Challenge

As a pioneer for ecological lifestyle and good education, the National School of Business Management (NSBM) in Pitipana, Sri Lanka, aims to have a top-flight campus infrastructure. The NSBM Green University Town wants to be the first ecological university in southern Asia. Studies and degrees, teaching, research and infrastructure all correspond to world-class standards.

Currently around 9,000 students are studying on the 26-acre campus. The university’s commitment to excellence in education extends beyond the actual courses. It has close relationships with industry to provide students with opportunities of experiencing real-world workplaces at first hand.

The School of Computing of the NSBM has recently been added to the university’s offer. It teaches Computing Technology, Information Technology, Design, Mathematics, Statistics. The university combines research and development, innovative teaching methods and practical training with state-of-the-art equipment.

The NSBM thus needed a campus LAN to cater to this high level. It was to be fast, secure, reliable and long-lasting.

Solution

Comprehensive structured cabling was installed. The R&M solution contains Cat. 6 cables and Cat. 6 components as well as 12-core singlemode fibers.

A local IT consultant supported the planners and the university in the evaluation of the most suitable campus solution. R&M convinced them with a ready-to-install concept. Enterprise Technology Private Ltd (ETPL), as system integrator, played a major role in selecting the right solution for this prestigious greenfield project.

Result

Chamindra Attanayaka, IT Manager at NSBM: “R&M has helped us achieve a secure network with faster data transfer capabilities. The R&M solutions are the perfect match and we are sure that these products will be reliable long term.”

“We are sure that these products will be reliable long term.” Chamindra Attanayaka, IT Manager NSBM
