The Texas A&M University System Leverages Ribbon's IP Wave Solutions for its Private 5G Network
Supports advanced experimentation, technology development, testing and evaluation at leading applied research facility
Designed specifically for the TAMU research community, the network connects the labs at the Internet2 Technology Evaluation Center (ITEC) with Engineering and Computer Science labs on TAMU's main campus, the public safety training area at Disaster City, and the labs and testbeds at the RELLIS Campus.
"As one of the world's most advanced research centers, we require a state-of-the-art network to conduct testing in areas such as autonomous vehicles, robotics, advanced manufacturing, smart grids, software defined networking, next generation wireless networks, and more," said Michael Fox, Interim Executive Director, ITEC, TAMU. "Working with Ribbon ensures that we benefit from the highest guaranteed performance for these mission critical communications."
The network leverages Ribbon's advanced NPT 1800 multi service aggregation router and NPT 2100 access edge and pre aggregation router, part of Ribbon's comprehensive IP Wave portfolio, for increased performance and availability. Architected to help providers build and operate multi-layer data and optical networks, IP Wave solutions seamlessly fuse optimized hardware and automation software with an open architecture, and deliver the agility required to rapidly create and implement innovative new services.
"TAMU is a world-class university with unparalleled research capabilities, and we're proud to support them with solutions that enable continued innovation across an extensive range of disciplines," said
