Building a Secure Data Center Interconnect
The highly acclaimed London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) shares data centers with other universities and taps into the Janet academic network.
The LSE campus in central London serves 9,600 students from 140 countries, and its staff numbers more than 3300. The school connects to other higher-education establishments and a regional academic network with a strong focus on security and future-proofing.
A secure 10-Gbps network supports more than 200 applications, enabling better research and teaching capabilities. The Ethernet VPN lets LSE retain its virtual LAN design while mitigating the risks of large Layer-2 networks. Automation makes it easy to implement network configurations.
