17 Oct 2006

Communications company Damovo has been selected to provide Nortel equipment and services to the University of Ulster for the next three years, it emerged today.

The university has more than 23,000 students, 3,800 academic staff and five main campuses and runs a large network infrastructure to support its academic and administrative functions.

With six libraries, 57 computer laboratories and 6,000 network connections it is vital that the university has the right equipment, maintenance and support package to keep this key communications platform performing to its optimum efficiency.

Damovo’s John McCabe said that his company will work closely with Nortel and the Corporate Information Systems Department of the University of Ulster to deliver a communications infrastructure capable of carrying voice, video and data traffic across the university’s five campuses.

The University of Ulster’s network manager Harry Young said: “We chose to work with Damovo because it has an excellent track record in implementing and supporting best-of-breed technology solutions. Damovo offered us the best technical solution for the university at the best value for money.”
