Sangfor Technologies has improved the infocomm network for Hwa Chong Institution (HCI), a premier school in Singapore.
Sangfor specialises in WAN devices, mostly targeted for emerging market segments. The company offers SANGFOR Internet Access Management (IAM) products that can provide powerful functions and are also easy to operate.
According to Sangfor, HCI is using its IAM solution as part of its continuing efforts to enrich its students' learning experience.
Sangfor IAM's internet access monitoring and bandwidth optimisation solutions are helping HCI to reduce non-priority Internet usage such as P2P media streaming in a significant manner.
Thanks to the real-time network visibility and reporting capability, IT Administrator of the school can easily optimise network access speed.
Both students and teachers are now experiencing faster online access and more reliable connectivity. Ultimately, the solution has improved productivity in online instructions and project work.
Reduction of connectivity speed
Sangfor claims its IAM series is an effective solution for a range of activities such as P2P traffic management, intranet data leakage prevention, regulatory risk avoidance, Internet access logging, and online security.
Its solution effectively helped more than 2,000 users accessing the HCI network, which generates over two million records daily. Typically, over 800 users access the network at any given moment via the Internet and activities such as video streaming, and peer-to-peer (P2P) sharing congested the network previously.
All these activities significantly reduced connectivity speed. Also, the quality of pedagogical interaction between faculty and students was impacted due to issues with online teaching, student assignments and project work.
These issues are now addressed by Sangfor IAM suite of solutions that provides network administrators with a powerful set of tools to enhance their ability to monitor and manage network traffic more effectively.
