Visionaire, the leading Information & Communication Technology (ICT) solution provider and system integrator in the Middle East region today announced that it has been awarded the prestigious ‘Systems Integrator of the Year Award’ for the year 2013 by region’s leading IT Networking magazine Network World Middle East.
The System Integrator of the Year award recognizes Visionaire for its excellence and innovative vendor agnostic approach to Systems Integration apart from dedication to quality and service while implementing several major projects including RTA, Dubai, Baker Botts, Booz Allen Hamilton, Zayed University, Abu Dhabi Education Council, IRENA, Masdar and UAEU to name a few. But the notable among all is the UAE University –Integrated Residential Campus Project.
UAE University’s world-class award winning campus is comprised of more than 55 buildings making up the integrated campus with approximately 290,000 m2 of newly built, state-of-the-art teaching, residential and recreational facilities. The new campus houses one of the largest such academic full 10 Gig. networks in the region comprising of more than 445 wiring closets which connect to more than 37,000 IP ports via redundant fiber.
The UAEU-SkyNet (802.11 n wireless network) consists of about 3000 wireless access points providing a full coverage all over the campus. The ICT network design is based on full layer 3 routing from the core to access providing enhanced performance as compared to the traditional design of having layer 3 between core and distribution supported by an average contention ratio of 5:1. This is important since this next generation network supports low latency and extensive bandwidth for Research & Video applications such as -High Performance Computing, IPTV, Digital Signage, Central reservations and control, Lecture Capture, HD Video Conferencing and Telepresence as part of the Unified Communications Systems.
The campus technology is designed to support academic and research functions using best-of-breed systems integration, purpose designed for UAEU by Visionaire to meet immediate and future needs of UAEU.
