-19 situation. The same is true for universities like UTAR, which began a digital transformation many years ago and makes continuous improvements in its digitalization efforts every year. Reaffirming the role of the H3C in this partnership, Ir. Professor Dr. Yui Hong Tat, President and CEO of UTAR said: “With the entry of H3C, we are confident that we will be able to digitize our operations on campus to adapt In Malaysia a rapidly changing economy and takes care of rapidly changing ICT changes. ”
UTAR has made impressive strides in establishing a strong reputation as a comprehensive university with a commitment to excellence in teaching and research. In addition, H3C will work with UTAR to implement talent incentive programs, including training certification programs, a H3C network lab, and internship training programs. H3C would like to shape the future of talent to understand the world of the digital economy, as the company believes that innovation, digitalization and collaboration will illuminate the future. H3C takes its customer orientation as its main mission, focusing on fully supporting customer business innovation and striving to contribute the most to the continuous development and enhancement of its customers.
